At the risk of stating the obvious, document comparison is all about change. Not just change in the actual documents but also change in the very technology that analyzes, marks up and outputs these changes. Consider how document comparison has evolved since the days when law firms physically marked up the differences between two documents with a red pen.
Document comparison evolution
compareDocs has taken document comparison another leap forward not only in terms of technology but also in philosophy. The compareDocs approach to document comparison and workflow is unique — it provides organizations with a seamless, integrated comparison workflow that delivers unprecedented levels of accuracy and efficiency.
An intuitive document comparison 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 Microsoft Office, Outlook, leading document management systems, and Windows file systems. Or, simply drag-and-drop into compareDocs and click Compare.
Extending the document comparison workflow
The compareDocs comparison engine does not convert the document to another format as part of the comparison process. Nor does is pollute your comparison document with proprietary and problematic styles.
Converting documents to another format means that document formatting will be lost. compareDocs maintains document integrity and fidelity at all times by working within the text layer only - not the presentation layer. Once the changes have been identified within the text layer, compareDocs outputs the detected changes directly into a new Word document. Since this new document is a live working Word document, it becomes the next version of the compared documents.
This new approach results in a more efficient document review process. There's no longer any need for proprietary viewing technology; reformatting comparison documents; retraining staff or wasting time.
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 into the interface, select your output settings and let compareDocs do the rest.
Complex document comparison workflows reduced to a single click
compareDocs provides single-click workflows to reduce complexity and inefficiencies. Users have an “email comparison report as Word or PDF with source documents attached” workflow. Additionally, compareDocs automatically detects image-based files and will OCR them within seconds.
