SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Laserfiche)—November 16, 2009—This week Laserfiche will present several business process management (BPM) technology workshops with Laserfiche distributor Ricoh Australia in Sydney and Melbourne, followed by its participation at the Financial Planning Association’s (FPA) National Conference in Melbourne (booth #58) on November 19-20, where it will demonstrate PhotoDocs, its new document capture system.

The BPM workshops are designed to show organizations how to automate business processes, streamline operations, lower overhead costs and increase business value. At FPA Australia, Laserfiche will demonstrate PhotoDocs, now included as part of the Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) suite. As a Silver Sponsor of the event, the company will also chair several educational sessions on business and practice management.

“While other developed countries have been hit hard by the recession, Australia’s economy has remained strong and vital,” said Linda Ding, Laserfiche Regional Manager for Australia. “Laserfiche ECM and BPM solutions increase efficiency and effectiveness, helping Australian companies to maintain their competitive edge.”

PhotoDocs allows for document capture using a digital camera rather than a scanner. The solution contains advanced image processing features that produce clean, usable optical character recognition (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 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 SVP 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 Australia.”

The FPA’s National Conference is the pre-eminent financial planning forum in the Asia Pacific Region. The Honorable Chris Bowen, MP, Minister for Financial Services, Superannuation and Corporate Law will open the Conference on Thursday, November 19, 2009.
