Overall Satisfaction with Workshare 9

Workshare 9 is used daily by the entire law firm to remove all meta-data from Word documents sent as email attachments via Outlook. Workshare 9 is also used to accurately and easily create perfect comparisons of the latest version of a document to an earlier version.
  • Workshare 9 is easy to set up program that removes metadata from all word documents and all emails sent via Outlook It is a simple Add-in that is linked to one's Microsoft Outlook Program. Provides excellent security that all Metadata is removed and never available to the recipient.
  • Workshare 9's document comparison program is world class in terms of speed and accuracy, creating an easily red comparison documenmt that highlights deletions from, additions to and items relocated within the document.
  • It is easy to adjust the level of security that you want in your documents and in your email program
  • It allows you to directly place a document in a new email.
  • It allows you to convert a Word document to a PDF document (creating an Adobe PDF or if you elect a Workshare PDF
  • You need to be careful when using a PDF Filler to turn off (easily done by un-checking a box that pops up alongside the forwarding email) the Metadata removal, as it will empty everything from the PDF form that you just added.
  • Document Security is of paramount concern and Workshare 9 is a workhorse.
  • Accuracy of Document Comparison is also a a critically important task and it is done to perfection.
Workshare's predecessor program only handled document comparisons and did not remove meta data from documents. Workshare 9has take comparisons to the next level and its meta data removal provides a very necessary level of security that is a must in the legal industry.
Well Suited:
  • Meta Data Removal

Less Well Suited:
