Laserfiche Empower 2020 continued February 13-14 with inspiring customer keynotes, our Run Smarter® Awards ceremony and more exciting class sessions. Read on to learn about the highlights of day three and day four of Empower 2020.

The Run Smarter® Awards

During the general session on Thursday, Laserfiche recognized organizations that have embraced the digital transformation journey to create innovative, empowered workplaces with the Run Smarter Awards. The Laserfiche Run Smarter Awards honor organizations that go beyond expectations to improve productivity, innovate processes and achieve exceptional results with Laserfiche.

This year’s winners have deployed technology to achieve workplace efficiency and make an impact in the lives of their teammates and their clients.

In addition to Laserfiche-selected Run Smarter honorees, we introduced the first-ever Customers’ Choice Award, recognizing the merits and achievements of New Caney Independent School District!

Laserfiche also honored two outstanding individuals who have made a unique impact in their workplaces and communities through innovative technology. City of Santa Monica CIO, Joseph Cevetello, was presented with the Nien-Ling Wacker Visionary Award, commending his work in the city driving tech innovation to improve citizen services and improve sustainability as a smart city.

“Laserfiche founder Nien-Ling Wacker was a pioneer and an inventor who could identify what people needed often before they could see it for themselves,” said Chris Wacker, CEO of Laserfiche. “Joseph shares her visionary outlook, and is a prime example of how government leaders can leverage technology to go beyond everyday operations to innovating citizen services.” Learn more about City of Santa Monica’s digital transformation story here.

Aparna Mazumdar, senior general manager at Sun Pharmaceuticals Limited, was presented with the Tom Wayman Leadership Award, recognizing her work leading an organization-wide digital transformation with Laserfiche.

Since implementing Laserfiche in 2003, Sun Pharma has moved from digitizing 20 million records over two years to becoming a more competitive, efficient organization with Laserfiche automation tools. “Our objective is to provide quality, affordable healthcare globally…[with Laserfiche] we can make a difference, and we can make a difference in a positive way.”
