Enhanced Avantstar Quick View Plus® Standard Edition File-Viewing Software Boosts Expanded File-Format Support

Quick View Plus 12 cost-effectively addresses file-viewing needs with enhanced features and 32 additional file formats

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (Jan. 30, 2012)—Avantstar, Inc., a provider of desktop-file-viewing, content-conversion and web-content-management software, has announced the introduction of Version 12 of its Quick View Plus® file-viewing software. The latest version of the software addresses the evolving file-format needs of its clients with the support of 32 additional file formats.

Quick View Plus 12 Standard Edition enables software users to view and print files in more than 300 different file formats, including recently added formats, such as Adobe PDF (Package and Portfolio), AutoCAD (2010, 2009 and 2008), Corel WordPerfect X4, and Open Office 3.

With Version 12, individuals and businesses will realize a return on investment measured not only by greater efficiency in time, but also by a reduction in associated software costs,” said Pete Rockers, founder and co-president, Avantstar. “The universal file-viewing capabilities within Quick View Plus 12 Standard 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.”

As with previous versions, Quick View Plus 12 Standard Edition provides a single point of file viewing—creating efficiencies in both time and associated costs.

In addition to Quick View Plus 12 Standard Edition, Avantstar is offering a Professional Edition ideally suited for enterprises, government agencies and legal organizations. The Professional Edition features advanced viewing capabilities that provide access to metadata and hidden content within files, and it allows integration with third-party applications.

Both versions of Quick View Plus protect computers from viruses and other malicious threats, by enabling users to view files without opening them.

Pricing for Quick View Plus 12 Standard Edition begins at $49 for a single user, with volume discounts available. Pricing for Quick View Plus 12 Professional Edition begins at $495 (which includes a five-user license), also with volume discounts. An evaluation version is available for both editions upon request.
