Affinity bridges Laserfiche and third party applications with software that is easy to use and administer.

What is it?

Affinity adds automatic Laserfiche search, scan and import capabilities to most third party applications using a simple point-and-click configuration process. Affinity uses data from practically any web application, GUI screen, or XML file to perform Laserfiche searches and populate index fields.

How does it work?

With Affinity, text fields on third party application screens can be mapped to fields in a Laserfiche document template. With these capabilities, Affinity users can create a data sharing relationship between virtually any application and Laserfiche (including HR, medical records, school, CRM applications, and many more), reducing redundant data entry and providing a more complete range of search and reference information in both/all interfaces.

Affinity simplifies searching and scanning right out of the box, without any setup or programming, and lets users pick text right off of the screen to build searches or fill in template fields for Laserfiche documents.

What else can it do?

Laserfiche documents can even be opened in third party applications using the Affinity toolbar as a bridge. To open a Laserfiche document from another application, the user just clicks the search button on the Affinity desktop toolbar. Affinity automatically executes the search in Laserfiche using text present in the third party application.

Affinity reads field text in third party application to automatically execute searches for Laserfiche documents without the need to exit the third party application.

Affinity also supports mapping search and scan operations to keyboard shortcuts (hot keys) to provide even quicker access to documents.

Affinity includes a full-documented application programming interface (API) that is accessible from practically any development environment, including scripting languages like JavaScript and VBScript. Functions can be activated using ActiveX/COM or the command line. Examples from the API documentation can be pasted directly into a user’s code.

Affinity also provides powerful XML-based integration services. Your application simply generates the XML document, and Affinity does the rest. Tracking repository items, like template names and folders, is no longer required.

What are the benefits?

Affinity eliminates redundant data entry, creates cleaner and more thorough search metadata in Laserfiche and in third party applications and reduces document research time by allowing Laserfiche documents to be opened from third party applications.
