LONDON, ENGLAND, August 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Workshare today announced that it has been named a Gold Stevie Award winner in the 11th Annual International Business Awards. The company received recognition for Best New Product of the Year in the content management solution category with its collaboration application, Workshare Connect.
Workshare Connect bridges the gap between traditional and modern work styles. By extending legacy systems across mobile, desktop, and online environments, Workshare enables knowledge workers to share high-value content outside the firewall on any device - without the need to leave the security of Workshare's environment. Its seamless integrations with Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Document Management Systems (DMS) like Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, HP Worksite, EMC Documentum, and OpenText, helps to simplify collaboration while increasing productivity.
"Previously, legacy systems restricted employees to collaborate with internal users only, and external collaboration often meant employees were using unsecure, consumer-grade file sharing applications," said Anthony Foy, CEO of Workshare. "Workshare strikes the right balance by providing a solution that supports both the users' needs and IT's requirements. We're honored to be recognized by the International Business Awards for our ability to empower the next-generation worker, and their organization as a whole."
The International Business Awards are the world's premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide - public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small - are eligible to submit nominations. The 2014 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.
"We congratulate all of the Stevie winners in this year's IBAs," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "The quality of entries we receive improves every year. This year's judges were rewarded with the opportunity to review more than 3,500 stories of business achievement and innovation from around the world. We look forward to celebrating the winners' achievements in Paris on 10 October."
