LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)—January 12, 2010—Laserfiche today announced the winners of its annual Run Smarter Awards program, including Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC). Each year, Laserfiche recognizes organizations that have been successful in solving their most pressing information management challenges through innovative use of Laserfiche technology.
In early 2008, Dennis Raulie, manager of Administrative Computing Technology Services at TAMU-CC, recognized that the university had outgrown its existing document management system and selected a Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) solution to ensure compliance with the university’s records management retention schedules and decrease the cost of handling paper.
To get the most out of its new ECM system, TAMU-CC created a “Report Upload Bifurcation Engine” (R.U.B.E.), which processes continuous report files, splits them into individual reportlets and distributes them into a virtual staging area where Laserfiche Quick Fields reads the data, Zone OCRs the documents and routes the information into the proper folders within Laserfiche.
After reviewing the areas that could be most improved in the shortest amount of time, TAMU-CC focused on:
- Streamlining its BPP/FAMIS report distribution process, saving thousands of sheets of paper (between one and two reams) each day.
- Assisting the accounting department, which was a month behind in its filing because it needed to process hundreds of data forms a day. With Laserfiche, the backlog has been eliminated because everything is done within minutes.
In the future, TAMU-CC plans to automate and streamline business process management using Laserfiche Workflow.
Other 2010 Run Smarter winners include: Cambridge Financial Group; California’s Central Contra Costa Sanitary District; Collin County, TX; Minnesota’s Elk River Police Department; LaPorte County, IN; Los Angeles County Office of Education; the city of Norfolk, VA; RMS; State of Guerrero, Mexico; Spindletop MHMR Services; and the Texas Medical Board.
