SharePoint Document and Image Viewer Announced by Snowbound Software

VirtualViewer AJAX 'Zero Footprint' Viewer Integrated With SharePoint 2010 -- To Be Demonstrated at SPTechCon in Boston October 20-22

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Snowbound Software, the pioneering leader in document viewing and conversion solutions, is pleased to announce the release of the company's AJAX browser-based document and image viewer for SharePoint 2010 (64-bit OS), Microsoft's content management system. Snowbound's SharePoint Viewer provides high-speed viewing for multiple document and image formats through one universal application -- dramatically enhancing the ability to disseminate documents to a wide group of people without any IT support or performance issues.

Snowbound's SharePoint Viewer provides a pure HTML solution with NO client installation (or Zero Footprint), enables content to be viewed from virtually anywhere, and ensures true cross-platform support with efficient document viewing to all approved users, regardless of operating system or browser. This also makes it a perfect viewing solution for situations when you have no control of the end user environment. One of the biggest advantages for VirtualViewer users is that it's installation-free, and therefore maintenance-free.

Snowbound's AJAX Viewer for SharePoint also gives SharePoint users:

  • Robust capabilities to view, redact, manipulate, annotate, and print multiple types of documents and images stored within their repositories
  • Powerful server-side functionality such as Snowbound's Page on Demand™ technology -- eliminating the need to download entire document(s); the user gets only those pages requested which greatly reduces the wait time for documents
  • Easily and quickly navigate documents using thumbnails

"The integration of our latest AJAX document and image viewing solution to Microsoft's SharePoint 2010 represents a development milestone for Snowbound Software," explained James Palo, vice president of research and development. "We have been providing our customers with viewers for a wide variety of content management solutions including Documentum, IBM Content Manager and FileNet P8 since our inception in 1996. Since the release of Microsoft's SharePoint 2010 solution, the traditional ECM landscape is changing."

Palo continued, "We want to ensure that our customers can take advantage of a complete viewing solution regardless of their backend system. Whether they are using SharePoint exclusively or in conjunction with one of the traditional ECM applications, we provide the interface that enables them to access and collaborate on documents."

Snowbound's AJAX Viewer for SharePoint will be demonstrated in booth #302 at SPTechCon in Boston on October 20-22.
