Laserfiche

Laserfiche is ideal for digitizing and streamlining the workplace. Business processes can be automated very quickly with the robust tools provided. The limitations will be about understanding the processes enough to automate them properly, which requires a collaboration of information technology with the business. Laserfiche is an enterprise-class solution requiring a robust infrastructure to support it including a scalable RDBMS back end like SQL-Server or Oracle, so smaller organizations might want to consider a cloud-hosted solution, rather than hosting it in-house. Additionally, best practices need to be put in place quickly or else the repository can easily become a mess. I would recommend professional services to help get started on the right footing. One item that Laserfiche could do better is providing a corporate portal solution. As the central repository, it is the de facto backend to a portal and would make sense to provide a UI. They do have a product called Discussions which provides a collaboration site, so they are on the right track. Finally, while they do offer an entry point into RPA, there are products that focus solely on that space and are far more sophisticated for managing bots.

Pros

Laserfiche

  • VT uses Laserfiche for document management of it's record construction documents of all it's structures both on and off campus. It is also used as an ftp site to share data too large to email.
  • Laserfiche is used by our University Planning and Design [UDC] department whenever an upcoming project is put out for bid, or for review during the design process. When used for the bidding process, the advertisement with the Invitation for Bid [IFB] is published using various media. Within the IFB is a link, a user name and a password with which interested bidders may use to view the bid docs [i.e., bid drawings, bid specs]. There is no longer the need to produce 35+ sets of paper drawings [blue prints] or specs, nor the expense of shipping them back and forth during the review process -- that is all done online. Because of this process, UDC has been able to meet the sustainability incentive programs [requirements] set forth by the Commonwealth of VA.
  • Professors on campus have used it as an FTP site for engineering students that need access to structural data on various assignments. The professors no longer have to produce pages and pages of drawings for the students -- now all they do is email their students a link, user name and password to access the data. The students appreciate Laserfiche because they no longer have to carry around a huge, rolled up set of drawings to complete their projects -- they just log in through the web portal and have all the data needed to complete their assignments; and they can do so 24/7.

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

Laserfiche

Laserfiche 9.0
Based on 1 answer
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.
