  • Produce licenses to deploy test, development and product systems with the Laserfiche Rio License Manager.
  • Update or modify metadata, security profiles, repository structure and file plan parameters through the same intuitive tools used for initial configuration.
  • Simplify integration with a comprehensive SDK, which includes pre-built merge modules, documentation, libraries (COM, .NET, and Java), and an ADO.NET provider.

  • Build a common, enterprise-wide ECM infrastructure that not only meets outside regulations, but also uses auditing and monitoring to incorporate internal controls.
  • Empower compliance officials to regularly review user activity, assess the effectiveness of internal control mechanisms and demonstrate regulatory compliance with Audit Trail, Laserfiche Rio’s built-in solution for security and compliance.
  • Maintain granular control over content with access control lists, folder filtering, security tags and privileges.
Completely Integrated Capture and Processing

  • Integrate document capture with document-driven business process automation via Laserfiche Quick Fields, the only production-level document capture and processing platform developed exclusively for a specific ECM system.
  • Extend business process to the point of capture, make information accessible immediately and audit information regardless of where it is in the capture process.
  • Bring capture to mobile workers with patented photo processing technology, an iPhone application and lightweight Web interfaces for mobile devices.

  • Scale easily from one hundred to hundreds of thousands of users. Named user licenses with significant volume discounts simplify the procurement process, eliminating long requisitions and making budgeting for an enterprise deployment much easier.
  • Integrate with your existing IT portfolio. As an open platform, Laserfiche Rio facilitates and encourages integration with line-of-business and legacy applications to solve transactional document problems and provide a rapid ROI.
  • Extend local flexibility. No ECM system will offer centralized control over content if it isn’t used. Laserfiche Rio is designed to provide centralization and standardization without compromising the flexibility and customization of information delivery required for defined business applications.
  • Configure, don’t customize. Configuration of Laserfiche Rio’s standardized solutions leverage existing administration platforms—including Microsoft skillsets—and offer a lower total cost of ownership.
  • Maintain control over your ECM environment. Support for virtualization, mirroring, test, development and other environments without the need to purchase additional software licenses puts you in complete control of system topology, high availability and recovery.
  • Grow with your organization. Because needs change, Laserfiche Rio maintains flexibility to reconfigure system attributes even after release to production—using the same intuitive tools used for initial setup.

More than 60 built-in activities help you create workflows quickly, or you can create and run custom Laserfiche Workflow activities with VB.NET or C# scripts. A graphical Workflow Designer enables you to create workflows by mapping your business process with an intuitive interface for testing, modifying and supporting Workflow activities. Laserfiche Workflow builds on the capabilities of Windows Workflow Foundation so you can extend its functionality to all your line-of-business applications.
