Enterprise content management provider Laserfiche says demand for its products has been strong at this year's GITEX Technology Week as companies prepare themselves for an economic upturn.
"We are seeing positive signs in the market, especially in Dubai," says International Business Manager Sean Tang. "We see more and more people enquiring about technology to make sure that when the economy picks up they will be ready to be more efficient and to support the new activities that will be coming into the organisation."
Together with its Middle East partners, Laserfiche is showcasing the document imaging and capture front-end solution for the Laserfiche ECM product suite that captures and indexes unstructured content from paper forms, faxes, databases and software applications. "The overall feeling we have about this year's GITEX is that there is a lot more focus. People are enquiring about specific topics. Enterprise content management is a big thing, and business content management too," says Tang.
"People want to learn more about how Laserfiche can fit into an existing IT infrastructure, how we can help them automate a lot of processes and comply with a lot of the regulation out there," Tang adds.
Laserfiche unveiled the new Arabic version of Quick Fields 8 as part of its presence at the exhibition this year.
Demand for fully Arabised software that incorporates the Hijra calendar is especially strong from the government sector in Saudi Arabia. The products have also been popular with private companies in the Kingdom, Tang adds.
"People who work in a company may not be computer science majors. So we want to make the software intuitive and easy to use so that we improve the chances of success during the implementation process," he says.
The company has also announced it is geared to support new features for its Agile ECM framework using the enhanced capabilities of the upcoming release of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 to improve collaboration.
