Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

Laserfiche

At its core, Laserfiche replaces paper, and any process where paper documents are printed, filled in, passed around, and stored is perfect for Laserfiche. While expensive, Laserfiche can provide a cost savings by replacing printers, copiers, scanners, paper, ink, and tasks that involve repetitious paper shuffling. It also does a good job of integrating with other systems through the workflow tool. It's not meant to replace purpose built software. You can't replace an accounting system or EMR with Laserfiche, though you can use laserfiche to store long term records from those systems, and automate paper based processes coming from those systems.

Pros

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.

  • I feel the biggest strength of the product is the end user usability. The Laserfiche product is very familiar to what people are used to when opening documents, and also very simple to learn how to search and use other functions.
  • Laserfiche is very easy to implement. There can be more technical things done with coding and scripting, but for the most part of all of the basics are simple and wizard driven.
  • The cost of the product. Laserfiche is scalable and affordable for any company size. We have 5 employee offices and up to 500 employee offices as customers.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • The could have better options for read only users, the minimum option for read only users is 200.
  • More competitive material of why Laserfiche is better than the other products out there.
  • They could use a more robust capture engine that could be used for unstructured documents.

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.

Good overall. Some inquires could not be resolved or they were pushed to the next release which made it difficult at times to figure out a work around, but it was great to know that they listen to their clients and are willing to enhance the product as requested.

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Laserfiche solved our original government document retention concerns. Collin County has integrated Laserfiche retention rules with our Criminal Integrated Justice System for closed cases. We have also integrated Laserfiche with our Property Tax System. We are able to process and deposit tax checks within hours instead of days. The process alone has earned Collin County several million dollars in interest.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.
Pamela Harris profile photo
  • We originally purchased Laserfiche to solve our retention issues. We learned very quickly that our users enjoyed the speed and ease of use of the Laserfiche product. Document retention became an afterthought.
  • We let our existing users on-board other departments. Instead of lengthy interviews, departmental needs assessments and outreach, we would typically receive departmental requests to on-board Laserfiche. Our customers are our best sales staff.
  • We actually have a ROI tool that compares physical document retrieval (staff time, location, delivery time) to Laserfiche retrieval. The outcomes are time saved in dollars. We used this tool to support funding for a few high-end scanners for our Tax Department.
