Pros: One of the top aspects of this software is that in integrates with the DMS we are using (iManage Work), allowing you to open and save documents and comparisons directly from its repository without extra clicking, exporting or importing documents and the related waste of time. It is also usually pretty fast and accurate in comparisons.

Cons: occasionally we have encontered a few bugs, which then get cleared out in some newer release. this might take a while. Some pdfs might make the software crash, we have seen this sometimes. Although of course this happen rarely in comparison to the amount of documents we are processing monthly.

Overall: Quick word document comparison, integrated with iManage Work. Comparing huge documents with few edits can be done in minutes with this software, and saves valuable time.

Pros: East to set up metadata removal from all word documents and all emails via an Outlook Add-in.

Provides excellent security that all Metadata is removed and never available to the recipient. The document comparison program is world class in terms of peed and accuracy.

Cons: You need to be careful when using a PDF Filler to turn off (easily done by un-checking a box that pops up alongside the forwarding email) the Metadata removal, as it will empty everything from the PDF form that you just added

Overall: Confidence that no metadata is leaving my office and the ability to always be able to compare new versions fo contracts to see everything that was added and deleted from the last version

Pros: Has been very easy for our user to use and compare documents quick and easy to understand the compare summaries.

Cons: We have had issues with the install and the licensing keys from the vendor. A Lot of the times we have had to go into the registry and remove or rename the Workshare folder for the license to work.

Pros: Functionalities. Ease of use. Diverse amount of options/tools.

Cons: It can be buggy and take a long time to run certain compares.

Overall: I use Workshare in a lot of capacities - whether its track changes, compare docs, or scrubbing docs. Within itself - this is a great product as it serves many uses. However I've had some trouble with incorporating it into my Microsoft Office 2013 suite in conjunction with other apps.

Recommendations to other buyers: When used properly - great product.

Pros: Users seem to like the overall usability of the software. Files and compares documents with an ease that most users seem very comfortable with. It has a good integration with imanage and outlook to help more streamline work.

Cons: It is not without its flaws, and, at times, it seems to be many. We have had several releases that have severely broken certain functionality. The support has been good overall, but it isn't always the smoothest, as we have been told before "this issue is addressed in a future release, you'll have to get that."

Overall: File and comparison software for documentation. Has add-ins and integration for many other programs including imanage and office

Pros: It's been around, so some change-resistant users will adhere to it.

Cons: Exceedingly slow and feature-poor software. Uses ancient technology under the hood, which makes it exceedingly cumbersome.

Overall: Money for their marketing budget would have better employed in R&D. The old technology they use prevents them from properly innovating, leaving them in the dust by their competitors.
