Quick View 12 reveals hidden content

Litigation support staff and eDiscovery professionals now can unlock hidden content quickly and cost-effectively with Version 12 of the Quick View Plus file-viewing software. Avantstar, a provider of desktop-file-viewing, content conversion and Web content management software, introduced the latest version at LegalTech New York 2012.

Quick View Plus 12 Professional Edition aims to provide a single point of view for concealed content, such as tracked changes, hidden columns/rows, and speaker notes, as well as metadata - all of which is critical during the discovery process.

“As it becomes more common for courts to accept documents in their native files, it’s essential to be able to quickly and cost-effectively gain access to the information contained within documents,” said Pete Rockers, founder and co-president, Avantstar.

“With this new software, organisations can view information created and contained in virtually any format, using a single software package, without risk of corrupting the file.”

Quick View Plus 12 Professional Edition supports more than 300 different file formats, including 32 recently added formats, such as Adobe PDF (Package and Portfolio), AutoCAD (2010, 2009 and 2008), Corel WordPerfect X4 and Open Office 3.

“Firms will realise a return on investment measured not only by greater efficiency in labour costs, but also by a reduction in associated software costs,” said Rockers. “The advanced universal file-viewing capabilities within Quick View Plus 12 Professional Edition not only save purchasing and maintenance expenses for applications that aren’t regularly used, but also eliminate information-exchange issues with vendors and associates.”

Deployed on desktops or used in conjunction with third-party applications such as legal-review and litigation-support programs, files are quickly accessed and viewed, via tools individuals are already comfortable using.

Quick View Plus 12 Professional Edition is available directly from Avantstar. Pricing begins at $US495 (which includes a five-user license) with volume discounts. An evaluation version is available upon request. Pricing for Quick View Plus 12 Standard Edition begins at $US49 for a single user
