Workshare & Tikit take swipe at DocsCorp
Following on from a story in this week's Legal Technology Insider that DocsCorp had scored a number of new orders from UK law firms for its pdfDocs Desktop and compareDocs software – including from Mills & Reeve – both Workshare and their channel partner Tikit have been in touch to say “Oi !”
Workshare emailed in to say… “March’s LTi claims a ‘raft of new law firm wins’ for Docscorp. No details are provided what products were sold but the implication is they include document comparison. We feel obliged to point out that some of the firms mentioned have actually renewed their Workshare licenses and even looking to purchase more. We hear that one of the so called Docscorp ‘wins’ in a larger account was for only 4, yes 4 seats. Four of the ‘wins’ have less than 100 lawyers in total. Since the previous public announcement of a Docscorp win (March’09) Workshare has won or renewed over 20,000 licenses in the UK alone. Now that really is worth shouting about.
And Tikit emailed in to say… I read that Docsorp have now sold their comparison software to Mills & Reeve – this isn’t the case. M&R have bought a grand total of 4 licenses of JUST the PDF software and in fact just renewed Workshare. I have to admire their spirit though!
