Workshare Compare Server provides an easy solution to allow employees across the organization to accurately compare documents
San Francisco, CA (Vocus) September 29, 2010
Workshare, a leading provider of document collaboration software, today announces the release of Workshare Compare Server 5.2, a document comparison solution delivered from a centralized server for easy access across the organization. The software provides accurate document and PDF comparison to ensure accuracy and compliance in high-value documents.
This 5.2 version enables developers to write applications providing comprehensive document comparison from within the enterprise or web applications, and easily integrates into existing applications. And, with this software designed specifically as a server solution, document comparison tasks that have traditionally run on the desktop can now be easily accessed from anywhere.
Organizations which have already utilized Workshare Compare Server have found it provides important productivity and workflow improvements. For example, one company notes that it can be seamlessly integrated into other applications and makes it easy to compare Word to Word, Word to PDF or PDF to PDF all from within one browser and the approval document can be compared against any document on the local machine or within the network. In fact, by using Workshare Compare Server in conjunction with the company’s Enterprise Content Management solution, the company was able to eliminate the need to administer the in-house tool and enjoyed enhanced comparison service, making it easier to use and more accurate for users.
The software provides such enhancements as support for DOC, DOCX, RTF, PDF and HTML document formats for comparison and UNICODE compliance and features the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) platform. It uses an exposed application programming interface (API) which allows developers to write custom software that compares Word, Rich Text Format, PDF or HTML versions of documents and then produces one comparison document known as a “Redline” which describes the differences between the versions.
The API can be used by custom solutions that run on customers’ websites, internal networks or email systems. Applications can be developed in Java, C#, Borland Delphi, C++ and other languages to integrate Workshare Compare Server into the desktop or document management system (DMS).
“Workshare Compare Server provides an easy solution to allow employees across the organization to accurately compare documents,” explained Matthew Brown, Vice President of Marketing for Workshare. “With a server solution your entire workforce can benefit when working on high-value documents such as contracts and financial reports.”
