“This year, customers have been careful to select a reliable, cost-effective solution that creates efficiency, and adds value to their organization, “says Larry Phelps, Solbrekk’s vice president of sales. “Laserfiche has been a great fit because their enterprise content management software suite is open, easy to integrate, loaded with functionality and easy to use, reducing the complexities for IT staff and end-users, and frankly, this is exactly what our customers want.”
As a case in point, Phelps points to Solbrekk’s work for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, one of the largest newspapers in the United States. “It was a very challenging project,” Phelps explained that the company needed to replace a legacy imaging system and migrate massive databases from shared servers.
“As part of that task, Chad Brinkman, our senior network and integration engineer, deciphered their existing integrations and workflows and then implemented them in the new systems. All told, he integrated Laserfiche successfully with PeopleSoft®, RightFax® and Oracle® applications,” said Phelps. “These integrations will help the Star Tribune streamline key processes in accounts payable, human resources, travel and contracts. This project is a great example of how Laserfiche serves as a versatile and flexible foundation for enterprise solutions.”
Solbrekk’s other recent successes include Laserfiche deployments for IC System and the City of Shoreview, Minnesota. Looking ahead, Solbrekk plans to focus on delivering solutions to clients in the medical, local government and manufacturing fields, as well as developing enterprise-wide solutions for corporations of all sizes. Based in Golden Valley, Minnesota, Solbrekk, Inc., was formed in 2003 to bring together the combined knowledge and experience of four complementary businesses that had each been in business for a dozen years or more. The group included Software Tailors, Inc., Phelps’ former company, which had been a Laserfiche VAR since 1995. With 20 certified network engineers on staff, Solbrekk has quickly become one of the largest computer service companies in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Larry Phelps and Chad Brinkman lead the company’s electronic document management solutions team.
