Document management solutions heavyweight strengthens its bid to tackle the need for speed with its CEO and senior VP onboard this year.
Dubai’s Laserfiche is flaunting the benefits of its new Laserfiche Rio enterprise content management (ECM) system at GITEX Technology Week, backed by the presence of its key decision makers.
Laserfiche president and CEO Nien-Ling Wacker and senior vice president, Chris Wacker are attending the show and will present Laserfiche’s coveted Visionary Award to the Dubai Municipality, Saudi Arabian Airlines, and the Saudi Arabia General Organisation for Social Security.
The California-headquartered firm has returned to GITEX as such events allow vendors and customers to assemble to solve organisational challenges with the latest technologies under one roof, according to Wacker.
“We are extremely excited to share our innovative products, which are powerful, effective, and user friendly.”
The company, exhibiting with Beirut’s BMB Group, Riyadh’s Integrated Solutions for Business (ISB), Arabian Computer Supplies Co. (ARCOM) from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi’s Mazroui & Partners LLC and Kuwait United/KINKOS is promoting its Laserfiche 8 document management suite.
Other Laserfiche partners from Dubai exhibiting include Global Technology Services LLC in partnership with Oracle; Pixel Digital Systems LLC; and Solutions Middle East.
“Laserfiche 8 features a simpler business automation module that’s built on the Windows Workflow Foundation engine and offers greater interoperability with Office applications, particularly SharePoint. Its enhanced system architecture eases firewall configuration and improves performance," Wacker says.
The company is responding to the trend for enterprise content management (ECM).
“People are beginning to realise that it is possible to create autonomy within departments while maintaining central control.”
The new Rio system provides enterprises with 100-plus users with a full range of functionality, including workflow automation, web-based document management, audit trail tracking, and powerful capture tools.
Rio includes an unlimited number of Laserfiche servers and repositories, which organisations can use to support back ups, failover clusters, testing environments and multiple locations.
“Rio will help speed up the sales and implementation process for the customer,” explains Chris Wacker.
“To expand their systems, customers can simply purchase additional licenses, which eliminates long requisition processes and makes budgeting for an enterprise deployment much easier.”
“Our goal is to create solutions that are so user-friendly that IT staff thank us for making their lives easier,” comments Middle East Regional Manager Sean Tang.
Since 1987 Laserfiche has helped more than 25,000 organisations to streamline processes for managing documents and workflow.
