                               SERVICES CONTRACT


THIS AGREEMENT made this TWENTY-FIFTH DAY OF SEPTEMBER, 1995, by and between
MIDCONTINENT BUSINESS SYSTEMS, INC., hereinafter referred to as "MBS," and
KOFAX IMAGE PRODUCTS, hereinafter referred to as "Client,"


                                  WITNESSETH:

WHEREAS, Client has purchased ImagePlus software and desires to have MBS
prepare customized changes to such software;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and premises contained
herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:

    1.    Compensation.  MBS has previously delivered to Client a "Statement of
          Work" for the proposed Project. A copy of such Statement of Work is
          attached and details the tasks to be performed by MBS and also
          represents a cost for such services. MBS hereby agrees to perform all
          work related to the Statement of Work for the sum of [     *     ] 
          [  *  ] AS A GUARANTEED PRE-PAYMENT OF ROYALTY FEES AT [*] PER ASCENT
          SCAN STATION LICENSE FOR THE FIRST 60 LICENSES, AND [*] PER ASCENT
          SCAN STATION LICENSE FOR ALL LICENSES THEREAFTER.

    2.    Test and Acceptance of Project.
             
          a.  At such time as MBS has completed the Project, it shall so inform
              Client. Client shall thereafter, within twenty (20) business days,
              complete such acceptance testing as Client desires to determine
              the functionality, performance and conformance of the Project to
              the specification of the High Level Design Document, hereinafter
              referred to as "Requirements." Client bears the full
              responsibility of assuring that the Project has been completed in
              accordance with the Requirements and to the levels of
              functionality, performance, and other specifications as are
              established in the Requirements. FAILURE OF THE CLIENT TO PERFORM
              SUCH TESTS SHALL PRECLUDE THE CLIENT FROM RAISING ISSUES OF
              FUNCTIONALITY, PERFORMANCE AND NON CONFORMANCE TO THE
              SPECIFICATIONS ESTABLISHED IN THE REQUIREMENTS IN THE EVENT OF ANY
              DISPUTE BETWEEN CLIENT AND MBS.

          b.  Upon completion of Client's pre-acceptance testing, Client shall
              either give MBS a written letter of acceptance or a written letter
              specifying deficiencies in the Project. Such deficiencies shall
              refer with specificity to particular sections of the Requirements.
              In the event of any deficiencies, MBS shall proceed as rapidly as
              feasible to correct such deficiencies. After such deficiencies
              have been corrected by MBS, Client shall again run such
              pre-acceptance tests as it desires and thereupon deliver to MBS
              either a letter of acceptance or list of additional deficiencies.
              This procedure shall be repeated until Client has accepted the
              Project.

    3.    Source Code and Customized Code.  MBS will provide Client with a copy
          of the source code in order to facilitate Client's use of the Project.
          However, MBS shall retain all ownership rights of both the source code
          and all customized codes prepared by MBS in connection with the
          Project. This customized code shall be licensed to Client as set forth
          below. MBS does not permit



*   Confidential portions omitted and
    filed separately with the
    Securities and Exchange Commission.

          modification of the customized code except that if the Client
          determines to modify the code, the following provisions apply.

              a.  All warranties made by MBS pursuant to this Agreement shall
                  immediately terminate.

              b.  Client agrees that it will provide MBS with a copy of the
                  modified source code.

    4.    Changes in the Requirements.  To the extent that the Client, during
          the course of the Project, determines that it wishes to change the
          Requirements for the project, Client shall provide MBS with a proposed
          change order specifying the changes in the Requirements. Upon receipt
          of the proposed change order, MBS shall then provide Client with a
          letter amendment to this Agreement indicating the adjustment of
          acceptance of the change order on the compensation to be paid to MBS
          pursuant to this Agreement. If MBS accepts the change order and the
          Client accepts the adjustment in the compensation to MBS, the parties
          shall enter into a written amendment of this Agreement accepting the
          change order and adjusting the compensation.

    5.    Software to be Licensed.  In addition to completion of the Project,
          the parties desire to enter into a License Agreement whereby Client
          will receive a limited license to utilize the custom programming
          prepared by MBS for Client pursuant to this Agreement. As used
          hereafter, the term Project Software Package includes all custom
          programming including custom codes and source codes utilized by MBS in
          modifying Client's environment to meet the specifications set forth in
          the Requirements.

    6.    Grant of License and Restrictions of License.

              a.  MBS hereby grants to Client, subject to the limitations of
                  this Agreement, a non-exclusive license to use and market
                  the Project Software Package.

              b.  This license is limited by the following conditions:

                  (1)  Unless terminated by MBS due to a breach of this
                       Agreement by Client, Client's license under this
                       Agreement shall be perpetual.

    7.    Protection of MBS's Proprietary Rights.  To protect MBS's proprietary
          rights to the Project Software Package, Client agrees to adhere to the
          conditions listed in Section 6 above. Further, Client agrees to
          instruct all of its employees who may use or have access to the
          Project Software package of the conditions listed in Section 6. Client
          also agrees that it will take all such steps as are necessary to
          prevent any third party from having access to or using or duplicating
          the Project Software Package.

    8.    Maintenance.  MBS shall provide defect only support, directly to the
          client, for the Project Software Package as part of the royalty
          payment to MBS. This support shall remain in effect as long as the
          client's customers maintain a valid support contract with the client.
          Any support which is necessitated by any alterations, tampering or
          repairs performed on the Project Software Package by Client or any
          third party shall be at additional charge to a Client.

    9.    Payments and Special Charges.  Client shall promptly pay all invoices
          sent to Client by MBS in accordance with this Agreement. All charges
          shall be due and payable by Client within thirty (30) days after
          billing by MBS. After that time, a finance charge of 1.5% per month
          will be charged to the outstanding balance.

    10.   Additional Duties of Client.  Client shall promptly report to MBS any
          suspected malfunctions or defects in the Project Software Package.

    11.   Enhancements; Modifications.  If Client desires any modifications in
          the Project Software Package, MBS shall make such modifications, if
          feasible, at a price to be determined by MBS.

    12.   Default.  Either party shall be in default under this Agreement if it
          fails to timely perform or observe any of the terms or conditions of
          this Agreement.

    13.   Remedies. In the event of a default under this Agreement by a party,
          the other party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement upon
          written notice thereof to the defaulting party. In the event of a
          default by MBS, Client's remedies shall be limited to the right to
          recover from MBS the amount of any sums actually paid to MBS under
          this Agreement. If either party terminates this Agreement due to
          default by the other before delivery, acceptance and payment of the
          license fee, Client shall immediately return the Project Software
          package and any other property of MBS which it may have to MBS. In the
          event of a default by Client, MBS shall have any and all rights
          available under law and at equity, including the right to sue for all
          damages incurred and to sue for specific performance. Client agrees
          that upon the occurrence of any actual or threatened breach by Client
          of the restrictions upon the use, sale, transfer, or disclosure of the
          Software Package contained in Section 8 herein, monetary damages alone
          shall not be sufficient remedy or protection for MBS, and MBS shall be
          entitled to such injunctive or other equitable relief as may be deemed
          proper or necessary by a court of competent jurisdiction. Except as
          provided herein, all available rights and remedies shall be cumulative
          and the exercise of any right or remedy shall not be deemed exclusive.
          MBS SHALL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT
          OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, AND CLIENT'S RIGHT TO DAMAGES SUFFERED BY
          REASON OF A DEFAULT HEREUNDER SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE REFUND OF NO
          MORE THAN ANY CHARGES PAID HEREUNDER.

    14.   Limitations of MBS's Warranties.  MBS warrants only that the Project
          Software package shall function as specified by the Requirements and
          that MBS has the right to grant the license contained in this
          Agreement. MBS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER
          EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE PROJECT SOFTWARE PACKAGE OR ITS
          FUNCTIONS OR CAPABILITIES, INCLUDING NO WARRANTY REGARDING THE FITNESS
          OF THE PROJECT SOFTWARE PACKAGE FOR CLIENT'S INTENDED USE(S) OR
          CLIENT'S EQUIPMENT. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary,
          however, MBS shall have no duty to correct, repair, redesign or
          otherwise perform services for the Project Software package (i) once
          Client has accepted the Project Software package, or (ii) if Client
          has in any way modified or tampered with the Project Software Package.
          In addition, MBS shall have no liability for claims concerning
          installation, performance specifications, or capability of the Project
          Software Package unless such claims are made in writing within one
          year after delivery of the Project Software Package by MBS.

    15.   General Provisions. Any waiver by either party of any term or
          condition of this Agreement or a default hereunder shall not be
          constructed as a waiver of any subsequent performance due under that
          term or condition or any other term or condition of any subsequent
          default. The provisions of this Agreement are severable and in the
          event that any provision hereof is held by any court to be voidable or
          unenforceable, such provisions shall be deemed stricken from this
          Agreement and all other terms and conditions shall remain in full
          force and effect, and the parties agree to remain bound by and perform
          in accordance with the terms hereof, as so amended. This Agreement
          constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes
          any previous written, between the parties. This Agreement may not be
          amended or altered except by a writing signed by both parties.

    16.   Governing Law, Jurisdiction, and Venue.  This Agreement shall be
          deemed to be an agreement entered into in the State of South Dakota.
          The laws of the State of south Dakota shall govern this agreement.
          Upon request of MBS, any dispute arising under or in connection with
          this agreement may be submitted to binding arbitration in Sioux Falls,
          SD, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the
