Partnership Delivers Advanced HTML5 Viewing to Clients Across Asia

Waltham, MA (September 25, 2018) – Snowbound Software, an independent software provider and market leader for document viewing, today announced a co-marketing and sales partnership with Crest Solutions, a technology company located in Malaysia that specializes in information technology integrations.

Crest Infosolutions provides Digital Transformation Solutions and System Integration services to a wide variety of companies in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong S.A.R., Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. This partnership will allow both Snowbound and Crest to deliver advanced HTML5 viewing solutions to customers across Asia.

“Snowbound’s VirtualViewer is a great complementary solution for our Alfresco customers looking to achieve better collaboration,” said Hemant Prasad, Crest CEO. “Snowbound’s ability to quickly address problems with hotfixes and feature enhancements separates them from the pack.”

Crest will focus on connecting Snowbound with Alfresco users across Asia looking to level up their current system with more powerful and robust document viewing functionality.

Snowbound’s VirtualViewer® HTML5 for Alfresco is a fast, pure HTML5 viewer that offers advanced functionality, including document split & merge, secure pattern-based redaction, and robust annotation and collaboration features. Its extensive format support—including AFP, PDF, DWG, Word, Excel, and more—enables it to be used in applications across a variety of industries. In addition to Alfresco, VirtualViewer HTML5 also integrates with OpenText Documentum and IBM FileNet/Content Navigator.

“We are excited to partner with Crest as our premier Alfresco System Integrator in Asia and have already enjoyed successful deployments in Malaysia,” said Jean-Baptiste Ronfard, Snowbound Software’s Business Development Manager and Alfresco Channel Manager. “We look forward to bringing our pure HTML5 document viewing solution to more and more companies looking for advanced collaboration tools and functionality not found in their default viewer.”

With VirtualViewer HTML5 embedded directly into Alfresco, the user will never have to leave the environment to view a document. The viewer can also be opened as a standalone client in a new tab or window if needed.
