TITUS Offers SharePoint Document Converter Free


Software allows organizations to quickly migrate documents to Office 2007 format.

Ottawa, ON —December 2, 2009TITUS today announced that it is now offering its Document Converter for SharePoint software at no cost. TITUS Document Converter for SharePoint automatically converts Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from earlier Office formats to Office 2007 format when saved in a Microsoft SharePoint Document Library.

Organizations are often faced with compatibility issues when migrating between different versions of Microsoft Office. The transition to Office 2007’s new XML format is especially challenging. While Microsoft provides several features and tools to address this issue, the easiest way to minimize compatibility issues is to convert old documents to the Office 2007 format.

TITUS Office Document Converter for SharePoint automatically converts Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents to Office 2007 format when saved in a Microsoft SharePoint Document library. This eliminates the need for users to open each file individually and save the files in the new format. SharePoint users simply add the documents to a SharePoint document library, and the file types are converted automatically.

"Microsoft SharePoint is widely used for information management, but users are often faced with document compatibility issues when the organization is migrating to Office 2007,” said Charlie Pulfer, Vice President of Product Management, Titus. “TITUS offers a number of solutions that help organizations extend the value of their SharePoint investment and control sensitive information eliminating common issues that can impact the deployment of SharePoint. We are pleased to be able to share our Office Document Converter for SharePoint at no cost."
