Intelligence makes the difference
At first glance one could think that SMASHDOCs is just a simple web editor.
But there is one important difference: Intelligence.
A SMASHDOC is an intelligent web document whose content is managed in a totally different way in comparison to the ordinary files such as MS WORD or the non-intelligent web editors such as Google Docs, Microsoft Word online, Quip or dropbox paper.
Until now changes were managed through document versions
Until now to manage changes in a document, one was creating multiple versions of it.
In the case of files, it ends up quickly in a no longer manageable number of copies.
Non-intelligent web documents such as Google Docs are true version skids, after a certain time or a certain number of changes they automatically create a new version of the document.
This inevitably leads to chaos as well as loss of time and control. Sophisticated document management systems cannot get a grip on it either.
SMASHDOCs manages content intelligently
The SMASHDOCs document editor, however, is based on a completely newly developed, patented, worldwide unique concept and technology.
The content of a document is automatically broken down to individual parts (the so called “fragments”). Thus every paragraph, every image and every table is managed separately in a data base in the background.
The SMASHDOCs front end assembles the separate fragments in a “document”, so the user can work with it in the usual way. The user does not notice at all that he actually operates a database.
SMASHDOCs revolutionizes collaborative text processing
This concept and the technology behind it revolutionize text processing in many aspects.
Thus there are no new versions of a document with every change of content, just more versions of the respectively changed fragments. There is always only one single document which contains the complete history of all changes and conversations.
Thanks to the structured storage of all fragment changes in a database, a SMASHDOC always “knows” exactly who made changes and when. So, it can decide for each user which changes are new for him and respectively highlights them.
A SMASHDOC adapts itself automatically to the state of knowledge of the user („Adaptive Redlining“) and thus makes tracking changes easier. Time-consuming version comparison and proofreading is gone for good. The adjustments and the updates appear when the user opens a document as well as when he simultaneously works on it with others.
The fragmented content management sets completely new standards in respect to its reusability and production capability. A SMASHDOC is not a “document” in a certain format per se, also not an XML or Html document. The content of a SMASDOC can be exported flexibly and easily in every desired format with any imaginable design into any desired data structure as well as saved in another data bank (for example component CMS) for reuse.
SMASHDOCs – a web-based platform for intelligent, collaborative text processing
SMASHDOCs works perfectly as a professional stand alone-solution as well as with other applications.
You can create documents using the SMASHDOCs editor, or you can import already existing content, for example, from a WORD document, a web document such as Google Docs or a data bank.
The collaborative content review takes place using the numerous possibilities offered by SMASHDOCs, which can be expanded at any time by using third parties services, for example, the linguistic check of Acrolinx.
SMASHDOCs archives content and its changes for the long term. It could also be exported into every desired data format and data structure or respectively transferred to other systems where the content can be further processed or archived for the long term.
Thereby if needed SMASHDOCs turns into a web-based platform for intelligent, collaborative text processing.
Flexibly installable, integrable and completely remote controllable
SMASHDOCs is a cloud product which does not mean that it is only available as a public cloud solution.
We know that a lot of professional users would like to choose by themselves where their data is saved. That’s why you can use SMASHDOCs also as a Private Cloud On-Premise Installation.
The modern docker container ensures that installation and running of updates happen extremely fast and easily.
All SMASHDOCs functions are externally controllable via API, so if needed it can be integrated into any desired web application – both as a content type (“intelligent web document”) and as a collaborative content editor, for example for collaborative review of WORD documents and conversion into other data formats and structures.
That’s why SMASHDOCs is of interest not only for end users but also for product providers (for example DMS, ECM, File Sharing, Intranets, etc.) which would like to expand and upgrade their application functionally. Thus you can generate more revenue from existing customers as well as create unique selling points to gain new ones.
