Other solutions won’t compare
Understanding what you need drives our improvement. We’re listening hard to customers
and have prioritized what’s most important to you – speed and accuracy.
Accuracy in comparison is everything. With Workshare 9.5 we’ve improved PDF comparison, including OCR. We’re also transforming the way you compare complex tables, making changes easier to understand. Even complex structures in tables can be compared accurately and displayed beautifully.
Workshare 9.5 is now faster than ever
We’ve got a quieter approach to licensing now that won’t interrupt your workflow. When the license is due to expire, we notify your administrator, rather than your end-user.
Speed is your focus for metadata cleaning. We no longer open documents to scrub them, which has made it 65% faster than before. And, comparing documents is 30% faster, because we’re changing the way the application loads.
