Laserfiche, a provider of document management solutions, announced that Australia’s Public Record Office Victoria has certified Laserfiche against all five specifications of the Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS) Standard.
With this certification, Laserfiche can offer tamper-proof security to guarantee electronic document integrity and digital signature support for both documents and briefcases.
“The VERS certification, which involves rigorous testing, has become the de facto standard for electronic data preservation,” said Tom Wayman, vice president of Product Strategy at Laserfiche, in a statement.
“With our software’s expanded functionality, Laserfiche continues to maintain our leadership in the records management space by providing a certified, compliant solution that is still easy to deploy, easy to administer and easy to use,” Wayman added.
Laserfiche Records Management Edition has already been certified as compliant with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) 5015.2 standard since 2003. Company officials say, in 2010, Laserfiche became the first records management provider to obtain DoD 5015.2 certification for its integration with SharePoint 2010.
The Laserfiche ECM system simplifies system administration. It gives IT managers central control over their information infrastructure, including standards, security and auditing. It also offers business units the flexibility to respond quickly to changing conditions.
Built on Microsoft (News - Alert) technologies to simplify system administration, the ECM supports the Microsoft SQL platform and features a seamless integration with Microsoft Office applications and a two-way integration with SharePoint.
“Ensuring that our software solutions meet the needs of our customers around the world has always been a top priority for Laserfiche,” said Sean Tang, vice president of International Business at Laserfiche International. “Achieving compliance with the VERS Standard, which has gained traction with government agencies across Australia, demonstrates our commitment to our growing Australian customer base.”
Laserfiche distributes its software through a worldwide network of value-added resellers (VARs) who customize the software according to clients’ individual needs. The Laserfiche VAR program has received the Five-Star Rating from Computer Reseller News/VARBusiness magazine.
