Kofax Kapow™ - Robotic Process Automation

Kofax Kapow robotic process automation platform is the fastest and most efficient way to acquire, enhance, and deliver information -- especially from websites and web portals -- into enterprise applications. Information that was previously unattainable, unusable, or costly to integrate is now readily consumable to drive productivity and insight into the decision-making process. Kofax Kapow robotic process automation software puts the power of external web data, combined with internal data sources, directly into the hands of users, so employees are informed, agile and empowered. With its scalable and high performance integration engine and intuitive visual design environments, Kapow helps to build and integrate data-driven workflows to automate processes that span across external websites and web portals, internal enterprise applications and databases, and Excel, driving efficiencies and improving profitability.

The Kofax Kapow™ Robotic Process Automation 
(RPA) Platform

Kofax Kapow is used by thousands of customers for competitive intelligence, investment research, brand monitoring, and enterprise process automation. The platform permits business users to control information integrations and workflows rapidly, under IT governance.

Solution Spotlight 
Vendor Management 

Many ERP and accounting systems provide some flavor of vendor management capability. Their functionality can range from being very basic to far exceeding your organization's requirements. In many cases, the effort to implement vendor management may be complex.  On top of all these considerations is the user experience.  Software needs to be simple yet flexible and functional. 

A possible solution may be a tool that resides outside your ERP system while still integrating with your ERP system as the system of record.  OnBase is a point and click configurable application designed to be simpler to implement and at the same time provide a user-friendly interface to make user adoption simple and productive. 

OnBase's vendor management solution can include functionality that allows accounting, procurement and other personnel to interact with vendor-specific information, compliance documents, contract details and correspondences in one central location. A complete vendor management solution equips organizations to standardize vendor sourcing, maximize relationships and make better decisions by monitoring issues and reporting on vendor compliance and performance.

Maybe your vendor management requirements simply require a tool to manage the vendor master data or maybe you need the complete functionality a vendor management solution can provide.  OnBase is flexible and can augment your ERP system with a solution based on your requirements that is configurable and provides a user- friendly interface.

What's New 

All Star Offers  New Admin Service  

All Star Software Systems is now offering a monthly Admin Service for Kofax Capture, Kofax KTM and OnBase by Hyland.
To get the most out of your solution, it is critical that it not only be kept up to date and error free, but requests for administrative functions must be done in a timely manner that support the business users' requirements. We recognize that resources are tight and IT staffing is often backed up or simply doesn't have the expertise needed to effectively administer a complex solution. To cover this gap, All Star is offering Admin Services as a supplemental monthly service. 
All Star will perform these functions remotely on specified intervals. All changes will be documented and summarized in report. Any system restarts or changes will be communicated and approved prior to service. All urgent errors will be reported immediately. All other data will be collected and provided in a monthly system report. 
In addition to performing the monthly functions listed below, All Star will provide a block of monthly hours to be used for administrative changes, system changes, training, testing or general assistance that may fall outside of standard support.

Options include: Monthly Services only or Monthly Plus 2, 5 or 10 hours.  Please contact Paul Pitts at for options and pricing details.  

All Star can create the right solution for you and help you maintain it. Our new monthly Admin Service is just one way we can assist you in helping you move your business forward. Connect with us today to find out why so many other organizations are happy to have made that call!

Team News: All Star Celebrates Another
10-Year Milestone

All Star Software Systems strives to create the best work-life balance and morale for all team members, and the opportunity to celebrate yet one more 10-year employee anniversary is a testament to our passion for excellence and the quality of life we all enjoy here.
Scott St. Laurent began his tenure with All Star in 2007 and is currently a Solution Development Specialist who is dedicated to quality and focused on details.   While Scott has typically been dedicated to back office / behind the scenes operations, his excellent customer service skills have shifted his role to being an integral part of the Solutions Management Group where he can work more closely with customers. In addition, he is involved in designing systems, developing solutions and managing projects.  

 Scott St. Laurent
Solution Development Specialist

Reflecting on his ten years with All Star, Vice President Paul Pitts said, "I've worked with Scott for almost 20 years now (10 at a prior company that also developed content management solutions). Back then and still today, his strong suit is his commitment to quality. Scott is detail oriented and is the "go to" guy when a project requires a broad spectrum of skills. His background in Software Quality Assurance, understanding how the development process works, knowledge of IT, Azure and attention to detail make him the ideal choice for difficult tasks." 
Congratulations to Scott for his outstanding contributions in ten years of service and for his unwavering dedication to both customers and the All Star team!
