Kofax also offers you a generous free trial with which new customers can leverage Kofax Capture for up to 10,000 scanned or imported pages with no license or maintenance cost. Kofax Capture is designed for big enterprises which is reflected in their pricing model.
With Docsumo, you don’t need to make a huge investment. You can start with $2,000 for 10,000 documents/month.

Docsumo is currently a cloud-based SAAS solution compatible with any web-browser whereas Kofax works as both - an on-premise software and a browser based solution.
It requires minimum efforts to install Docsumo smoothly within your system whereas installation and integration of Kofax cannot be done without a system integrator.
Data Extraction and validation - Since data extraction and validation are the core of invoice processing, Docsumo has left no stone unturned to perfect it.
