Gartner has positioned Laserfiche highest on the Ability to Execute axis of the Niche quadrant in the September 25, 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision.
Laserfiche announced that its executive board has appointed Chris Wacker as the company’s CEO and Karl Chan as the company’s president.
Thomas Phelps IV has joined Laserfiche as Chief Corporate Strategist and CIO to lead the company’s Marketing and Information Technology (IT) organizations.
“We really put a lot of emphasis on making as much of city hall information available on the Web as possible,” said IT Manager Anthony Neumann, adding that Oshkosh provides the public with access to documents across 12 departments using Laserfiche’s WebLink software.
Over time, agencies and colleges within The Texas A&M University System invested in electronic content management systems to improve efficiencies and reduce costs of operations. Faced with multiple vendor-supplied ECM and homegrown departmental solutions, the university decided to centralize and consolidate future implementations using a strategic approach.
Like any organization looking for returns on technology projects, the Long Beach Police Department monitors specific metrics. Most important, Ivora says, is the number of arrests. In 2009, before the system went in, officers made 25 gang-injunction arrests. In 2010, the year the system was installed, there were 140. In 2011, 181. Long Beach was expected to finish 2012 with an estimated 250 gang-injunction arrests. The technology made the policy effective, he says.
In terms of paper reduction, the iPads and Laserfiche approach have reduced 14 file cabinets-full of paper records to two drawers in a single cabinet, with a resulting savings in records processing, Gray said. He didn’t have an estimate of the amount saved, but said, “It’s cost effective and paying for itself. There’s savings in paper and to the community looking up documents.”
For many universities, the road to a paperless workflow couldn’t be called a path of least resistance. Complex, paper-heavy processes, combined with staffers clinging to old ways, make it difficult to implement new document management technology.
Situated in south-central Idaho’s Magic Valley, D.L. Evans Bank was founded in 1904, a year before the westward flowing Snake River was first dammed and diverted to fill canals running north and south into the valley to turn what had been inhospitable desert into farmland.
Through a high-tech application of the city’s gang injunction program, Long Beach is making it very hard to be a gangster these days. By 2011, the year after the injunction changes were made, gang related murder dropped 52 percent while gang related shootings dropped 14 percent. Overall violent crime was down 13.5 percent in the same year and 887 guns were taken off the streets.
