LONG BEACH, CA (Laserfiche)—October 30, 2009—Laserfiche today announced that the Virginia Port Authority has selected Laserfiche to implement an enterprise content management solution that will involve digitizing administrative documents and records and setting up electronic administrative processes. Laserfiche was selected out of 28 vendors that had submitted proposals.
“The Laserfiche solution was selected because of its robust capabilities, which met the stringent requirements of the RFP,” said Carl Long, president and CEO of Unity Business Systems (UBS). UBS is the value-added Laserfiche reseller that submitted the proposal and will implement and oversee the Port project.
“We are pleased to hear that the Port of Virginia has selected Laserfiche as its solution for managing its extensive business processes,” said Laserfiche Senior Vice President of Business Development Chris Wacker. “We are confident that Unity Business Systems will implement the project quickly, smoothly and professionally for this busy Port.”
In 2007, the Port of Virginia handled 2.1 million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units). The Port Authority, which employees 140 people (85 police members and 55 administrative staff), was established in 1952 as a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia for the purpose of stimulating commerce in the ports of the Commonwealth, promoting the shipment of goods and cargoes through the ports, improving the navigable tidal waters within the Commonwealth, and in general to perform any act or function which may be useful in developing, improving, or increasing the commerce of the ports of the Commonwealth.
The Authority owns and is responsible for the operations and security of three marine terminals: Norfolk International Terminals (NIT), Portsmouth Marine Terminal (PMT), and Newport News Marine Terminal (NNMT), as well as an inland intermodal facility—the Virginia Inland Port (VIP) located in Front Royal, Virginia. These facilities primarily handle import and export containerized and break-bulk cargoes.
