Integration Tools

Laserfiche’s agile infrastructure allows for practically endless possibilities to bring added value to you content management platform through Laserfiche integration software.

Laserfiche Connector

Laserfiche Connector provides a streamlined experience for integrating Laserfiche with line of business applications such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Laserfiche Connector integrates easily through user-defined hotkeys and embedded icons.

Laserfiche Connector allows:

  • Searching the Laserfiche repository based on fields from third-party applications such as CRM and ERP systems. Both basic and advanced searching are supported. If only one result is found, the document will automatically open in the Laserfiche Client, Laserfiche Web Access or Laserfiche WebLink.
  • Launching Laserfiche Scanning and automatically populating metadata for the scanned documents with information from a third-party application.
  • Connecting two applications by allowing one of them to start the other (including the ability to pass parameters between them).
  • Choosing whether any of the above actions are activated from a keyboard shortcut, a button embedded in the application’s title bar, or both.



Affinity brings the power of Laserfiche document management to the applications you use most. Document searches can be reduced to a single click of a button. New documents can be added to your Laserfiche repository without manually entering template field values, file names, or folder locations. Affinity truly makes Laserfiche feel like part of your business software.

The best part about Affinity is its simplicity. Laserfiche functionality can be added to most application screens within minutes – no programming required.

Affinity now includes a search add-in for MS Word and MS Excel that does a full text search for Laserfiche documents and can be enabled by the user.

Ratchet X




When an organization implements a document management system, the plan is always ambitious. Get the software in house, design the filing schemes and integrate the document repository with every existing system that could benefit from document management. But then reality sets in…

  • How do those existing applications get integrated?
  • Is it even possible to integrate those applications?
  • How long will it take?
  • How much will it cost?

In the end, most organizations integrate only the most mission critical of systems with the new document management system. That’s unfortunate because the more applications that get integrated, the greater the productivity increases across the organization and the better the return on that investment.

However, if you are a Laserfiche user, Ratchet-X is your integration solution. Ratchet-X is not a replacement for the Laserfiche API. Rather, it’s an innovative supplement, that allows Laserfiche users to integrate more of their applications with its document repository without having to dive into the details of the Laserfiche API or modify existing systems. Ratchet-X allows Laserfiche users to link application screen fields to Laserfiche so one can quickly and easily submit or retrieve documents from Laserfiche repositories or jump to related records in line of business applications from the Laserfiche client. And the best part about Ratchet-X for is that these integrations are achieved without you having to modify your existing application in any way. No code changes, cooperation from the vendor or working with existing system APIs.

  • Link images and index data stored in Laserfiche back to records in line of business systems.
  • Create sophisticated application automations for multi-application integrations.
  • Populate electronic forms with data in Laserfiche or line of business applications.
