LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)—January 19, 2011—Laserfiche has announced the winners of its annual Run Smarter Awards program, including Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB). Each year, Laserfiche honors organizations that succeed in promoting organizational agility through innovative use of Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM).

With 7,000 employees serving 50,000 students across 120 schools, HWDSB is forced to manage hundreds of new documents every day. When Mike Hiltz, HWDSB’s IT Director first learned of Laserfiche, he conducted an educational campaign to alert the district’s various departments of the benefits of Laserfiche ECM.

“Today, Business Services, the Director’s Office, IT Department and Facilities Department use Laserfiche extensively,” said Hiltz. “It’s a user-friendly ECM solution that’s scalable and flexible enough to customize to different departments’ needs.”

The district is currently developing an enterprise portal that will allow students, parents, teachers and other district employees to access a wealth of information about HWDSB. With its powerful workflow capabilities and comprehensive search functionality, Laserfiche is likely to play an important role in the portal’s success.

“Everyone’s heard of the paperless office,” said Hiltz. “Now, with Laserfiche, we’re thinking about how to create paperless classrooms, as well.”

Other 2010 Run Smarter winners include: Central District Health Department of Boise, ID; City of Maple Grove, MN; Dallas Associated Dermatologists; Durham County, NC; ECOM Atlantic; ESSAR Group; London Borough of Tower Hamlets; Long Beach Police Department; Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Indians; NE Metro Intermediate Schools; Pulte Mortgage; South Essex Partnership NHS Trust; Spire Investment Partners, LLC; Texas A&M University Kingsville; Virginia Port Authority; and Wythe County Community Hospital.
