PowerPoint comparison is critical across sectors, such as consulting and professional services, where deadline-driven presentations have to be accurate. In fact, 85% of the Professional Services 250 worldwide use our desktop comparison applications, so we made the decision to extend this comparison functionality to our cloud collaboration platform. 

The new feature gives users a simple and fast way to compare PowerPoints, reducing the time taken to compare versions manually and eliminating the risks associated with sharing inaccurate information. Accessible through any browser-enabled device, including tablet and smart phones, this new feature allows users to identify changes. Changes such as text, hyperlinks, speaker notes, objects, and images – including slide backgrounds – are highlighted.

Platform users can select the file versions they wish to compare, and all changes are automatically displayed and highlighted side-by-side. Users also have access to Workshare’s powerful collaboration features so they can easily roll back to an earlier file version as needed, make tagged comments, or upload a new version. If a user makes comments or changes to a file, all other collaborators are instantly notified via email and can access the file from any device.

Now the increasingly mobile workforce can continue to work while on the go!
