As a an official Alfresco Technology Partner, Snowbound provides users with a powerful web-based document viewer to view all popular document and image formats within a single window so the user will never have to leave the environment to view a document.


When integrated into Alfresco's enterprise content management (ECM), our pure HTML5 document viewer provides:


Powerful and Sophisticated Features

- View Multiple Documents: Alfresco users can easily navigate between documents and pages using tabbed windows and thumbnails. By displaying multiple documents and different file formats all in one window, VirtualViewer streamlines processing and review.

- Page Manipulation: The document viewer’s sophisticated page manipulation options allow users to easily delete, re-order, or move pages between documents or create an entirely new document.

- Text Search & Extraction: Powerful text searching features enable users to quickly find desired content within text-based documents by highlighting the results. After locating desired content, users can also easily copy and extract text by dragging over the text, copying to the clipboard, and then pasting safely and securely elsewhere.

- Annotations and Redactions: VirtualViewer provides users with a variety annotation and redaction tools, including rubber stamps, redactions, highlighting, and sticky notes. Annotations and redactions inherit user permission levels set up in Alfresco (Manager, Collaborator, Contributor, and Consumer), ensuring confidential information is only seen by approved users. When page manipulations and annotations are finished being made, the document can be saved and committed to the repository, or even exported or distributed depending on user permissions.

- It operates on any device with a browser, including laptops, smartphones and tablets.
