Everyone’s heard of it. Many are panicked because of the news coverage. We all know and lament the risk it poses to people, as with any disease, but there is another side to this one that may affect us all for a long time to come. The new coronavirus is causing a lot of disruption to businesses.
There is something you can do, if you are concerned. Virtualize your office. Let people work from home, at least for a while. Our partner, Air Desk Legal, already services many Prevail clients and they are experts in security and technology. They can virtualize your entire software environment, not just Prevail. Perhaps this is the time to consider it.
Contact our partner, Air Desk Legal, from our partner page. Give them a call to see what options they provide.
By the end of the year, Prevail v9 will be available. In October, we will announce the changes being made. This version, while internally referred to as “v9,” is actually version-less going forward. In future, when we add features or integrations, they will go live to everyone after testing. That means there is no more waiting years to see a new feature. We plan on rolling out 4-6 new features and integrations per year.
There will be some changes to how we price Prevail. Prevail v9 will require an annual support contract to use the new features, and to get any additional features added after initial release. This is necessary because, as we move toward a software-as-a-service model like most of the industry, the integrations cause us to constantly track changes to other code bases and quickly adapt when the partner software changes (so that it keeps working with Prevail).
We expect everyone will be very pleased with v9, which has more additions and enhancements than any previous version. Expect more details in October!
