Live Documents is 'Office for the Internet Generation' - an online office suite that merges the richness and responsiveness of desktop software with the collaborative capabilities and reach of the web. Live Documents lets you create, edit and share documents, presentations and spreadsheets in your browser without requiring you to give up the productivity features that you have access to in traditional desktop-bound office productivity applications such as Microsoft Office.

Live Documents is the only online office suite that offers "non-lossy round-tripping" with Microsoft Office - you can confidently import any document into Live Documents without worry about losing data or formatting. Even in the instance that certain features are not supported currently by Live Documents, these aspects are not dropped - when you export your documents, you will find all the elements preserved exactly like in the original.

Beyond productivity and collaboration features, Live Documents embeds enterprise-oriented features such as workflow and document management right into a single-point solution. Unlike the likes of Google Docs that is available only as a hosted service, Live Documents gives you the choice and flexibility of purchasing a SaaS subcription or a server that you can install within your office premises.
