iPhone app provides on-the-go content management
Laserfiche recently announced the release of Laserfiche Mobile, an app for the iPhone that provides people on the go with the freedom to view and approve workplace documents, as well as capture and upload new documents with the iPhone camera.
"Laserfiche Mobile gives you the freedom to do everything you can do in your office from wherever you are, empowering you to work smarter and more efficiently," said Tom Wayman, Laserfiche Vice President of Product Strategy. "In this day and age, you shouldn't have to be tied to your office because all your information is locked away in paper files or the approvals you need are still based on paper processes."
Laserfiche Mobile takes advantage of the iPhone's touch screen, gesture recognition and high resolution interface to provide an immersive user experience. With Laserfiche Mobile, users can:
- Create and upload new content with the iPhone camera.
- Automatically crop, straighten and enhance captured information, with full text recognition.
- Copy, move, rename, download, e-mail, print or delete content.
- Browse for documents in a folder structure or search the entire repository.
- Participate in workflow automation processes by accessing metadata fields.
"Laserfiche Mobile significantly changes content capture," Wayman added. "For twenty-five years, Laserfiche has invested heavily in the development of innovative ways to capture information as quickly and efficiently as possible, with patented PhotoDocs photograph processing technology, lightweight Web interfaces and, now, an iPhone app that extends Laserfiche to one of today's most popular mobile devices."
Laserfiche Mobile, which includes a built-in demonstration, is available for free download from the Apple App Store. Laserfiche Mobile operates with Laserfiche Web Access as a part of Laserfiche Avante and Laserfiche Rio systems. To accept connections from Laserfiche Mobile, Laserfiche users can download the free add-on, Laserfiche Mobile Add-On, from the Laserfiche Support Site.
