ANAHEIM, CA (Laserfiche) – October 10, 2009 – Today, Laserfiche will introduce PhotoDocs, a new document capture system, at the Financial Planning Association’s (FPA) National Conference in Anaheim, California. As Associate Sponsor of the event, Laserfiche will also present an educational session: “Beyond Paperless: Preparing for the Coming Compliance Tsunami.”
PhotoDocs, now included with Laserfiche 8, allows for document capture using a digital camera rather than a scanner. The solution contains advanced image processing features that produce clean, usable OCR text from camera images. And because it is able to remove extraneous detail, correct for line curvature, and deskew images, PhotoDocs is ideal for producing readable optical character recognition (OCR) text from digital photographs—particularly those of documents that are difficult to scan, such as book pages.
“With PhotoDocs, financial advisors will be able to capture client documents and other important information while at the client’s office or home, saving time and providing a higher service level,” noted Laserfiche Senior Vice President Chris Wacker. “Feedback from advisors on how they can use PhotoDocs has been very positive, and we’re looking forward to demonstrating those features at FPA Anaheim.”
Also at the conference, Timothy D. Welsh, CFP®, a consultant to Laserfiche, will present on the aftermath of the financial crisis and the implications for financial advisors. “The Wall Street meltdown and scandals will most likely result in full regulatory reform requiring increased audits, enhanced security, disaster recovery and business continuity, audit trail tracking and the ability to produce information on-demand,” said Welsh. He will show participants how to recover lost productivity, reduce overhead and streamline workflow through the implementation of Laserfiche Avante, an affordable solution for digital business process management.
