Professional 9 Adoption Accelerates by 26%

September 1, 2015, LONDON, UKWorkshare today announced that adoption of its flagship product, Professional 9, has surged with a 26% month-on-month growth for 2015. The fast uptake of Professional 9 highlights the product’s significant productivity enhancements, which enable lawyers to address time pressures around document reviews and automate unbillable work.

The Professional 9 suite simplifies and speeds up the document review process between lawyers and their clients, with users reporting timesavings of up to 70% for document turnaround.

Users save minutes per document because they are automatically alerted that an email attachment has changed when it arrives in their inbox. In a single click, lawyers can easily compare the new document with the original, accept and reject changes, and apply house styles. Then intelligently review and securely share across all devices and platforms all from a single application.

Eduardo Snape, IT Director at Galindo, Arias & Lopez commented, “We evaluated other tools for the legal sector but were not confident that they could help enhance attorney productivity to the same degree as Workshare. We found that Workshare’s ease-of-use and deep integration with the tools that lawyers use everyday means that we have cut down our document review cycles by 70%.”

Anthony Foy, CEO at Workshare commented, “We are seeing increased momentum in the deployment of Professional 9 as law firms become more focused on the productivity of attorneys. With an increasing determination to reduce write-offs, firms are turning to applications that help minimize administrative overhead. Workshare Professional 9 automates time-consuming and sometimes, laborious tasks, so lawyers can focus on billable work. We’re excited to see that the benefits of this are already being realized by so many.”

Workshare serves 98% of the world’s largest law firms with leading firms such as Baker & McKenzie, DLA Piper, Bird & Bird, and Allen & Overy making up its impressive customer base. With its recent growth, Workshare adds a number of significant new customers to its roster including McCann Fitzgerald, Marks & Spencer plc, PepsiCo, Inc., Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP and Holland & Knight LLP.
