As more and more work is done outside of the office – whether it be in a café, on the couch, or in a different country – it's more important than ever that solutions move with it. Your work's local network may have the most sophisticated and advanced data breach prevention policies, but that won't be able to prevent cybersecurity threats if an employee sends an email over a dodgy WiFi connection while out-of-office.
The same goes for document comparison. When lawyers, accountants, and other professionals deal with contracts and sensitive business documents, they need to see every change made by a client or colleague. Before, you'd need to be sitting at your desk using powerful desktop applications to get a fast and accurate comparison. Now, thanks to Smart Integration with compareDocs, iManage Work 10 users can compare documents reliably anywhere, and anytime.
How compareDocs Smart Integration Works
Scenario one: Working from your Windows desktop machine, you select compare with compareDocs within iManage Work 10. A screen will pop up and ask if you'd like to do the comparison in the Desktop or cloud version of the application. Since you already have compareDocs installed locally, you choose Desktop.
Scenario two: You're on your iPad reading emails at night from the couch and a last-minute change to a contract comes through. To be sure you've seen all the changes made you log in to iManage Work 10 cloud and use the same compare with compareDocs function. Since you are working on a mobile device that is not compatible with compareDocs Desktop, the documents will be sent straight to compareDocs cloud. From there, the user can email, download, or view the comparison report in the browser.
With compareDocs Smart Integration in iManage Work 10, accurate and reliable document comparison is no longer limited to the desktop – it moves with you.
