Cranel Inc. Partners with Kofax® to Distribute ControlSuite, Offering Unparalleled Print and Capture Technology

Kofax ControlSuite Combines Unmatched Capabilities and Scalability

Columbus, Ohio — 08/09/2019 — Cranel Inc. today announced an expanded partnership with Kofax, a leading supplier of Intelligent Automation software to digitally transform end-to-end business operations. The agreement enables Cranel’s network of Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and Office Equipment Dealers (OEDs) to sell Kofax ControlSuite, which empowers organizations to manage, secure and govern documents with unified print, capture and workflow automation on multi-function printer (MFP) fleets. 

Kofax ControlSuite is an entirely new print and capture software solution that simplifies and enables the central management and governance of content flowing through MFP fleets, mobile and desktop devices, email, and print streams. In addition, Kofax ControlSuite actively manages, secures, and governs virtually every aspect of the distribution in documents via printing, scanning, routing, and storing throughout the enterprise – across any combination of hybrid systems, technologies, and devices – including mixed MFP environments. The innovative solution provides unmatched efficiency through unified printing, scanning, and workflow processes.

“This is tomorrow’s automation technology available today,” said Scott Slack, Cranel’s Vice President of Marketing and Support. “As documents and data continue to evolve, ControlSuite is the proven solution for digital transformation and automation of business processes from the small and midsize business (SMB) to enterprise.  The software reduces compliance costs, increases efficiency, and provides a compelling return on investment.”

Kofax ControlSuite is a unified platform that enables a single installation and configuration of print, capture, and output management technologies. Its modular platform contains next-generation versions of several best-of-breed products:  Kofax Equitrac 6, Kofax AutoStore 8, and Kofax Output Manager 5.

Equitrac 6 expands upon its robust print management capabilities with new mobile print release capabilities, Micro Card Reader Smartphone authentication, enhanced security capabilities, a new web-based administration console, and basic scan to email or file.

AutoStore 8 augments its rich capture capabilities with new authentication services, Micro Card Reader Smartphone authentication, enhanced mobile capture capabilities, and healthcare workflow with HL7 and CDA support.

Output Manager 5 has enriched its output management capabilities with new Micro Card Reader Smartphone authentication, a new Epic connector to service healthcare, an enhanced mobile app, advanced deployment options, and basic scan to email or file.


Businesses seek accurate and timely access to information, while reducing mistakes and errors inherent in paper-driven processes. Kofax ControlSuite boosts productivity by ensuring that documents and information get to the right people at the right time, every time, through automated workflows and processes. It also enables enterprises to securely manage and govern documents – supporting compliance by automatically generating audit trails that track documents and how they‘re accessed and used.

Kofax ControlSuite pairs well with Cranel’s best-in-class service. Throughout the entire buyer’s journey, the team at Cranel is available to assess client requirements, configure a tailored solution, answer questions on-demand, and recommend best practices to ensure long-term value. In addition, Cranel offers Kofax certified engineers who seamlessly install the solution and provide ongoing support.

“We‘re committed to digital transformation and automation,” added Slack. “Kofax ControlSuite is an important piece of our portfolio because of the value it provides to our customers. Security threats and breaches are increasing while compliance regulations continue to tighten. Kofax ControlSuite addresses both, while also improving user experience. Its value is unmatched.”
