February 4, 2015, LONDON, UKWorkshare today announced increased momentum in the legal sector with a staggering 2,000 firms adopting its latest product, Professional 9, in the last 90 days. The rapid adoption of Professional 9 has been the fastest growth the company has seen and is a significant milestone, which highlights the legal sector’s need for products that drive efficiencies across the entire document review cycle.

More than 2 million users rely on Workshare for comparison and collaboration including Baker & McKenzie, DLA Piper, Norton Rose Fulbright, and Bird & Bird. With Professional 9, lawyers are now able to compare documents on the go, accept and reject changes directly from the DeltaView redline, and instantly sync updates/documents to one central workspace. The suite’s productivity enhancing features also include a new Automatic Change Notification, which instantly notifies recipients of changes made to an attachment without having to open the email – letting lawyers focus on only the most time-pressing documents.

David Bullock, IT Director at Ward Hadaway commented, “We’re really impressed with the level of innovation delivered by Professional 9. In simplifying the review process, Professional 9 helps lawyers remove all daily admin associated with review processes, letting them get back to the practice of law and freeing up face-to-face time with clients.”

The success of Professional 9 follows Workshare recently being heralded as the most widely used product in the legal sector by ILTA’s Technology Survey, with this most recent release solidifying its market-leading position.

Anthony Foy, CEO at Workshare commented, “The momentum we’ve seen with Professional 9 speaks volumes and validates the need legal professionals have to dramatically improve efficiency. Our 15 years’ experience in the sector has enabled us to understand the challenges they face and focus on what really matters. We have focused on making Professional 9 the most efficient way to evolve high-value documents and the recent spike in adoption says we have got it right - DeltaView is back.”
