Open Text (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in enterprise content management (ECM), today announced the latest versions of Open Text Desktop Viewer and Open Text Thin Client Viewer, with expanded support for new file formats. The solutions help enterprises lower costs and improve productivity by providing a simple way to manage the creation, capture, viewing, markup and publishing of content across departments and the enterprise. Using the Open Text Thin Client Viewer, customers can view, share, distribute and collaborate on documents online with partners, suppliers and customers via a Web browser.

Open Text Desktop and Thin Client Viewer solutions offer viewing and markup capabilities for hundreds of different file formats without the need to have the originating application installed on users desktops. The ability to handle the majority of document viewing requirements, including native file viewing, 3D CAD model viewing, direct scanning and cleanup of paper documents, and document markup and revision, makes Open Text viewer solutions among the most frequently selected viewing tools on the market. The new versions introduce support for a number of new file formats, including Excel 2007, Solidworks 2008, AutoCAD 2009 and Auto Desk Inventor 2009.

These releases demonstrate Open Text s commitment to continued development and innovation of content viewing solutions from recently acquired Spicer Corporation, the original developer of these applications, formerly known as Imagenation and ViewCafe. In addition to continuing to extend stand-alone viewer capabilities, Open Text plans to further integrate content viewing and markup functionality into upcoming versions of the Open Text ECM Suite.

Our goal is to offer customers and partners the most complete and powerful content viewing solutions on the market, allowing them to lower licensing costs, improve business processes and tighten security, said Richard Anstey, Vice President of Technology and Product Strategy at Open Text. Our customers will continue to benefit from further development and innovation of these products as part of the comprehensive capabilities we offer in the Open Text ECM Suite.

  • Viewing, reviewing and markup for online document processing
  • Access to both business and technical documents and drawings from across locations and collaboration with business partners
  • Adding and managing markups and annotations
