Snowbound Announces New Redaction and Collaboration Tools for IBM ICN

Apr 21, 2016

Annotation Tagging and Commenting Added to VirtualViewer HTML5 for IBM ICN

Waltham, MA (April 21, 2016) – Snowbound Software, the market leader in document viewing technology, today announced the release of VirtualViewer HTML5 v4.3 for IBM Content Navigator (ICN). Snowbound’s award-winning browser-based document viewer seamlessly integrates with IBM ICN and IBM’s Enterprise Content Management product family, including Case Manager 5.2, FileNet P8 5.2, CMIS, CM8 Content Manager 4.3, and CMOD 9.5.

VirtualViewer HTML5 v4.3 provides IBM Content Navigator users with rich feature functionality and important tools not found in the default viewer, including annotation and redaction tagging, bookmarks, annotation commenting, and more:

  • Annotation and Redaction Tagging
    New annotation and redaction tools allow multiple users to collaborate on a single annotation. Users are now able to assign a tag (e.g. “Social Security Number”) to each individual annotation or redaction to indicate to other users why the annotation or redaction was placed on the page.
  • Bookmarks
    The new bookmarks feature streamlines navigation within documents by providing users with the ability to create text bookmarks on pages via the thumbnail panel and also jump to a desired page via a bookmarks list.
  • Annotation Indicators and Navigation
    Indicators ensure more efficient collaboration as users can now navigate only through the annotated pages of a document if desired, skipping pages with no annotations or stamps.
  • Annotation Commenting
    This workflow collaboration enhancement allows users to communicate about a specific part of the document by allowing comments to be added to existing annotations. Date, time of the comment, and the commenter’s name are also listed.

Snowbound will be showcasing all of the above benefits of VirtualViewer HTML5 v4.3 for ICN at upcoming IBM Content 2016 Series events in Chicago, New York City, and Toronto.

“We are very excited to meet IBM Customer needs for smarter collaboration and faster navigation at the page and document level. By listening to what IBM viewing customers and partners ask for, Snowbound is able to deliver the right solution.”
