  • Accelerate review processes

    Perform parallel or serial review processes for more efficient content reviews and ensure all annotations are handled according to business rules.

  • Work with any file type

    Collaborate on practically any type of file format, including Microsoft documents, PDFs, and CAD drawings, as well as multi-content files, xrefs, images and video clips.

  • Retain the integrity of your source documents

    Original files remain untouched with any annotation or redaction saved as a separate, overlaid XML file ensuring the source file remains safe in the repository.

  • Collaborate while keeping information secure

    Remove sensitive content from documents using flexible redactions tools, allowing redactions to be done automatically with pattern matching or text searching or manually with area selection tools.


  • Universal viewing

    Enables viewing and collaboration on practically any file type without needing the native applications.
  • Annotation tool set

    Easy to use annotation features such as text highlights, text strikethrough, checkviews, stamps, lines and drawings. Features like Changemark notes and Changemark entities house conversations bringing added value to the collaboration process.

  • Redaction tool set

    Permanently removes sensitive data from documents, not just hide it. Allows group-based views to provide some users access to the restricted content, while serving others with a redacted view.
  • Performance features

    Powerful search features, page thumbnails and fast viewing allows quick access to specific content.

  • Secure Publishing

    Publish any type of files to TIFF, PDF or OpenText's secure Content Sealed Format (CSF) with persistent file security, including password protection and an expiration date.
