Simple is Hard
It’s often been said that it takes a lot of hard work to make something simple. As a longtime technology user I would certainly agree. After all, we’ve seen our fair share of complex and convoluted user interfaces over the years.
Software should do complex tasks, but it shouldn’t be complex to use. This philosophy is well and truly embedded in DocsCorp’s intuitive design approach. Take the release of compareDocs 4, the latest iteration of its document comparison application. The intuitively simple user interface belies the power of the comparison engine under the hood and how it deals with complex comparison workflows.
An Intuitive and Simple User Interface
The compareDocs interface is modern, simple and intuitive.
Loading documents into the interface is made easy by multiple integration points. Add documents directly from MS Office, Outlook, leading Document Management Systems and Windows file systems, or simply drag and drop into compareDocs and compare — it’s that simple.
Compare Anything to Anything
compareDocs lets you compare Word to Word, PDF to PDF, Word to PDF, and scanned images to Word or PDF. Just drag the documents onto the interface, select your output settings and let compareDocs do the rest.
A Comparison Report is generated showing the differences between the documents. Choose to display changes as a traditional redline or marked up with Track Changes in a PDF document or in a Word document.
Complex Workflows Reduced to a Single Click
compareDocs provides single-click workflows to reduce complexity and inefficiencies in performing a particular task or process. compareDocs, for example, provides users with an “email comparison report as Word or PDF with source documents attached” workflow.
Or, you need to compare two PDFs. You load them into compareDocs. What you don’t know is that one of the PDFs is an image-based PDF. This will require the document to be OCR’ed before it can be compared. No need to worry, compareDocs automatically detects this and will OCR the PDF when you click the Compare button.
Or, try this one — compare two image-based PDF documents, marked up as a Word redline report output to PDF. Yes, compareDocs can perform this complex task with a single click.
