Snowbound Software Unveils VirtualViewer AJAX 3.0 Document Viewer -- Document Viewing Has Never Been Easier

Enhancements to VirtualViewer 3.0 Include New UI, Intuitive Annotation Functionality and Sophisticated International Language Support

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2012) - Snowbound Software, the market leader in document viewing and conversion solutions, is excited to announce the release of version 3.0 of the firm's installation-free VirtualViewer AJAX document and image viewer.

VirtualViewer AJAX 3.0 introduces several major improvements including:

  • A sleek new User Interface - The more modern and user-friendly UI enhances the user experience and streamlines workflow through more intuitive menu options.
  • Simplified annotation and redaction management - Users can quickly and easily add annotations or redactions to any document or image with right-click menu options to expedite review and collaboration processes.
  • Expanded international language capabilities - Easy UI localization and support for double-byte annotations enables text notes, rubber stamps and sticky notes to be displayed in any language, allowing a single deployment of VirtualViewer to address the needs of an organization's entire globally distributed user base.

Snowbound's technology is embedded within mission-critical processes by a variety of organizations, including seven of the world's ten largest financial institutions, five of the largest US insurance companies and three of the world's biggest delivery service organizations.

"We are very excited about the enhancements in the 3.0 release because they make it even easier for our customers to rely on one vendor and one solution to address their document viewing challenges," commented Simon Wieczner, President of Snowbound Software. "The concept of one viewer meeting the different needs of multiple departments is creating a paradigm shift in the way organizations think about implementing a front end document and claims handling solution."

To meet various work group requirements within an enterprise, Snowbound has also provided additional configuration options in the viewer enabling VirtualViewer to be easily tailored to meet the most demanding corporate needs. Additionally the viewer can auto detect the language setting of the user's browser and automatically display the viewer's menu(s) and dialog boxes in the end-user's language.

"The AJAX 3.0 redesign was focused on improving usability to ensure the product is as simple and intuitive as possible to use. By providing a solution that delivers simplicity while maintaining its original utility and power, we are able to help our customers increase their productivity," added Jeff Kurson, Product Manager.

Snowbound's VirtualViewer AJAX document viewer is a pure HTML document viewing solution enabling file retrieval through a universal Web application. It does not require any client-side installation or plug-ins such as Flash, Adobe, or Office. VirtualViewer AJAX works with any standard browser, provides on-the-go mobile document viewing, and delivers flexible cross-platform support.

Snowbound will be demonstrating the latest enhancements in two upcoming 30-minute webinar sessions: Register here ( for either Tuesday, August 21 at 2:00 p.m. EDT or Thursday, August 23 at 10:00 a.m. EDT.
