Long Beach, CA (Oct 30, 2012)—Laserfiche today announced the launch of an enhanced integration with Granicus, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for government transparency, efficiency and citizen engagement. The integration provides government agencies the tools to seamlessly archive content between systems, making record creation, retention, compliance and transparency easier to manage.
“By integrating Granicus and Laserfiche, government agencies can leverage the power of two industry-leading solutions to manage the entire lifecycle of their public records, legislation and documents,” said Tom Spengler, CEO and Co-Founder of Granicus. “Our goal was to minimize the duplication of effort between multiple systems to deliver value to our customers.”
Granicus’ Legislative Management Suite, powered by Legistar®, integrates with the Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) system to centralize and simplify the way government staff manages file creation and retention. All of the data captured pre-meeting in Granicus can be automatically archived back into Laserfiche, eliminating the need for staff to duplicate work from one system to another.
“Government agencies of all sizes need a best-of-breed solution for agenda, document, records and business process management,” said Kimberly Samuelson, Director of Government Strategy at Laserfiche. “Together, Laserfiche and Granicus provide all the capabilities our customers need to cost-effectively increase the efficiency and transparency of citizen service delivery.”
Through the integration, Laserfiche offers its customers access to a powerful online research center to instantly track legislative actions and decisions. They also have full access to meeting calendars, agendas, minutes, supporting documentation and live and on-demand video. Granicus’ Legislative Management Suite is currently used by more than 18,000 government staff members to manage more than a million legislative files, including, ordinances, resolutions, budgets and licenses.
