12d Synergy

12d Synergy and its ability to handle all file types really suited the engineering industry.

Laserfiche

Laserfiche is perfect for businesses that need a place to appropriately store their documents digitally and want an environment to grow from. Adding Laserfiche Forms helps grow a business' ability to process their work and reach their customers easier. Laserfiche could be used for all sizes of businesses but may not be as worth it for very small businesses.

Pros

12d Synergy

  • Manages multiple files in a folder, while allowing file sharing (AutoCAD, xrefs, etc.)
  • Delivers HUGE (2, 3, or 5GB) files with minimal bandwidth
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Laserfiche

  • Electronic content management- it provides backup, versioning, access controls, retention policies, powerful search, metadata, and routing. It provides several facilities for importing scanning documents including OCR.
  • Business Process Automation via workflow. Built on Microsoft WWF technology, Laserfiche provides a developer studio (designer) for rapid, visual development. It contains dozens of pre-built objects to accomplish numerous tasks, including document routing, rules, and web API integrations.
  • Electronic Forms- an easy to use interface for creating input forms which can be routed, saved to the repository, and integrated into a workflow.
  • Robotic Process Automation- Laserfiche has put an emphasis on developing their RPA solution to be a serious player in this space. Their RPA bots can be easily integrated into business process automation (BPAs).

Cons

12d Synergy

  • 12d Synergy could provide additional analytical reporting on user behavior and usage out of the box.
  • Improved speeds when referencing shared files from other 12d model projects.
Travis March | TrustRadius Reviewer

Laserfiche

  • Quick Fields, the tool for automatically importing and processing scans by Zone OCR, is primitive and out of date. The user interface is terrible, and the program can behave in unexpected ways. The OCR module from Nuance has a high error rate.
  • Security and access rights are finely grained, and quite powerful, but there isn't a way to get a report of access rights and where they've been set. If a document repository is very large, and was not properly planned out and documented, untangling user rights issues can be a real mess.
  • Most of the modules are intuitive and easy to use. This is a double-edged sword. Forms and workflows are quick and easy to create, but it's possible for a non-programmer to create a workflow or forms process with hundreds of copy-pastes of the same activities where someone with some practical programming experience will create a loop of a dozen activities.

We plan on renewing Laserfiche for the coming year but also have been considering a scanning and document management solution that can be purchased from our new accounting system company, we are implementing the accounting system this year. It will be a couple years before we make a decision to stay with Laserfiche or change.

It has an intuitive design that feels very natural to any user that has ever used Outlook or Windows Explorer. There are multiple ways to perform every action in order to help users with various software experiences find the shortcuts and actions they seek quickly and effectively.

I am very satisfied with Laserfiche. I have found that certain larger jobs may are slow. This may also be related to our infrastructure environment. We have been able to tune Laserfiche to increase performance on larger jobs.

Performance, of course, is largely dependent on the underlying environment. Laserfiche does its part with multi-threading, taking advantage of multi-core servers on scanning, workflows, and bots. A SQL-Server back-end is suitable for small to medium-sized company, but may not scale to large, where Oracle would be the better choice. Workflows can be poorly written and perform recursive work slowing down the system. It's better to run batch type workflows at night when possible.

I have never had to wait for help from Laserfiche. If I cannot find the answer online, I can easily send an email to a customer support representative. I have always been helped the same day and my questions have always been resolved. The Empower conference is always a great learning opportunity and the online resources and webinars are top-notch.

Alternatives Considered

12d Synergy

Hands down prefer 12d Synergy. Bentley ProjectWise is overly complex, expensive and has a very cluttered interface.

Laserfiche is the leader in the ECM industry, and I believe will stand toe to toe with any competitor on the market. Not only is it on of the most advanced systems for an enterprise wide solution, but the cost is also very competitive. I also do not believe there is any competitor with an integrated forms module.

Return on Investment

12d Synergy

  • 12d Synergy has solved our multiple office syncing issues, adding the ability to have staff from remote offices collaborate together on projects.
  • Email saving used to be a nightmare, however, staff finds 12d Synergy's email saving easy to use and are able to search for saved emails quickly.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Laserfiche

  • Better customer service- if it's in laserfiche you can reproduce a document immediately.
  • Better use of office space as my old fashioned file cabinets that used to take up wall space have decreased in size as I use my Laserfiche filing system instead. Only when necessary is a 'hard copy' kept in a file cabinet such as legal documents, original certificates, permits, etc.
  • Employee empowerment- staff can research a particular subject by reviewing the files in laserfiche. Reading/skimming several pages is easier and you don't clutter your desk with old, dusty manila folders!
