Snowbound Software and Alfresco Form Technology Partnership

WALTHAM, MA–(Marketwired – Sep 16, 2014) – Snowbound Software, the market leader in document viewing technology, today announced a new technology partnership with Alfresco, a leading enterprise content management provider.

Snowbound’s powerful web-based document viewer, VirtualViewer HTML5, extends Alfresco’s collaborative enterprise content management platform, Alfresco One, by delivering users with sophisticated features such as the ability to view multiple documents within the document viewer, comprehensive annotation and redaction capabilities, page manipulations, and text search.
“The combination of Alfresco’s exceptional enterprise content management platform with Snowbound’s VirtualViewer presents a valuable solution for both document management and viewing,” said Snowbound’s Product Manager, Jeff Kurson. “We look forward to joining the growing community of system integrators, software vendors, infrastructure providers and resellers who build their solutions with Alfresco.”
Once integrated with Alfresco One, VirtualViewer HTML5 provides users with the ability to view all popular document formats, including MS Office, PDF, AFP, TIFF, HTML, PCL, and JPEG. It is a pure Java solution on the server and does not require any client-side installations, downloads, or plug-ins, allowing IT departments to easily maintain and update the document viewer.
“It is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to control all of their internal and external user environments,” said Snowbound’s Director of Marketing, Jody Spencer. “VirtualViewer’s configurability makes it easy for administrators to control permission-based access of multiple groups while providing a universal viewing experience regardless of the users’ browser or device.”
Snowbound will be showcasing the benefits of the Alfresco integration with VirtualViewer HTML5 at the Alfresco 2014 Summit in San Francisco (September 23-25) and London (October 7-9).
