Annual Support helps subscribers preserve existing investments by providing 100% credit for software upgrades • Annual Support subscribers also receive free 24-hour FTP access to new Laserfiche releases as well as updated drivers. Laserfiche routinely issues new releases and updates every year. Running the most current version of your ECM guarantees the best possible system performance. • Most minor patches can be done by your administrator or we can remote in and apply them for you.
