Our Hard Work, Your New Solution

The Antenna House Regression Testing System came from an internal labor of love that we now offer to our customers to help with everyday operations.

Antenna House once used Adobe software to compare PDF outputs, but we weren’t satisfied with the false positives these comparisons generated. We knew we needed a better document comparison platform, so we created our pixel-by-pixel visual comparison system to reduce false positives and find differences that can be hidden in code comparisons.

We now offer our Formatter and Regression Testing System as the industry’s best and only formatting XSL-FO software and CSS management tool for page formatting. With a suite of the best typesetting software and support services, you’ll save money and time while still creating top-notch documents.
