Reviewing your content in iManage Work 10 using Workshare Compare

In this article I will teach you how to integrate Litera’s Workshare Compare in iManage Work 10 environments and provide a clear description of its features.

Compare is a very easy add-on to install when implementing any Document Management System (DMS). Usually Compare is the technology that follows shortly after choosing a DMS, if it is not done at the same time. As most law firms and professional services firms, use and need WS Compare, it is a great time to cover it.

Did you know that using Workshare is the fastest and most accurate way to compare documents secured in iManage Work 10? All Workshare products are compatible with your iManage Work 10 solution, so you can use the market-leading comparison software integrated with Work 10.

About WS Compare

Workshare Compare accurately detects changes across any two documents in seconds. This market-leading document comparison solution integrates into your working life, whether you’re working from a desktop, the cloud, or on the go, so you never miss a beat. People collaborate on files everyday. Changes in files are hard, if not impossible to spot side by side. Failing to spot a change, even a minor one, can put your reputation at risk. But that is a thing of the past from now on, because with WorkShare Compare from Litera you can easily compare files on your computer, in your Document Management System (DMS) or as email attachment. This results in a streamline review process with instant insight and full control of changes.

Workshare Compare & iManage Work 10 integration

The integration for the desktop is relatively simple. When you install WS Compare, there is a section in the install where it asks which DMS you have and if you would like to configure it. So after selecting your DMS, e.g. iManage Work 10 it will automatically start configuring. You’re all set up now and just added a Workshare options to iManage work 10. Great!

Note: The process is slightly different for compare online and would need a project manager to enable that.
