ANAHEIM, CA (Laserfiche)—October 12, 2010—Laserfiche (booth #1876) will exhibit its agile ECM solutions this week at the 2010 EDUCAUSE Conference in Anaheim, and talk to IT leaders about the benefits of adopting enterprise content management (ECM) as part of their IT infrastructure.

“By standardizing on an agile ECM system from Laserfiche, colleges and universities increase information accessibility and security, eliminate data silos and enable key stakeholders to make better-informed decisions,” said Brian LaPointe, vice president of strategic solutions at Laserfiche. “Agile ECM also gives academic institutions a flexible and secure way to automate business processes in every department.”

With hundreds of higher education customers around the world, Laserfiche has emerged as the leading ECM solution for enhancing efficiency and cutting costs across campus. For example:

  • Texas A&M’s Department of Entomology expected to receive an initial ROI of $54,000, but actually achieved an ROI of $272,000 within one year of implementing Laserfiche.
  • The University of Southern California has improved faculty records management. The Provost’s Office says, “Something that used to take ten minutes now takes a matter of seconds.”
  • The University of Utah has dramatically accelerated the disbursement of financial aid. According to the university, “In the past, it took us at least six weeks to process a student’s paperwork. Now we process those documents in two weeks.”

LaPointe notes that the benefits of Laserfiche extend across the institution because agile ECM tools can be configured locally yet controlled centrally. “Agile ECM gives individual departments the ability to configure local solutions while helping them to avoid using consultants, programmers and in-house IT staff for all but the most strategic ECM tasks.”

Laserfiche will demo its agile ECM solutions and hand out copies of a new report titled “ECM Agility for Higher Education” throughout the conference at booth #1876.
