Long Beach, CA, September 27, 2007– There has been an excited buzz around Laserfiche headquarters and VAR offices for the last year or so in anticipation of the new and innovative capabilities that Laserfiche will be offering with Version 8. Therefore, today was a celebratory day at Laserfiche as they announced that they had successfully fulfilled Department of Defense (DoD) 5015.2 Records Management Certification Requirements with Laserfiche 8.

The DoD—along with a variety of other government agencies—will only purchase records management applications that meet the core functionality requirements outlined in standard 5015.2. Because this certification involves such rigorous testing, it has become the de facto standard for records management applications.

Laserfiche Software Release Manager, Justin Pava said, “According to the DoD, this was one of the smoothest and issue-free certifications that they have seen in years. The Development team put in quite a lot of work to meet this milestone, and we congratulate them for it!”

The testing process involved tasks that are not only part of records management but of document management in general, such as importing documents, working with metadata, and using the Audit Trail module. The test officer also worked with some of the new functionality in Laserfiche 8, such as independent template fields. “The testing process lasted for four days and went very smoothly,” said Pava. “The test officer had no problem figuring out how to use the system and asked very few questions.”

To gather information for her report, the test officer looked at a number of modules, including Workflow, Web Access, WebLink, Quick Fields and Import Agent. Pava says the test officer was particularly impressed with the new version of Workflow and the numerous enhancements that Laserfiche has made over earlier versions.

According to Pava, the fact that Laserfiche meets the DoD’s standards for records storage, retention and destruction shows that Laserfiche has a well-designed, feature rich system that will help records managers in all industries do their jobs more effectively. “Just as important, the certification marks an important milestone in the development of Laserfiche 8, because it shows that Laserfiche 8 is as intuitive and easy-to-use as earlier versions of the software, yet can stand up to rigorous outside testing,” Pava said.

Laserfiche President & CEO, Nien-Ling Wacker said, “We have a great government user community and we are pleased to provide VARs with a competitive edge, and end users with more features and capabilities in line with our mission to help organizations run smarter, especially as technology evolves.”
