FREMONT, CA: SMASHDOCs, a leading development and marketing platform for collaborative word processing applications, and SmartDocuments, the industry leader in automated document generation, have built an interface between their two systems.

Smart Document Generator from SmartDocuments allows users to quickly and easily build and customize error-free draft documents, such as contracts or legal filings in mass litigation cases, thanks to easy user instructions and a user-friendly Q&A screen. SmartDocuments has been the industry leader in this sector for many years and represents more than 500 organizations in over 40 countries. SMASHDOCs simplify and accelerate collective analysis and negotiation of all forms of documents. SMASH-DOC solutions are now available for a wide variety of uses, including book writing, annual reports, financial printing, contract ventures, and many more.

Interface Extends Functionality of Both systems to Create SubstantialCompetitive Advantages

“The new SMASHDOCs interface offers the kind of exciting new functionality our users have come to expect from us, and demand is growing,” saysMarco Drost, Founder and CEO, SmartDocuments. “Whenever a SmartDocuments user creates a document that still needs to be reviewed internally or negotiated with a counterparty, the draft can now be output directly via SMASHDOCs rather than as a Word document, thereby allowing users to take full advantage of SMASHDOCs extensive package of collaborative features. Especially in terms of eliminating the flood of different document versions, the tidal wave of emails, and the audit-proof documentation of comments, change proposals and approvals, SMASHDOCs patented section-by-section version control and Adaptive Red-lining set completely new standards. Thanks to our new SMASHDOCs interface, our stand-alone solution becomes a modern document lifecycle platform, and allows us to clearly differentiate ourselves from our direct competitors and become even more successful in tenders”, addsDrost.

Time-saving, Automated, and Audit-Proof Documentation

The integration of SmartDocuments and SMASHDOCs generates significant benefits for users, especially in the area of agreement formation and negotiation. Users can build their draft agreements in SmartDocuments before working seamlessly digitally in SMASHDOCs, easily controlling their document development workflows from the first draft to the insertion of actual, legally binding electronic signatures to the final document. Users who want to work in Microsoft Word will participate seamlessly in the online process at any time, thanks to smart Word export and re-import features. The solution is 80 percent faster compared to pure MS Word and email-based processes and guarantees 100 percent automatic and audit-proof recording of the entire history of document creation. Another benefit for users of SmartDocuments is the complete incorporation of SMASHDOCs into Microsoft Teams. Users are now able to build and interact instantaneously with SmartDocuments documents on the Microsoft Teams Channel.

SMASHDOCs App Ecosystem is Growing Exponentially

“We could not be more excited about the new interface with SmartDocuments. Not only do our customers now have access to one of the most powerful document assembly systems on the market, it is also seamlessly integrated into SMASHDOCs”, says Christian Marchsreiter, Founder and CEO, SMASHDOCs. “A rapidly growing number of major technology partners are launching interfaces to link their solutions to the SMASHDOCs platform, seamlessly integrating digital signatures, automated translation and the creation of professional print quality PDF and InDesign files into SMASHDOCs collaborative word processing solutions. The SMASHDOCs app ecosystem is expanding much faster than we could have ever hoped, creating completely new benefits and solutions in the field of collaborative word processing. Integrating SmartDocuments marks a significant milestone in terms of Q&A-based document creation as a pre-stage for review and collaboration in SMASHDOCs,” he adds.
