Once accessed by the end user documents are displayed as an adobe PDF or in their native format (.tiff, Excel, Word, MS Project, etc.). Documents can be viewed by the end user or distributed via email, fax, FTP, print, etc. in your desired format. The possibilities are endless! Change your format on the fly and download to client. View or distribute multiple documents at the same time. Documents can be linked together through common index keys.
Add notes to your document
As an administration your organization has the ability to manage who can see which documents, who has access to these documents within a single spool file, PDF file or document class, how they can be distributed (if at all) and who can view notes associated with a given document.
Within WebView, PC and other file type documents can be archived for later retrieval with simply two clicks of a button. Archiving through WebView gives the organization access to key business documents within the organization in their native format, resulting in business assets being maintained in a central repository, thereby, avoiding lost or misplaced business intelligence.
