Laserfiche Mobile App – What are you missing?

Laserfiche 10.2.1 – Why aren’t you using it yet?



Any user that’s been working in Laserfiche a long time knows that there have been big changes in Laserfiche and the wider technology landscape since Laserfiche was first developed. Users have had to move from using Pervasive to SQL, workstations to laptops, CDs to DVDs and so on. Making the move from the thick client to mobile may be the next step in the progression of Laserfiche in your office. Laserfiche has been undergoing rapid progression in the mobile app over the last year. Have you been keeping up? And what have you missed?

A couple things to consider about Laserfiche Mobile, the Laserfiche Mobile server installation has to be installed and configured. Typically clients will install this on their web server. Unless you’re a Laserfiche Cloud user Laserfiche Mobile uses all the same architecture your existing Laserfiche Server uses, meaning Laserfiche Mobile doesn’t connect to any third-party app server. You’ll need a 64 bit server for this too.

Laserfiche mobile supports some very key aspects of Laserfiche:

  • Secure login to repository
  • Full-text search
  • Create folders & documents
  • Upload images & documents
  • Take pictures/scan and image cleanup
  • Apply index fields and auto populate from barcodes
  • Digital signature
  • Save documents & forms offline
  • Launch business processes and approve business processes

Don’t forget that if you have Rio, you already have Web Access & Laserfiche Mobile. If you’ve been using Avante for a while you may not have Web Access (and thereby not have Mobile). This can be added. If you’re using United or Team Mobile is not available.




It gets even better in Laserfiche’s 10.2.1 Mobile release with these new features.
