As we wrote in Why Should I Implement Kofax Capture version 10? (Pt 1), Kofax Capture v10 was released in February 2012 and as usually happens with older versions of software, there has been an End of Line (EOL) announcement for Kofax Capture v8.x.
In their announcement they stated,
"Kofax announced the End-of-Life Process for Kofax Capture versions 8.x on August 31, 2011. The End of Life Process for Kofax Capture versions 8.x encompasses the follow schedule and important milestones:
We are also of the opinion that instead of just upgrading to Capture v9.x, it is better to take the leap to Capture v10.
Capture v10 offers an easier interface that looks and acts much like Microsoft Excel and Word therefore allowing for a quicker learning curve and more productive workflow. Scanning has been streamlined and automated. See our blog post, Why Should I Implement Kofax Capture version 10? (Pt 1), to further explain these two updated functions.
In our second blog post about the benefits of Kofax Capture v10, Why Should I Implement Kofax Capture version 10? (Pt 2), we reference how Capture v10, also takes advantage of a built-in Validation Thin Client and centralized Kofax's VRS

Yakidoo is pleased to announce a new project management and support service portal for our customers. The portal will be available to Yakidoo customers who have engaged us to deploy capture and electronic content management solutions and services. Yakidoo solutions are available as a stand-alone systems (you own them) or as a managed service or via the cloud. Regardless of the solution type, the deployment and support of these solutions is critical along with the approach and tools used to manage the project and customer relationship.
The customer portal will act as the relationship hub for customers and Yakidoo where they can stay up to date and on the same page on the status of projects, an invoice, a bug or an issue. It will gather all important information, communications, tasks and milestones critical to the success of a project, a service contract and ultimately our relationship with each other.
We believe you're looking for processes, methodologies, approaches and workflows that are productive. Productivity hinges on two things: efficiency and effectiveness. Efficiency is how fast one can do something and effective is whether doing it creates the desired outcome with optimal benefit.
There are many moving parts to a successful implementation and ongoing performance of a system like the ones we deploy, manage and offer via the cloud. The successful integrators and solution providers of the future will provide customers with open, complete and authentic access to all information related to current projects, support incidents and customer service engagement. But, it's not just about providing this information it's about how it is provided and whether it makes us all productive. This is where the vision behind our customer portal comes in.
We are all inundated with emails today and unfortunately it has become the catchall for many forms of communications some important but many not important. Your inbox, unless your an Outlook whiz, doesn't set context and won't organize your emails based on priority let alone remind you to take action!
We don't believe that a project can or should be managed using emails let alone our relationships with our customers. That's why we're deploying our customer portal. This portal will provide our customers with a comprehensive overview of all activities completed and active with Yakidoo with respect to projects, service issues and prospective projects. It helps both our customers and Yakidoo have a more open and holistic view of the nature of a project, a service issue and our relationship.
