Though it might seem that all of our development attention is focussed on the new Version 8, this could not be further from the truth.

As such, we have been concurrently continuing our development and support of Version 7.5.75+.
Combining both the Viewpoint July and October releases sees more than 200 enhancements being added to our solutions. Below are just a few examples of how Viewpoint is constantly evolving and improving its solutions, to ensure that it remains the leading entity management solution used by professional practitioners the world over:
