LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)—October 25, 2010—Laserfiche has filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court in Los Angeles, CV10-7843 JFW, against SAP America, Inc., SAP AG and SAP Global Marketing, Inc. for infringing Laserfiche’s Run Smarter® trademark.
“We are disappointed that SAP has been using our Run Smarter® trademark without permission, and we’ve been forced to file a lawsuit in response,” said Laserfiche Executive Vice President Chris Wacker.
Since 1987, Laserfiche has evolved from a custom software company into a leading provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software. Laserfiche has been praised by industry analyst firms such as IDC for helping organizations “address the majority of their document and records management issues effectively and within a shorter time frame than other large enterprise content management providers.”
“Laserfiche has been using our federally registered Run Smarter® trademark as the centerpiece of all our marketing campaigns since 2004,” said Tom Wayman, Vice President of Marketing at Laserfiche. “The trademark is synonymous with our brand, and has helped us grow our client base to more than 28,000 customer organizations around the world.”
Since 1987, Laserfiche® has used its Run Smarter® philosophy to create simple and elegant enterprise content management (ECM) solutions. More than 28,000 organizations worldwide—including federal, state and local government agencies and Fortune 1000 companies—use Laserfiche software to streamline document, records and business process management.
The Laserfiche ECM system is designed to give IT managers central control over their information infrastructure, including standards, security and auditing, while still offering business units the flexibility to respond quickly to changing conditions.
