MasterControl Joins Kofax Technology Alliance Partner Program

SALT LAKE CITY – May 22, 2007 – MasterControl Inc. today announced that it has joined the Kofax Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. Kofax is the world's largest information capture vendor. This partnership will enable life science companies to automate the capture and delivery of legacy documentation into the MasterControl electronic document management system.

?Customers moving into an electronic environment often ask, ?What do we do with our legacy documentation?'? said Michael Bothe, MasterControl vice president of business development. ?Our partnership with Kofax is the answer to that need. We are developing a new process that will capture documents and allow direct delivery of key information into MasterControl, creating a single, secure, and organized electronic repository for all critical information.?

MasterControl's custom ?release scripts? will utilize Kofax's information capture technology in conjunction with MasterControl tools to automatically upload and store documents in the MasterControl system. Once in the system, documents can be routed, linked to other documents, escalated, and approved electronically. This automation of access to GxP documentation and processes will help life science companies save time and effort, especially in organizing, searching, and tracking documents.

Kofax products enable the automation of business processes by collecting paper documents, forms, and e-documents from throughout organizations, transforming them into retrievable information, and delivering it all into line-of-business applications, databases, and archives.
