Docx2doc improves file conversion success rate

At we keep track and monitor our conversion success rates. Note that we do not store any files on our server, but we keep statistics on whether files convert properly so we can improve our service.

We found out that we can increase the success rate of converting documents by adding multiple conversion algorithms. If one method does not work we automatically try to convert your docx files to doc using a secondary method.

Our overall success rate for converting docx documents was very high to begin with, but we felt adding an alternate method in the rare case the first one failed would only be a benefit. All of the document conversion is done real time on the fly so you won't see what is happening and just get your converted file back automatically.

We hope you enjoy the reliability of our docx to doc service and do our best to improve it as much as possible.

Server upgrade helps convert docx to doc instantly

Converting documents takes quite a bit of computational horespower, especially when doing on the fly file conversions while you wait for the converted document to appear. converts thousands of docx files a day, and it was starting to stress the server during peak times. We closely monitor the site to proactively solve potential problems before they affect the user. So we upgraded our primary server which does the docx document conversions.

Our goal is to get your converted file back to you in the shortest amount of time possible. We appreciate your business and will do everything we can to proactively keep our systems running - our goal is that you won't notice any difference!
