Snowbound Partners with Pega to Provide Customers with Native, More Collaborative HTML5 Document Viewing Capabilities (11/6/18)

WALTHAM, Mass. (November 6, 2018) - Snowbound Software, a market leader for universal document viewing, today announced a technology partnership with Pegasystems Inc., the software company empowering customer engagement at the world’s leading enterprises. This partnership integrates Snowbound’s pure HTML5 document viewer, VirtualViewer® HTML5, with Pega’s unified, no-code development platform, Pega PlatformTM, to offer clients a faster, easier, and more secure way to directly access documents, images, and videos within Pega software.

In today’s fast-paced business climate, quick, convenient, and secure access to the right data in the correct format can make or break a project. Many knowledge workers are forced to toggle between multiple and disparate applications to manage their tasks, collaborate with colleagues, and advance their projects.

Whether working on case files for an insurance claim, mortgage documents, invoices, shipping manifests, or patient records, now Pega clients can access these files without leaving the Pega software at the center of their work. This integration between VirtualViewer HTML5 and Pega Platform enables users to:

  • Access files through one universal User Interface: The viewer supports hundreds of different formats, including PDF, TIFF, MS Office, DWG, AFP, MOV, and more without needing to open other applications. 
  • Streamline workflows and increase productivity: Users can not only view, annotate, and redact files, but also leverage powerful features such as collaboration, text search and extract, split and merge, and document comparison. 
  • Ensure operability on any device: VirtualViewer HTML5 works on desktops as well as tablets and smartphones, giving users access on the go.

Pega clients can download VirtualViewer HTML5 for testing through Pega Exchange, Pega’s application and components marketplace.  More information is also available on Snowbound’s website at
