    "Very Annoying to Recipient"

    September 20, 2009  |   By gfineman1

    Version: Workshare Professional 5.2

    Pros

    Does what it says it does

    Cons

    Counter productive to the revision process where there is document exchange.

    Summary

    Workshare Professional (it used to be called DeltaView) does what it says it will do, but is very expensive to be used just to see the difference between documenst. The real power (and the justification for its price) is that law firms use Workshare Professional to control the revision process. This vastly annoys the receiving lawyer since it is a more difficult way to work than Word Track Changes. I got so annoyed that I wrote a free Word macro to change the DeltaView markup into a real Word document. The macro is available as Freeware at http://www.list-search.com/utilities.html

    "Great product for document comparison !"

    December 12, 2007  |   By martinfaucher

    Version: Workshare Professional 5.1

    Pros

    I use Workshare Professional for legal document comparison. Much better than Word compare feature. It catches all changes and keep paragraph numbering and cleaner additions, deletion flags.

    Plan to use it with Microsoft Sharepoint in the future for document management and ensure we always work with latest master document within the team, for financial statements reviews iteration and related public company compliance.

    Cons

    Nothing yet ! Works well !
