Lexmark launches Kofax View+ for Outlook

Lexmark has announced the availability of Kofax View, claimed to be the first document viewing, editing and PDF creation application for Outlook and available for free in the Office Store.

Kofax View+ works directly with Outlook 2013 and Outlook for Office 365 user interfaces, allowing users to complete collaborative tasks – including image viewing and editing, document merging, and PDF creation – without leaving the Outlook application interface.  

Kofax View+ makes it easier to generate PDF documents, increasing productivity and fostering better collaboration throughout email workflows. It builds on the familiar Outlook interface reducing the need for formal user training.

The company says remote deployment and centralised management of Kofax View+ reduces administrative costs when compared to locally-installed desktop applications with similar capabilities.

Kofax View+ is a free showcase application that can be leveraged by enterprises of all sizes that rely on Outlook for document collaboration. Kofax View+ is available now in the Microsoft Office Store.

 “Microsoft Office delivers exceptional workforce productivity and Microsoft Outlook is central to increased productivity through collaboration.  Kofax View+  gives Outlook users—including Outlook for Office 365 users in the cloud—the ability to more easily create, manage and share familiar document types for improved communication that significantly streamlines the workflow process,” said David Caldeira,  product marketing executive, Lexmark Enterprise Software.
