Quick Fields 8 Released, A Document Imaging And Capture Front-End For The Laserfiche ECM Suite

Laserfiche recently announced the release of Quick Fields 8, a document imaging and capture front-end for the Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) product suite that represents a breakthrough in configurable forms processing for the enterprise.

"Establishing a capture and forms processing standard can unlock an impressive ROI," said Laserfiche Vice President of Product Management Tom Wayman. "Quick Fields 8 is tactically deployable, so each department can customize capture and image processing for their own forms, documents, and data. And because Quick Fields simplifies capture for a variety of content, IT departments easily improve adherence to enterprise compliance requirements."

To extend possibilities for integrating Quick Fields into existing business processes, IT staff can run custom processes on document components and return them to Quick Fields for further processing, use the included scripting kit to run custom C# and VB.NET scripts or exchange data with outside databases and applications.

"With the new scripting kit, Quick Fields 8 is even more powerful and compelling," said Bill Peyton of IP Digital, Inc., a systems integrator specializing in ECM deployments. "While Quick Fields 8 can do almost anything necessary for capture and forms processing right out of the box, with the scripting kit, it's now possible to quickly develop customizations to fit any organization's specific circumstances."

Quick Fields 8 also offers a range of new features, including a revamped user interface with movable panes, customizable toolbars and collapsible menus, to improve customization. Administrators can configure the exact fields operators need to see, in the format they prefer, to optimize processing and data entry speed. And with a new auto-annotation feature, document processing can include the automatic redaction of secure information, benefiting organizations that formerly couldn't distribute documents due to data security issues.

"Since 2003, Quick Fields has provided an edge over other capture programs by allowing reprocessing of archived documents," added Wayman. "This extraction, transformation and loading capability enable enterprises to mine their content for new insights by reprocessing forms and gathering new data."
