Workshare Compare

At the root and core of our business is Workshare Compare, our comparison solution. Built on the original foundations of DeltaView and evolved over 16 years of working with business services professionals, Workshare Compare offers the fastest, most accurate way to compare two documents.

It is deployed as either a traditional Windows application on the desktop, or as a cloud-delivered app that can run inside browsers, mobile devices, PCs, or can be embedded in other document creation, sharing and management platforms.

What Solid Framework provides us

Solid Framework provides Workshare with the ability to convert PDF files to Word documents quickly and with a high degree of accuracy, which is essential to our solution. This gives our customers a great experience when it comes to comparing PDFs with other PDFs or with Word documents.

The Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capabilities from Solid Documents, leverage this ability by supporting comparisons of scanned PDF files.

Why we opted to use Solid Framework

We’ve been partners with Solid Documents for many years and have always found them to be great to work with. Their PDF to Word conversion capabilities are second to none. It was an easy choice.

How has this benefited us?

Solid Framework allows Workshare to compare PDFs with the highest levels of accuracy.

When we do encounter issues, the Solid Documents team are quick to respond and help find solutions. This lets us get on with what we want to do, rather than having to grapple with the technology.
