DocsCorp, a global leader in document productivity software for enterprise content management systems, announced today that Linklaters, a leading global law firm, has deployed compareDocs to its global workforce of 5,000, replacing Workshare as its document comparison solution. Commenting on the decision to switch, Sue Hall, Director of Information Systems for Linklaters said: “The primary driver was the need to move document comparison beyond Word documents. Formats such as PDFs, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations are increasingly important to our lawyers and their clients." “The deployment took several months to complete, with DocsCorp regional support and R&D teams working together with Linklaters IT staff to install, test and rollout the compareDocs software. The system is already delivering against our objectives; our users are benefiting from a broadened set of document comparison features and at the same time software maintenance costs have been reduced.” Document comparison with a difference compareDocs’ leading-edge technology compares the difference between two documents with incredible accuracy and reliability across all document types to help authors and reviewers collaborate on business-critical documents. compareDocs integrates with business applications and systems to give unparalleled levels of efficiency in the document comparison process. In addition to Word-to-Word comparison, compareDocs provides law firms with PDF-to-PDF, as well as Word-to-PDF comparison. Linklaters also deployed OCR Server from DocsCorp, which integrates seamlessly with compareDocs to enable image PDFs to be compared without the need to OCR the document separately. This also allows users to compare any two supported document types, two PDFs for example, and output the comparison document in MS Word format.
