Compare old and new rules and regulations with Compare Suite

Comparing old and new rules and regulations to tell where the changes are and communicating it to subscribers. Identifying new and lost customers by comparing the customer-files.

N.E. Karkov, Journalist, k-com, Copenhagen

It is just great. It works with the file formats that I use, and the algorithm must be very clever. Besides it is very quick, it gives a good overview, and I can control many of the parameters or just take the factory settings as they are which is many cases are just as good. It is always exciting if a program has trouble with the Scandinavian characters. This one has not – and by the way all of the AKS programs that I know of also handle the Scandinavian characters well. I have used the support a couple of times, it is very quick and friendly.

Use Compare PDF to compare legal documents

Compare PDF as time saver:

We are comparing newly prepared legal documents in a series of similar transactions to the legal documents of the most recently completed transaction to save reading of almost 100 pages each time.

Business professional:  Barry C. Kaye, Coates International, Ltd., New Jersey.  Chief Financial Officer

Opinion about Compare PDF:

The software works extremely well. However, it is not clear what the different colors used to highlight the transactions mean. Sometimes the highlighted change is simply that the text move to the next line or the prior line and this should be signified in a way that distinguishes it from more important changes.

Use Compare Suite to review audits and contracts

Compare Suite helps IT manager:

Outstanding product, well worth the investment. It has saved countless hours of out auditor’s time looking at pages and pages of documents. Comparing two documents has never been easier! What used to take hours of reading one sentence at a time, in either separate windows, or two printed out documents, now takes just minutes. So not only do we save time, we save paper too!

Business professional: Jeff Mortenson, PWL Technology, Biloxi, MS. IT Manager analyst.

Use Compare Suite to find differences in drafted and finalized documents

Compare Suite helps Licensing Sales Specialists:

I am using Compare PDF to find differences in drafted and (automatically) finalised documents. Before Compare PDF it had to be done manually. Compare PDF saves me literally Hours of time and is more acurate.

Stephan Michels, Microsoft Deutschland GmbH, Germany, Licensing Sales Specialist.

Compare Suite as a good solution:

To find a good comparing solution for pdf is rather hard. Other documents like *.doc (Word), *.xls (Excel) etc. can easily be compared with often free tools available. PDF not. I tried several other tools, but Compare PDF is by far the best I found. It is easy to use, fast in processing and delivers outstanding results.

Use Compare Suite to quickly analyze legal texts before signing

Compare Suite Light helped to quickly analyze the two legal texts derived from two different sides for further signing.

Dmitry Baranov, Head of ATM service Department, Credit Bank of Moscow, Russia

Compare Suite Light is a convenient, fast and functional tool for the analysis of legal texts (contracts and supplemental agreements). Helps detect differences after edits of the counterparty, to minimize the probability of signing a contract in two different editions, and thus minimize the risk of signing agreements on unfavorable terms. Easy to use, easy to install. Export to file the comparison makes it easy and quick to make reports.

Great tool. Thanks

A comment from developers:

Dmitry, nice to see legal experts using our products. I believe that the demand for document compare tools was first from those who need to compare legal texts where just one word or just one comma may change the meaning.

These experts who use Word are normally happy with MS Word’s changes tracking feature, but I’m sure that you know all the tricks that different sides can do. I know that some people intentionally switch off change tracking to make the job of the opposite side harder.

I wonder how did you do an analysis of two legal texts derived from two different sides? As far as I can imagine these texts had nothing in common and thus it was almost impossible task for a compare tool to do a standard analysis. I suppose that you used “By Keywords” comparison to have a quick analysis of the keywords in the document that was clue to more detailed analysis.

By keywords compare method

As for reports, please make sure you have been using the latest version of Compare Suite, as reports are now available in Word format.

Finally, I think one feature might be really interesting for you. What do you do when you find a difference? I guess you want to comment it in some way to your counterparty. In MS Word you can do it easily, but what if the document is in PDF or other format. In this case you might find useful commenting function in Compare Suite.

Analysis of the large volumes of litigation materials

I use Compare Suite for database consolidation & optimization; analysis of large volumes of litigation materials.

Keith H. Rutman, Attorney at Law, San Diego, CA, USA.

Compare Suite is the only product I have been able to find that lets me efficiently analyse large volumes of litigation materials provided to me in many of my cases. I can sort and compare the materials with other sources to find overlaps or omissions quite easily. It also helps me cut down on duplicate file storage, as I have many different directories for many different clients and duplicating reference & research materials takes up unnecessary space. Most importantly, I have 100% confidence in the results.
