For twenty-five years, Laserfiche has invested heavily in the development of innovative ways to capture information as quickly and efficiently as possible. The Laserfiche Mobile iPhone app takes advantage of the iPhone’s touch screen, gesture recognition and high resolution interface to allows users to easily capture content from wherever they are.

As part of the Laserfiche ECM system, Laserfiche Mobile for iPhone provides an end-to-end solution that extends governance, risk and compliance standards all the way to mobile devices—distributing capture while maintaining auditability over all system interactions, even if they take place on a mobile device.

Highlights:

  • Provide secure, anywhere access to document images and metadata.
  • Create and upload new content from anywhere in the world.
  • Prevent bottlenecks in business processes.
  • Track and audit all mobile activity occurring in Laserfiche.

Offer Secure, Anywhere Access

As more and more content flows in and out of organizations of all sizes, it’s becoming harder and harder to optimize the decision-making process by getting the right information into the right hands at the right time—particularly when decision makers are travelling, meeting with clients or participating in industry events. With Laserfiche Mobile for iPhone, decision makers gain convenient, anywhere access to information stored in the Laserfiche repository—without sacrificing information security.

  • Gain instant access to document images, OCRed text and metadata.
  • Search for stored documents by field, entry name or full-text search.
  • View, print and e-mail documents right from your iPhone.

Quickly search for a document using text, metadata or document name.

Create and Upload Content from
Wherever You Are

Business leaders and other “road warrior” employees are busy, and they don’t always have time to log onto a computer to send important files back to the home office. Laserfiche Mobile for iPhone allows these employees to securely—and instantly—upload confidential or time-sensitive files such as contracts, agreements and presentations to the Laserfiche repository, granting their colleagues immediate access to this important information.

  • Upload photos of documents directly from your iPhone.
  • Produce clean, OCRed text that is instantly searchable with advanced image processing features.
  • Eliminate the cost of scanning and indexing paper and electronic files.

Create new documents by capturing new images with the iPhone camera or selecting existing images from the photo library.

Prevent Bottlenecks in Business Processes

Business can’t wait just because a key decision maker is out of the office. Laserfiche Mobile for iPhone ensures that business processes don’t come to a halt when employees are travelling by allowing them to participate in workflows from wherever they are. For example, financial advisors use Laserfiche Mobile for iPhone to initiate client agreements while they’re offsite, store the agreements in Laserfiche and have them automatically routed to the appropriate managers for review and approval.

Participate in collaborative business processes from the road, including:

Participate in workflow automation processes by accessing metadata fields.

Provide Iron-clad Security from
Mobile Devices

Striking the right balance between mobility and security can be a challenge. From an ECM perspective, the advantage of mobile technology lies in its ability to make information more accessible. At the same time, however, it’s difficult to control mobile content that rests outside an organization’s IT governance structure. Laserfiche Mobile for iPhone gives you the best of both worlds by providing a solution that combines the flexibility of mobile devices with the iron-clad security and audit-proof compliance associated with the entire Laserfiche ECM suite.

  • Constantly monitor document access and retrieval.
  • Enforce standard operating procedures even when employees are out of the office.
  • Underpin your information governance strategy with security features including role-based authorization, access control and Active Directory authentication.

Maintain auditability over all system interactions, even if they take place on a mobile device.
