The smartwork solutions GmbH developed SMASHDOCs as a web application for easily and quickly writing and reviewing documents within or between enterprises. All changes are tracked in one single version of a document instead of creating multiple versions. With its revolutionary change tracking technology, SMASHDOCs can consistently highlight changes that are new to the user. Comparing versions manually and proof-reading consequently become superfluous.
It is possible to use SMASHDOCs as a SaaS solution on smartwork solutions‘ German-based servers or as a Managed-Private-Cloud or On-Premise installation in an enterprise network. Thanks to the flexible API, SMASHDOCs can be easily integrated as a new tool for existing web applications like social intranets, document management, content management or file sharing solutions. The Munich-based company was founded it 2013. For more information see also www.smashdocs.net.
