Workshare, a leading provider of secure enterprise file sharing and collaboration applications, announced today that it has entered into an $8.4 million credit facility with the Technology Finance Division of Wells Fargo Capital Finance, part of AA-rated Wells Fargo Bank.

Workshare will use the facility to accelerate the development of its enterprise-grade file sharing and collaboration product offerings for cloud, desktop, and mobile channels.

Workshare is used by more than 2 million knowledge workers, from over 62% of the Fortune 1000, representing semi-regulated and highly regulated sectors such as legal and professional services, banking and finance, life sciences, and healthcare to securely create, share, and collaborate on high-value content.

“As this sector continues to evolve, companies will only succeed if they address users’ needs for simplicity and ease of use while providing IT groups with complete control of their organizations’ content,” said Steven Osborne, Business Development Officer and Director of the U.K. Technology Finance Team at Wells Fargo Capital Finance. “Our tech lending team has a deep understanding of the software sector and were impressed by Workshare’s business model, which boasts an established recurring revenue model, solid customer base, and high customer-retention rates.

We are proud to work with such a professional and experienced tech lending team that understands our vision and business model, as well as Torch Partners who have supported the process. This funding will allow us to continue to develop and provide innovative and highly secure enterprise collaboration offerings that exceed both IT and user needs.”
