Litera Compare includes the ability to compare embedded objects and searchable PDF files, and is compatible with all Microsoft Windows operating systems and Office versions.

Litera Compare integrates with the entire Office suite, including Outlook, as well as all major document management systems, and the flexible installation and deployment options support any size organization.

Litera Compare Server

Work doesn’t stop when you are on the go, so your document comparison software shouldn’t either. Missing a small but important change simply isn’t an option, even when working on a laptop or tablet. That’s where Litera Compare Server comes in.

Litera Compare Server is a web service that performs server-side document comparison and exposes APIs to allow a range of client applications to exploit this functionality. This means the client won’t have to wait until you’re back in the office for an answer.

Whether hosted in the cloud or on-prem, Litera Compare Server can integrate within your existing programs on Mac or PC computers, tablets, and devices.
