This article is part two of a four part series focusing on implementing electronic document management systems (EDMS) that was written and submitted by Laserfiche. It states that “performing some type of needs analysis is the next step in preparing for an EDMS implementation.

Laserfiche at the Aquarium – By Craig Le Clair

Le Clair said Laserfiche takes a “less is more” philosophy and still focuses on eliminating file cabinets, easy of use and, most importantly — affordability.

This year, the company releases Laserfiche 8, which includes a powerful workflow engine and easily integrates with other mission-critical applications. He said, “The key to their success seems to be responsive support and taking care of the little things that help ECM adoption, such as synchronizing CD volumes or a simple integration with the GoldMine® contact management system. Their ‘code library’ has hundreds of these utilities that handle often overlooked but critical tasks.”

Faster, Easier, Cheaper: Technology and Communications Forecast

For Laserfiche, a Long Beach based company that specializes in data storage, retrieval and distribution, today’s high-speed networks play an integral role in the future of businesses of all types. “It’s going to be about access to information, of any type, from anywhere. We are moving toward it, and 2008 will see strides in that direction,” said Chris Wacker, Laserfiche senior vice president. “Right now, there’s a lack of market awareness that solutions do exist. The people who need it don’t always see that it’s available. But as information proliferates, the reason for its existence will become greater. Information is growing at a geometric rate, and the ability to access it, to catalog it, to manage it, becomes more necessary.”

Saving the World From Paper Tyranny – By Victoria Kim

Staff writer Victoria Kim said Nien-Ling Wacker’s passion for Laserfiche borders on the religious and that Nien-Ling “talks about a ‘dream’ that became a ‘movement.’ Many people ‘believe,’ but there are more to be brought out of the ‘dark age.’ Those who spread the word are ‘evangelists’ – otherwise known as customers.” Kim continues, “Laserfiche is no lifesaving vaccine or cure for social ills. It is software that allows for the scanning and indexing of documents and, by employing optical character recognition technology, enables users to search all the text on every page.” The way Wacker sees it, with Laserfiche she’s bettering human existence by freeing the office masses, not to mention the recycling bins. “One piece of paper is very easy to use, but a million pages is a problem. It becomes a black hole,” Wacker said.

Move Toward an EMR with Document Management – By Ken Congdon

Ken Congdon said that an electronic document management system can help address the cost and cultural barriers healthcare organizations face when transitioning to EMRs (electronic medical records). Early into his second term, President George W. Bush called for the nationwide adoption of universal EMRs by 2015. Most healthcare organizations seem to be on board with this mission and agree that widespread use of EMRs will reduce storage and recordkeeping costs, protect patient confidentiality,

and improve research and patient care. Mauricio Pinto director of healthcare solutions for Laserfiche explained that an ECM system will enhance an EMR initiative with content-specific features that aren’t part of most EMR products including automatic data capture and extraction, file format conversion, search capabilities, automated workflow, and audit trail reporting.
