Snowbound Releases VirtualViewer AJAX 2.0 with Enhanced Page Manipulations

Performance Enhancements Featured for both Java and .NET Users

November 16, 2010 (Boston, MA) – Snowbound Software, the leader in document viewing and conversion solutions, is pleased to announce the release of version 2.0 of the company’s flagship ‘Zero Footprint’ (NO client install required), VirtualViewer AJAX offering. This latest product offering features a wide variety of new page manipulation functionality, as well as greatly enhanced performance upgrades.

VirtualViewer is the only professional-grade Zero Footprint viewer that operates with virtually any Web browser, as well as on mobile devices such as Apple’s iPad and many Smartphones. VirtualViewer displays virtually all document and image formats (MS Office, PDF, TIFF, and more), enables the ability to mark-up/annotate, gives users access to content without compromising document formatting or retrieval speed and requires no application installation or client download.

The latest VirtualViewer AJAX release offers robust product improvements for advanced page manipulation including the creation of new documents, combining documents, and the deletion and reordering of pages – all from a Zero Footprint client. The new capabilities and performance upgrades are available for the Java platform now and will be offered to .NET users in December.

Snowbound’s AJAX universal viewer also offers users the ability to open multiple documents (Virtual documents) at the same time, select which documents are displayed by default when the viewer is opened, and allow the document thumbnail display panel to highlight either the pages from one document or the first page from multiple documents – to enhance workflow by preparing user-defined document sets that extract pages from multiple documents in advance to speed review.

“The enhancements to our AJAX viewing technology shows our ongoing commitment to keeping our products as relevant as we can to our customers’ evolving needs,” explained Simon Wieczner, president, Snowbound Software. “We are always striving to offer state-of-the-art options and solutions that the industry has come to expect from Snowbound Software. The real win with our enhanced AJAX technology is not only that it will operate on the brand-new iPad but on any browser and on any system – without any install. And now with the enhanced 2.0 features, the client can do much more document manipulation – critical to the needs of our customers who want to provide more power to the desktop while avoiding installation and support issues.”
