DocsCorp releases next generation document comparison software: compareDocs 3.1

16 September 2008

DocsCorp, a global leader in PDF integration technology and workflow, announced today an upgrade release to its document comparison software-pdfDocs compareDocs 3.1.

compareDocs 3.1 adds support for Microsoft Office 2007 "docx" XML-based format which is very slowly becoming the default file format for office documents. The new version also includes better handling of tables, headers and footers; faster comparison; and integration with SaaS provider NetDocuments.

Accurate, fast and reliable-compareDocs integrates into MS Office applications including MS Outlook, document management systems (Interwoven, NetDocuments, Open Text and WORLDOX) to accurately and reliably compare two versions of a document for differences.

Commenting on the release, David Woolstencroft, Senior VP Sales and Marketing said that compareDocs 3.1 represented the next generation in document comparison software. "Our goal from the outset in developing this product was to provide clients with a comparison tool that not only delivered accuracy, reliability and speed but also enhanced integration and workflow. I believe the 3.1 release delivers on all counts."

"The compareDocs approach to document comparison and workflow is unique. Its easy-to-use interface lets you compare anything to anything, integrating seamlessly into the applications office professionals use every day-MS Word, Outlook and Adobe Reader. No more proprietary viewing technology; no more cutting and pasting between applications; no more time wasted! Instead, its leading-edge technology identifies changes in documents and outputs the changes directly to Word or PDF so that users can continue to work on the document. The result is a seamless, integrated workflow that delivers unprecedented levels of accuracy and efficiency," continued Woolstencroft.

"While there are a few document comparison solutions available that compare Word to Word, or PDF to PDF, there are no products on the market that allow you to 'compare apples with oranges' so to speak" says Woolstencroft. "With compareDocs there are no restrictions-you can compare anything to anything (Word to Word, PDF to PDF, Word to PDF, Word to anything). Equally, there are none that integrate into MS Word to the extent that compareDocs does. This is quite an achievement and one of which we at DocsCorp are very proud, concluded Woolstencroft."
