compareDocs cloud released as a Windows 10 Universal app

DocsCorp has announced that its document comparison application, compareDocs, is now available as a Windows 10 Universal application.

compareDocs cloud enables law firms, corporate legal departments and anyone who needs to compare two versions of a document for changes to run a comparison on any Windows 10 compatible device: phone, laptop, desktop and Surface.

compareDocs cloud as a UWP application will empower document management professionals to deliver services to clients in a more flexible and agile manner as businesses continue to redefine the notion of the "office."

Commenting on the release, DocsCorp President and Co-founder, Dean Sappey stated "We are especially delighted to have worked closely with Microsoft to extend document comparison beyond the desktop as we continue to lead the industry in developing innovative products that allow people to work from anywhere on any device."

The compareDocs cloud user interface lets you compare two versions of a document for changes; Word to Word, PDF to PDF, and Word to PDF. The changes are output immediately to a Comparison Report showing all insertions and deletions in the content, headers/footers, footnotes, list numbers and tables. The Comparison Report can be marked up as a redline, or as a track changes document:

  • Redline – this is a static, non-editable mark-up that shows what has changed between the two versions.
  • Track changes – this is an interactive, or live document that allows you to continue working on the document. You can accept/reject the changes directly in the Comparison Report. This is a more efficient workflow.

compareDocs is also available as a Windows-based application in Standard (no DMS integration) and Pro (DMS integration) versions. compareDocs Pro integrates with leading Document Management Systems iManage, MS SharePoint, NetDocuments, OpenText eDOCS DM, ProLaw, and Worldox.

DocsCorp has also just released compareDocs cloud as an Office 365 Word Add-in, making document comparison available on a PC, Surface or iPad. Documents can be loaded into compareDocs cloud from cloud file storage systems such as OneDrive, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and iCloud.

compareDocs cloud is available from the Microsoft Store
