“X marks the spot where people are the ‘X-factor’ in DX. As such, everything – from touch points and processes to front- and back-end systems – has to have a soul,” said Brian Solis, Principal Analyst, Altimeter, a Prophet company and Inspire 2017 keynote speaker. “Kofax lives and breathes this mantra, connecting its technology to positive experiences. At the conference, I’ll expand on this focus, sharing how to build bridges with technology to create more meaningful customer experiences and forge more valuable relationships.”

“Our annual Inspire Conference gives customers and partners an exclusive opportunity to gain in depth insight into our products, learn how customers are implementing our solutions to achieve their objectives and network with industry experts and their peers,” said Reynolds C. Bish, Chief Executive Officer of Kofax. “The addition of Brian Solis to the Inspire 2017 lineup rounds out an already robust educational agenda to help our customers jumpstart their digital transformation journeys.”
