Credential Securities, Inc., employs more than 2,000 staff and representatives who provide integrated wealth management solutions and services to Canadian credit unions, with over $10.8 billion in assets under management.

Monica Baccardax, IT Project Manager for the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University Medical School, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, finds Laserfiche a solid improvement over the school’s old system of managing records with paper and custom software applications. Relying on custom databases and spreadsheets was fine—as long as a programmer was available to keep the system current. Laserfiche is not only much quicker and much more reliable, but gives her many more options to collect, store, search and import data.
Not that she wants to reinvent the wheel. “The Medical School has been collecting student and resident records for many years,” she says, “and has developed a workable filing method. Rather than change something that works well for them, I created the Laserfiche system to follow their method.”
Time was, when an officer from Ontario’s Hamilton Police Service (HPS) responded to investigate a call about an EDP (emotionally disturbed person), they’d have two choices to determine risk factors as they proceeded: either drive back to the station with the EDP to look up past reports – or place a call and wait for a Records Clerk to pull the report and read it to them over the phone. Either way, the officer would be off the street, sometimes for hours, waiting for the necessary information to act on.
These days, however, an officer responding to the same call can pull up reports right in their patrol car, accessing information vital to the safety of the EDP – and the public – using just a name, incident number or other simple keyword.
