New "windream Record Viewer" for quick document organisation and viewing

Just in time, meaning with the start of this year's CeBIT fair, we will present a new tool for document preview. Actually, the "windream Record Viewer" is much more than a tool for viewing files only, as it represents an ideal solution to make documents available for mobile use.

windream Record Viewer provides a convenient solution with which any type of document archived in the windream ECM-system can be bundled and viewed in a very simple way. Thus, the desired files are simply selected in the Windows Explorer and are then converted to an HTML-file via a respective command of the windream context menu.

After having selected the desired documents, the new software starts a remote conversion process and presents the contents of the selected documents on an HTML-site with any common web browser and on any output device. The tool can be configured individually so that e.g. the storage locations of the HTML-files can be determined freely.

Packing, transporting, reading – very easy

This way, even complex document volumes like e.g. project-related information or complex records and files of any type can be bundled to one portable record. A single HTML-file will then enable users to open, read and transport the records conveniently on different media.

Access to these documents is independent of the original files. This way, e.g. facsimiles of scanned documents are integrated into the HTML-view. And even Powerpoint slides, Word or Excel-documents and any other file type can be presented with the new windream Record Viewer tool in HTML-format. In order to make the viewing even more convenient, users can click a "+/-" button to switch the document viewing on or off for each document contained in the HTML-record. This way, only those documents will be displayed which are currently required. Optionally, the software is also able to present each first page of a document as a thumbnail. Further on, a user can individually decide what associated index data shall be presented with the converted HTML document preview.

Also ideal in mobile use

windream Record Viewer is also an ideal tool e.g. for windream users who need quick and uncomplicated access to project data or to the contents of electronic records without having to transport the original documents of a windream ECM-system. With windream Record Viewer, we especially offer mobile windream users a powerful, uncomplicated and easy to configure tool with which they can make document volumes available very quickly. However, the most decisive argument in this context is that all document contents including the associated attributes are not available as a pure unstructured collection of separate original files, but as a complete collection in one single HTML-file.
