SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 30, 2012) - Granicus, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for government transparency, efficiency, and citizen engagement, today announced the launch of an enhanced integration with Laserfiche® enterprise content management (ECM) software. The integration provides government agencies the tools to seamlessly archive content between systems. As a result, record creation, retention, compliance, and transparency in the legislative process is easier to manage.
"By integrating Granicus and Laserfiche, government agencies can leverage the power of two industry-leading solutions to manage the entire lifecycle of their public records, legislation, and documents," said Tom Spengler, CEO and Co-Founder of Granicus. "Our goal was to minimize the duplication of effort between multiple systems. Additionally, when you combine Granicus and Laserfiche, the value becomes much greater for our customers."
Laserfiche and Granicus offer customers a unique integration to take their legislative and records management processes to the next level. The Laserfiche ECM system integrates with Granicus' Legislative Management Suite, powered by Legistar®, to centralize and simplify the way government staff manages file creation and retention. All of the data captured pre-meeting in Granicus can be automatically archived back into Laserfiche, eliminating the need for staff to duplicate work from one system to another.
"Government agencies of all sizes need a best-of-breed solution for agenda, document, records and business process management," said Kimberly Samuelson, Director of Government Strategy at Laserfiche. "Together, Laserfiche and Granicus provide all the capabilities our customers need to cost-effectively increase the efficiency and transparency of citizen service delivery."
