Companies mentioned in this article: Workshare

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ILTA CONFERENCE -- Workshare today announced the launch of its next-generation application, Professional 9, which remasters DeltaView to allow legal professionals to work at the pace demanded by their business, yet with complete precision and accuracy. Using the intuitive application, users benefit from dramatically faster review cycles, increased accuracy, and simple collaboration from anywhere, and any device. For legal teams needing to be productive on the move, Professional 9 helps them to reinvent the way they work to remain competitive.

Professional 9 introduces new interactive features that enable legal professionals to work the way they want, being able to review and accurately compare and identify changes to a document, from their desktop, webmail or mobile device. Using a new “accept or reject” feature, users will for the first time be able to apply the changes they want directly from within the DeltaView – a significant development for the review and collaboration market.

Professional 9 also tightly integrates with Workshare’s Connect application, providing a secure online workspace for synchronizing content, sharing files, and collaboration. For semi-regulated and regulated markets that require high levels of security, Professional 9 and Connect enable users to share documents directly from the enterprise content management or document management system, and via policy enforcement, ensure all sensitive data is removed before a document is shared externally. For IT groups, being able to track and control activity around a document is a major benefit of Professional 9.

Anthony Foy, CEO at Workshare commented, “The launch of Professional 9 reaffirms Workshare’s commitment to delivering innovative solutions to the legal sector. The way legal professionals work and interact is changing rapidly with the need for more efficient processes, greater collaboration, and data control for IT. We’ve applied our 14 years of experience in the legal sector to develop the market’s fastest and most integrated application for comparison, data protection, and control, meeting the requirement of modern legal professionals to work the way they want.”

Workshare Professional 9 includes the following enhancements:

  • Connect - Enterprise file sharing, sync and collaboration features enabling users to collaborate easily from anywhere and any device
  • Compare - Simple, and faster comparison to automatically view changes to a document. Accept or reject changes directly from the DeltaView with the option to sync or share the updated version to speed up multi-party review processes
  • Protect – Set policies to identify sensitive data and the option to remove it from documents before they are shared, to eliminate data loss
  • Light install and minimal add-ins – Reduced add-ins from 15 to 3, enabling IT groups to easily and quickly implement Workshare Professional 9 across the organization
