Clearing Up Enterprise Content Management Gridlock

2 min read

Long Beach, CA – Laserfiche®, a leading provider of digital document and records management systems, announces the release of Laserfiche Rio™ (, the flexible, scalable and streamlined solution to the enterprise content management (ECM) challenge.

The ECM industry has been deluged with complex and difficult-to-implement systems that have been cobbled together from many different products,” said Laserfiche CEO Nien-Ling Wacker. “The time is right for an innovative solution that is easy to purchase, deploy and administer. Rio transcends product boundaries to unite document management, business process management and transparent records management in a single enterprise solution.”

With Rio, organizations simply purchase named user licenses which provide a full range of ECM functionality, including workflow automation, Web-based document management, audit trail tracking, optional DoD 5015.2-certified records management and powerful capture tools that unify content located in disparate systems and formats. Licenses range from $700 to $100 per user, based on the quantity purchased.

Rio also includes an unlimited number of Laserfiche servers and repositories, which organizations can use to support back ups, failover clusters, testing environments and multiple locations. To expand their systems, organizations simply purchase additional licenses, which eliminates long requisition processes and makes budgeting for an enterprise deployment much easier.

“We design our products to make complex systems simpler. Rio provides what enterprises have been looking for—an intuitive, easy-to-use ECM system that builds on their existing Microsoft infrastructure.”

We chose Rio because it really made sense,” said Frank Hagy, CIO of the Florida League of Cities. “Because we have locations in different parts of the state, Rio will help us streamline administration, add additional functionality and reduce our annual support costs. It’s a refreshing way to think about ECM.”

Rio is built on a Microsoft platform and uses Microsoft-standard tools, including Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins, Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and the .NET framework, to simplify system administration. Laserfiche Workflow, built on the Windows Workflow Foundation, helps organizations move beyond simple document routing to automate everyday tasks, optimize business processes and share information with a wide variety of applications. And a seamless integration with SharePoint® enables users to work with both paper and electronic documents from a uniform, user-friendly interface.

We design our products to make complex systems simpler,” said Wacker. “Rio provides what enterprises have been looking for—an intuitive, easy-to-use ECM system that builds on their existing Microsoft infrastructure.”
