How does Merops work?


Here’s what happens when you process a document:

  1. The document is uploaded to our server
  2. The Merops server analyses the content
  3. Merops makes tracked changes, and adds comments where needed
  4. Merops builds new output documents, in your desired format*
  5. The document is then downloaded to your computer, ready for reviewing

*Output formats include highly enriched Microsoft Word document, XML conforming to major DTDs, HTML, and PDF.

Why are documents processed on the Merops server?

This enables us to use powerful machines that can process documents more quickly, without using your computer’s resources. It also lets us make regular improvements without you having to install updates.

How does Merops know what to do with the document once it’s been recognized?
