We're excited to announce the launch of compareDocs cloud, a new web-hosted version of our market-leading document comparison software. Running on the Microsoft Azure platform, compareDocs cloud in Microsoft Office 365 enables users to compare Word and PDF documents on a PC desktop, Surface Pro or iPad.
Running as an Office add-in, compareDocs cloud is easy to deploy since nothing has to be installed on local machines – it all runs via the cloud. The service can be made available to users instantly and on all devices running Office 365. compareDocs cloud is available as an Office add-in for Word Online, Word for iPad and Word 2013 Service Pack 1 or later.
How does cloud-based document comparison work?
compareDocs cloud uses the same comparison engine as the compareDocs desktop version but offers even more functionality. Soon users will be able to compare image-based PDF documents using built-in OCR technology. Users can choose to run both desktop and cloud versions interchangeably for document comparison anywhere at any time.
