Document imaging and management vendor LaserFiche is on the lookout for new resellers to handle "significant growth", according to its regional manager Australasia, Tim Dickinson.
LaserFiche develops software that enables documents and images to be scanned, indexed and then stored on a variety of database platforms. Documents can be retrieved using a full text search and modified using the software's OCR (optical character recognition) functionality.
Dickinson claims that because LaserFiche is built around a non-proprietary architecture it can be installed on just about any hardware device.
The LaserFiche family of products ranges from single-user standalone systems to networked enterprise environments. In the latter, LaserFiche uses n-tier technology, in which the server provides the processing power that enables authorised users to concurrently share files.
The software comes with a number of optional features, including the ability to distribute documents on a royalty-free CD via the Web or an intranet without the need for HTML coding, an interface that enables scanned documents to be sent by e-mail, and a snap-shot application to move any Windows document directly into LaserFiche.
LaserFiche also provides audit trails to track documents in the system and a developer's toolkit to integrate the software with other applications.
Dickinson said the company is interviewing potential authorised resellers to service various geographic regions. "The market is clearly expanding," he said. "There's just so much demand."
Dickinson claims authorised resellers receive considerable marketing and technical support, as well as "some of the best margins available".
