Almanac vs. Google Docs

Google Docs was a pioneering product in 2006, bringing documents online and allowing people to collaborate on them.

The problem with Google Docs is the organization and collaboration around the documents is awful.

We hear it all the time:
"Our Google Drive is a mess."
"No one can ever find where the right doc is."
"Is v3_final the right one or is it final_jims_edits-v3finalfinal?"

We're different.

Almanac is a document editor with powerful version control that makes it easy to organize, revise, and reference your work.

Not only does Almanac have modern integrations that you expect and need, we give you the flexibility to organize docs however you like so you'll actually be able to find them.

Teams need modern solutions that fit how work happens today, not 2006.
