World-class comparison: More about Compare

Since being first to market with the ground-breaking DeltaView technology, Workshare has honed and perfected document comparison software. 19 years of experience has led to the fastest, most accurate way to compare two documents - ever.

Compare with accuracy

When you compare two documents as part of a structured review, every change matters. Complete the process quickly and accurately, ensuring not the least little change is missed.

No matter how long or complex the content, you can navigate effortlessly between individual changes or focus on changes grouped by category – from simple punctuation to complex alteration of content that makes a material difference.

No need to reformat

Compare files from Outlook

Run a comparison from Outlook with Workshare 10. Use it to review Word, PDF, Excel and PowerPoint files.

Right-click on an email attachment and select “Compare with Workshare” to see a view of every change in your file.

You can also select “Compare” from the Workshare ribbon in Outlook. A dialog box opens with a list of attachments in the email selected. Choose the 2 files you want to review, and Workshare will quickly and accurately show you any differences.
