McLeansville, NC, United States, 2010/04/27 - Litéra®, the leader in next-generation document lifecycle management (DLM), announced the launch of Litéra Live, a cloud-based solution for easy-to-use document lifecycle management.
Litéra Live gives anyone, anywhere, from any device, the power to collaborate, compare and clean Microsoft Office documents including Word, PowerPoint (including embedded objects) and Excel, as well as PDF files.
