Kofax, Inc.



This guide shows how to configure EMC Documentum 5.3 and Kofax Front-Office Server.

Document types in Documentum appear as destinations in Kofax Front-Office Server. In

Documentum Administrator, you create cabinets and document types and grant permissions to

the necessary users. You can add Kofax Front-Office Server users to Documentum or use Kofax

Front-Office Web Client to associate Kofax Front-Office Server users with Documentum users.
