Webinar - Content integrity throughout a workflow

In many workflows, it is critical that documents do not change or that requested changes are performed correctly. This webinar looks at a number of tools that help with comparing different versions of documents in a workflow, including:

  • callas pdfToolbox for comparison of PDF documents
  • Global Vision DocuProof and ArtProof for comparison in workflows where there is a mixture of text files, PDF files and scanned documents and where content consistency has to be maintained throughout all of these formats.
