PleaseTech announces the release of PleaseReview v5.0
Malmesbury, UK. July 16th, 2013
PleaseTech Ltd has released version 5.0 of PleaseReview, its advanced
collaborative review and co-authoring solution for Microsoft®
other document types. This major new release positions the company as the first
to respond to the needs of a growing mobile workforce with its offline tablet
PleaseReview allows multiple contributors to review and co-author the same copy
of the document at the same time with complete control over ‘who can do what to
where’. Control, reporting and metrics remain key distinguishing features.
PleaseReview’s collaborative capabilities ensure that document review is
accomplished quicker with fewer review cycles and significant time and cost
Enhancements included in this release, most of which are directly client driven,
Online/offline review for tablets – Microsoft Word documents
can now be reviewed offline on a tablet (Android or iPad) and any other device
with a modern (HTML5) browser. This means that documents can be downloaded
whilst online (incorporating any comments and proposed changes made on the
document until the moment of download), reviewed offline and then all changes
made to the document are uploaded to the master review when next connected.
High level feedback capability – making it possible to ask
questions and capture high level feedback on a document or document set (as
opposed to reviewing specific content). It is also possible to use this new
functionality to assist in team brainstorming by capturing the thoughts of
participants on a topic. This is the first phase of PleaseTech’s ‘Beyond Review’
strategy, leveraging PleaseReview to provide business process benefits beyond
simple document review.
A modernized user interface – making it even easier for
participants to use PleaseReview with the addition of large icons, a count-down
timer and, for Microsoft Word documents, a ‘paper-like’ look and feel.
User Types – now the functionality available in the
PleaseReview interface can be controlled depending on the user. This makes it
easy for PleaseReview to be used across an organization as it can be adapted to
suit the user. For example, an occasional, less confident reviewer would access
a simplified interface with reduced available functionality, whilst a regular
user with more sophisticated requirements would access the fully featured
Dave Cornwell, PleaseTech CEO, stated “PleaseReview supports the very real
challenges faced by organizations where the key business requirement of
delivering timely and quality documents can make all the difference.
“We’re confident that the enhancements included in this release will maintain
PleaseReview’s globally unique position as the most comprehensive collaborative
review and co-authoring solution available today, delivering both significant
time savings and a substantial return on investment.”
