For law firms, a document comparison solution goes hand-in-hand with a metadata management solution. When you compare two versions of a contract for differences, you want to ensure that the final version is cleaned of Comments and Track Changes before it gets emailed to clients or external parties. You don’t want opposing counsel to see what your client is prepared to settle for in a case.
It, therefore, makes perfect sense for a law firm to look for a technology partner that has both in its product portfolio since they are likely to share similar user interfaces, integrations, and technologies. That's where we come in.
Document comparison with a difference
compareDocs compares documents natively - it doesn’t convert documents to a proprietary format before comparing. This results in a faster comparison as it doesn’t have to open the source document each time. It also retains formatting and styles while reducing the risk of document corruption.
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 (DMS) and Windows file systems, or simply drag-and-drop into compareDocs and click Compare. The output document can be a traditional Redline or a Track Changes document.
Metadata cleaning at sub-second speed
cleanDocs removes more than 100 metadata types from documents at sub-second speeds, eliminating bottlenecks and lost productivity. This blistering speed is achieved through the binary level and multi-thread processing.
cleanDocs is a hybrid solution, consisting of two modules - cleanDocs desktop and cleanDocs server. They can be deployed independently or together for a more comprehensive metadata management solution.
Complex legal workflows reduced to a single click
Here are just a couple of examples of how cleanDocs and compareDocs deal with complex legal workflows:
- compareDocs will compare two image-based PDF documents, mark them up as a Word Redline report, and output it as a Comparison Report
- cleanDocs will clean the document of metadata, convert it to PDF, and email it to the recipient
