Likelihood to Recommend

Apple iCloud

iCloud is well suited for folks who are primarily working on the Apple platform. It is also a good choice for folks who are very concerned with privacy & security concerns around other platforms. Notes sync and multi-user sharing are good, especially for a basic/easy to use scenario. But for pro users, it doesn't come close to the Google Docs family.The photo backup is good for personal users, but storage is expensive in Apple's universe.

Laserfiche

There are many vertical markets that Laserfiche exceeds in. The top industries we see it working the best with is K-12 schools, higher education, city and state government, financial industry, and large non-for-profits. There are also key business process that we have had the best luck with streamlining, such as AP, AR, HR onboarding, and contract management.

Pros

Apple iCloud

  • Efficiency. Apple iCloud can be set up to automatically place your files for mobile access. I have needed to access a file from my office computer countless times and iCloud has made that possible.
  • Security. I know security is always an issue and I have never felt that any of my files have been compromised. I believe Apple has a reputation to uphold and works hard to maintain secure cloud-based storage.
  • Multi-platform. I use Apple iCloud on my devices, my personal Mac computer and my Windows based office computer. I love how I can save or retrieve a personal or work file at any time on any of my devices.

Laserfiche

  • Scans documents in color, pictures, maps- whatever. I can import a large construction drawing and later export it to email and send it across the world! Or, staff in another building can consult the drawings simply by accessing the database. The drawings are clear, legible and you can use the ZOOM feature to make it easier to read! Some of my drawings were done using CAD then saved to a pdf. I have not encountered file size problems and I have a lot of drawings!
  • You can SEARCH for a document by typing in key words. You can limit that SEARCH too by focusing in on a specific directory that you think a document may be archived in. For example, if I was looking to see when a project was approved for a grant, I could look in the GRANT folder and then search key words to find the document. Instead of SEARCHING the entire database. Makes finding a needle in the haystack a lot easier! And when you find your document, you can see which department archived it so if you have questions or need to consult the original file, you know who in your organization to ask.
  • Printing from Laserfiche is very easy and your document looks great! It doesn't have that 2nd/3rd generation look.

Cons

Apple iCloud

  • There's lack of configuration options for most iCloud services. You cannot tune things to your IT department's requirements often.
  • It would be nice to have unlimited iCloud Backup by default across all devices.
  • iCloud Mail needs improvement of UI/UX.

  • Laserfiche could revisit their licensing model. Our agency enjoys delivering our government documents to our citizens. We've had to reorganize our repository structure to take advantage of Laserfiche Portal. We'd like to have an internal and external portal. However, this solution is not cost effective.

It is a very necessary product if you are using Apple devices. If you are then you should utilize it.

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's easy, simple and cost-effective as compared to other cloud backup solutions that are being offered today. You get 5 Gb free to start and it's only $1 to upgrade to 50 Gb! Can't beat that when you can download iCloud from any platform to back up all your documents, pictures and music.

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.

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.

Easily accessible 24/7 so am able to complete courseware whenever time allows: Commute to work; waiting for friends or family; at night while relaxing [with a delicious glass of wine!]; whenever and wherever time and circumstances permit.Courseware is well written and presented in an easy to follow and understand format.

Alternatives Considered

Apple iCloud

Microsoft is incomplete and does not offer the all the features that iCloud does.Google offers a multiple alternatives where some are better and some are not, but they do not interact well together and you never know when Google is just going to kill off one of their services.Ultimately I love Apple hardware and its software works best with it. They do enough and have cool features and work together that accepting any shortcoming is palatable.

Laserfiche

Laserfiche is much faster and the optical character recognition is more accurate than Adobe Acrobat Capture. It took approximately 4 times as long to scan and store a document in Acrobat Capture as in Laserfiche. Reviewing every scan was essential in Adobe Acrobat Capture because when using monospaced fonts it put spaces in between each letter on many check and invoice numbers.

Return on Investment

Apple iCloud

  • Awesome for when I get a new device and just want to set it up like I had it before
  • Great for keeping data synced between all devices
  • Forces me to stay in the Apple ecosystem and use their apps even if there are better alternatives
Adam Lauer profile photo

Laserfiche

  • 1 to 2 day lead time for processing bills (accounts payable) versus 1 to 2 weeks with a paper process
  • Instant access to records between multiple locations versus interoffice and taking a week or more with patient information
