When PDF.js Is Not Enough

  • Extensive Format Support: One viewer for all your formats, including AFP, PDF, MS Office, DWG, TIFF, MOV, audio files and more
  • High-Speed Viewing for Large Files: Document rendering and processing is split between the server and browser to deliver high-speed response
  • Advanced Features and Functions: Annotate, redact, split & merge, document comparison and more
  • Our Own Library: We own and manage the majority of our format library so we don’t have to rely on third-party software to support formats

Snowbound + Alfresco Partnership

  • An Official Alfresco Technology Partner Since 2014: We provide users with an alternative HTML5 document viewer to view, annotate and redact all popular document and image formats within a single window.
  • One Stop Shop: Alfresco customers can extend their solution by including VirtualViewer in their Alfresco order at the same point of purchase. The viewer is available directly through Alfresco as the “Alfresco Content Viewer by Snowbound.”

“Snowbound’s document viewing solution is the perfect fit with our technologies at Alfresco. By expanding our partnership we are not only able to offer our users a robust document viewing solution, but also a more streamlined onboarding process that requires only one bill to pay, one purchase order, and a single point of contact for support across the entire solution.”

Scott Elliott, Alfresco’s Head of Worldwide Channel & Alliances.
