Litera and SpringCM Partner to Shorten Sales Cycles for Mobile Sales Teams With New Cloud-Based Document Version Comparison Solution

SpringCM to Embed Litera Change-Pro® Server Technology to Bring Automatic Version Comparison to SpringCM Customers

MCLEANSVILLE, NC--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - Sales teams using SpringCM's cloud hosted offering can look forward to massively speeding up contracting and other stages of their sales cycle, thanks to a new strategic partnership announced today. Litera® Corp., a leading provider of content risk management and productivity solutions, and SpringCM, Inc., the leader in Content Cloud Services for the enterprise, have joined forces to enable automatic version comparison of sales contracts, RFI response drafts, pricing, presentations and other important sales documents. 

SpringCM is used by thousands of users to power through content hazards that stall sales and revenues. The solution is so popular that customers selected SpringCM to receive the Salesforce AppExchange Customer Choice Award for Collaboration earlier this year.

By highlighting what changed between versions in SpringCM, Salesforce Sales Cloud customers can move even more quickly through the document-intensive negotiation and contracting process and be confident that they haven't missed anything, even when working from smartphones, iPads and other mobile devices. 

"Today's sales teams need to be able to work on contracts and other key sales documents from anywhere, at anytime," said Dan Dosen, vice president, Product Management, SpringCM. "By integrating Litera's trusted technology with our SpringCM Content Cloud Services, users can easily see the differences between two versions of the document in the cloud, all without having to download anything."

Using Litera's patented Change-Pro® server-based document comparison technology, SpringCM supports multi-step business processes by automatically executing change features and storing new versions once they are created. By supporting these change operations in the cloud, Litera and SpringCM are enabling simplified document management capabilities for users, regardless of where they choose to work. The combined solution converts comparisons to RTF documents so no local copy of Microsoft Office is required. This is particularly useful for mobile review and approval via tablets and smartphones.

For users with access to Microsoft Word, comparisons are shown as redlined tracked changes. This enables users to easily review, accept and reject changes to create a new version.

"Litera's patented comparison capability for Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents has been trusted by the world's most prestigious law firms and corporations for years," said Toby Bell, Executive Vice President, Litera. "Together with SpringCM, Litera is working to enable the mobile workers with simpler solutions to achieve the content confidence and professional productivity they need to enhance their success in a variety of specific business processes such as sales contracting. Litera is pleased to partner with SpringCM in the delivery of cloud-enabled content comparison features to make life easier for today's mobile professional."

SpringCM selected Litera's Change-Pro server technology as the basis for its cloud-enabled comparison functionality because it has an unprecedented reputation for delivering a highly accurate comparison algorithm and multi-tenant architecture. The non-exclusive license enables SpringCM to deliver application-centric and mobile comparison functionality to any user of its Content Cloud Services solutions. Other integration of Litera comparison technology is planned.
