LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)—January 12, 2010—Laserfiche today announced the winners of its annual Run Smarter Awards program, including the Texas Medical Board. Each year, Laserfiche recognizes organizations that have been successful in solving their most pressing information management challenges through innovative use of Laserfiche technology.
“The ability to retrieve information on demand is critical to legal proceedings and the agency as a whole,” said Anthony Merritt, a systems analyst with the Texas Medical Board. “Prior to Laserfiche, our staff had boxes stacked up to the ceiling all around the office, just to have the appropriate documents on hand when they were needed. It was crazy. They knew there had to be a better way.”
The agency decided to move to electronic content management, but it started by simply uploading and storing content on a number of different file servers. When this system proved too haphazard, the agency installed a FileNet solution—which it soon outgrew.
According to Merritt, Laserfiche’s key difference was its customizability to meet the agency’s specific needs: “We’ve customized our system to cut costs dramatically by using less staff time, and ultimately create a better workflow for our agency.”
Merritt added, “Laserfiche nearly tripled our ability to capture and process complaint documents. With Laserfiche content management, we settle consumer complaints more quickly, allowing us to continually meet our legislative goals.”
Other 2010 Run Smarter winners include: Cambridge Financial Group; California’s Central Contra Costa Sanitary District; Collin County, TX; Elk River Police Department; LaPorte County, IN; Los Angeles County Office of Education; the city of Norfolk, VA; RMS; Spindleop MHMR Services; State of Guerrero, Mexico; and Texas A&M University.
