WordRake Holdings Launches WordRake 2, the Next Generation of Its Revolutionary Professional Editing Software

Today, technology company WordRake Holdings, LLC announced official release of WordRake 2, the new version of its popular editing software for professionals. A major leap ahead in capability and compatibility, WordRake 2 will benefit the company’s large client base, which now includes thousands of law firms, corporations, government agencies, and universities.

Awarded six patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, WordRake® editing software is an add-in to Microsoft Word that “rakes” through documents, providing edits for clearer, more concise language. In one minute, WordRake 2 can edit 25 pages and suggest 200-300 improvements.

WordRake 2 Highlights:

  1. Advanced Editing Improvements, including increased accuracy, more suggestions per page, and millions of new edits.
  2. Expanded Compatibility with Microsoft Windows and Office, including any version of Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 2008 Server, or 2012 Server, combined with any version of Word 2007, 2010, or 2013.
  3. Redesigned and Optimized User Interface, streamlined for intuitiveness, convenience, and speed.
  4. Expanded Enterprise Flexibility, effortlessly installing on any physical or virtualized network environment while eliminating manual license key activation.

Writing in the American Bar Association’s Law Practice Magazine, CPA George Leloudis remarked, “WordRake is perfect for all professionals who want their writing to be less verbose and more persuasive. I raked a 25-page operating agreement in 30 seconds, resulting in 60 insertions and 140 deletions.”

Prior to its release, WordRake 2 was beta-tested by a large sample of current customers and new users, several of whom credited WordRake 2 with making them and their colleagues “much better writers.” One said, “I like the comfort of knowing a second set of qualified ‘eyes’ is looking at my work and providing valuable suggestions for improvement.” Another noted, “By making edits automatically, WordRake actually teaches you how to become a better writer.”

According to WordRake COO, Scott Johns, “WordRake has continued to grow robustly since our founding in 2012. In 2013, annual revenue grew more than 500%. With recent dramatic expansion in WordRake Enterprise deployments, Q1 2014 revenue has already surpassed all revenue for 2013. People will like WordRake 2 because it achieves an even higher level of precision and effectiveness that will help everyone tighten their writing. And with universal compatibility covering any version of Windows since Windows XP, and any version of Word since Word 2007, it has become an indispensable tool for all professionals.”
