What is GroupDocs?

GroupDocs is an online service for document management and collaboration.

Document management should be simple but it can be frustrating. Not everyone has the same programs or the same version of the same programs. It’s important that you can open the files that your accountant sends you, share your marketing collateral with potential clients and your presentations with the world.

GroupDocs makes it easy to store, share and manage documents. It offers document storage and conversion, assembly and sharing, collaboration and comparison, even digital signatures. We’re adding new features all the time and welcome your feedback and comments.

What products and services do you offer?

GroupDocs is a document management platform. Through GroupDocs, you can store and manage documents, convert documents and images between different formats as well as view, compare and collaborate on documents. With your GroupDocs account, you get access to a range of apps:

  • GroupDocs.Viewer lets you read documents in your browser, regardless of whether you have the software that they were created in or not. You can search the document, copy text and even embed the document – document viewer and all - in a web page.
  • GroupDocs.Signature is an easy to use digital signature service. Use it so collect signatures without the administrative overhead of printing, stuffing envelopes and posting. Simply email documents to your signers and wait for them to sign. GroupDocs.Signature will even remind them if they forget so that you can focus on other things.
  • GroupDocs.Conversion is an online document converter that lets you perform online document conversion quick and easy. It is a Word to PDF converter as well as supports document conversion of all common file formats, including DOCX to PDF, PDF to JPEG, DOC to DOCX, DOCX to EPUB, to name a few. It includes an intuitive UI and supports multiple file formats, so you can convert Word to Image, Word to PDF, PDF to Image, etc. in minutes or even in seconds. Its simple workflow walks you through every step until you complete the entire document conversion process.
  • GroupDocs.Assembly lets you automate document creation and completion. It is a simple way of creating standard forms, for example, by setting up a questionnaire. The assembly process creates a new document that incorporates the answers to the questions in the questionnaire and looks like the template.
  • GroupDocs.Comparison lets you compare documents and see the differences between them. This helps you keep track of changes, consolidate different versions of documents and make sure that your documents are the best they can be.
  • GroupDocs.Annotation lets you view and comment on documents. You can add comments to Microsoft Word or PDF documents and then save them with Word comments. You can also collaborate on a document with a colleague and see comments as they are added.
