Workshare announces availability of latest version - Workshare 9.5

Higher speed, improved accuracy for users, and reduced upgrade burden for legal IT

London, (20 June 2017): Workshare, the high stakes document company, today announces the availability of their major new release. Designed to make upgrading easier for IT, users benefit from shorter document comparison times and vastly quicker metadata cleaning times.

The core comparison engine now better understands Word and PDF tables to compare them more accurately. Newly patented Advanced Table comparison technology precisely tracks changes in Word tables, even if the structure of the table has been altered. In PDF tables, comparison accuracy and readability of redlines has also been enhanced.

As well as benefitting users, performance improvements significantly reduce memory consumption on the desktop, so Workshare consumes less resource and loads faster. This is especially important for user metadata cleaning, which runs as an Outlook plug-in. Loading times are faster and there are fewer opportunities for conflicts.

An improved ‘quiet’ licensing system eliminates interruption for users and eases deployment for admins. There’s no need to uninstall previous versions of Workshare – a complete install runs on top of current deployments.

Barrie Hadfield, CTO of Workshare, said; “Workshare has prioritized and developed performance and accuracy improvements following intensive customer research, as part of our “Beautiful Basics” initiative. We’re innovating on our core document comparison and metadata cleaning with a laser focus on solving our customers’ problems while supporting their need for speed and accuracy.”

Customers with a valid term license or up-to-date support and maintenance with Workshare can upgrade for free. For a view of Workshare’s product roadmap, visit: www.workshare.com/product-roadmap
