The First Mile[edit]

The “First Mile” is a trademark of Kofax;[7][not in citation given] it is intended to describe the initial information-intensive interactions customers have with an organization, such as loan applications, claims submissions, and new account openings. The company claims[citation needed] to make these initial interactions better for customers by providing software and technology applications – document capture, process management, dynamic case management, mobile applications and analytics software – to connect an organization's system of record (e.g., ERP, CRM and LOB systems) with its systems of engagement (e.g., email, fax, web portals, mobile devices).[8]
