Kofax plc (LSE: KFX), the leading provider of document driven business process automation solutions, today announced that its recent Transform 2009 Americas and EMEA end user customer and channel partner conference attracted over 800 registrations representing a 45 percent increase over the same events in the prior year.
For the first time Transform 2009 included the participation of Kofax’s valued network of global channel partners and end user customers across multiple vertical industries spanning banking, insurance, healthcare, government and manufacturing. Combined, the two events drew over 250 end user registrations, representing approximately 30 percent of the total attendance compared to approximately 30 end user customer attendees in the prior year. Based on a post event survey 89 percent of the delegates agreed that the conference delivered the expected value and 72 percent indicated that they will recommend attending the next Transform events to their colleagues.
The events focused on providing participants with practical strategies, insights to best practices relating to the implementation of document driven process automation solutions, hands on product certification and training and thought leadership presentations covering a wide range of industry specific applications.
“The high attendance, especially by end user customers, speaks to the global demand for our document driven process automation solutions,” said Alan Kerr, Executive Vice President of Field Operations at Kofax. “Transform 2009 provided an ideal forum for organizations to identify and pursue ways of increasing efficiency, reducing costs, improving productivity and generating fast ROIs.”
