Long Beach opts for new ECM solution
The city of Long Beach, Calif., has chosen a new enterprise content management solution to replace disparate systems in the city records, police and housing departments.
Curtis Tani, director of technology services for the city, says, “We selected Laserfiche to create more consistency, efficiency and transparency, while saving the city thousands of dollars in equipment and maintenance fees.”
City Manager Pat West says, “Laserfiche is well known as an ideal electronic document management solution for city, county, state and federal government, because it easily expands and adapts to the technological and human factor needs of various departments while providing central control that is needed to ensure accountability. Our goal is to virtualize and streamline the access and flow of records and information within the city, while ensuring security. We will also reduce our carbon footprint eliminating paper-intense processes.”
According to a press release from Laserfiche, its ECM system gives IT managers central control over their information infrastructure, including standards, security and auditing, while still offering business units the flexibility to respond quickly to changing conditions.
The product suite supports Microsoft SQL and Oracle platforms, and features seamless integration with Microsoft Office applications and two-way integration with SharePoint.
