Laserfiche Announces Upgrade Offer for Acquired ECM Companies

As Autonomy considers HP’s multi-billion dollar buy-out offer, Laserfiche announces a trade-in program designed to help customers of acquired enterprise content management (ECM) vendors easily and cost-effectively upgrade to a full-featured—and fully supported—Laserfiche ECM system.

“Due to mergers and acquisitions, a lot of ECM customers aren’t being looked after,” said Chris Wacker, Executive Vice President at Laserfiche. “New releases aren’t being supported, so customers are stuck paying maintenance fees for outdated legacy systems that aren’t meeting their needs, but which they can’t afford to replace.”

Laserfiche’s trade-in program allows new customers to receive credit for the value of their existing ECM systems when converting from a competitor’s product to Laserfiche.

Laserfiche is a profitable company with a long track record of success in the ECM market. In a 2010 IDC Vendor Profile titled, “Laserfiche: A Company on the Move,” IDC states, “Laserfiche, a private company, has had several opportunities to be purchased. Conversations with senior management suggest that this is not the intent of [CEO Nien-Ling] Wacker, who seems to have made the decision long ago to continue as a viable private entity with the appropriate succession plans in place to keep the company's vision and strategy alive.”

According to IDC, “IDC's assessment of Laserfiche is that it provides a robust ECM offering in a simple yet elegant way… Laserfiche provides a complete offering without being overly complicated. Both its end-user functionality and its administrative capabilities can help organizations address the majority of their document and records management issues effectively and within a shorter time frame than other large enterprise content management providers.”
