One of the features that GroupDocs offers is document conversion, converting documents from one file formats to another. There are lots of different reasons why this is such a big deal. If you've never been sent a file you couldn't open, or had a file you sent somewhere returned to you because the recipient couldn't open it - you've been lucky! It is becoming much easier to send documents from one application or operating system to another. In the mid-90s, a Word document created on a Mac, for example, could not easily be opened on a Windows PC. Now, what operating system you have isn't a barrier to sharing documents. The problems now is mostly which programs, and which program versions, you have. Still, converting documents is still not always easy.
Converting documents saves time and effort
Below is a list of six different occasions when it is really handy to be able to convert documents between formats. Four of the examples start with a Microsoft Word file, DOC, and converts it to other formats: DOC to HTML, DOC to PDF, DOC to JPG and, finally, DOC to ODT. I also explain why you might want to convert between Word versions: DOCX to DOC. Not all documents are word documents so there's also a scenario for when you might want to convert a PowerPoint presentation to image file: PPTX to JPG. At the end, you'll hopefully have a good idea of why converting documents is useful and how GroupDocs can help you.
