Avantstar Introduces First Professional Edition of Quick View Plus® Software for Legal
Community; Provides Native File Review without Original Application Software

Metadata view, enhanced search, and Microsoft® Project Gantt Chart support also improve
file-viewing efficiency for large enterprises and government.

Chanhassen, Minn., Aug. 10, 2010 — Avantstar, Inc., a provider of desktop-file-viewing, content conversion and web content management software, today announced that for the first time, a professional edition of its popular Quick View Plus® (QVP) software is now available specifically for the legal community. Company Founder and Co-President Pete Rockers said, “Law firms involved in litigation cull huge volumes of documents in various file formats for data pertaining to cases. The legal community faces the same challenge as businesses when it comes to software—cutting down on purchasing applications that they use only sporadically. QVP Professional Edition not only meets this need head on, but also the need for viewing and printing documents with their original formatting intact.”

With QVP’s proven track record as a key part of many vendors’ eDiscovery and case management software, Avantstar added exclusive professional features to the new version 11 of QVP Standard Edition to create a more sophisticated product that also facilitates file viewing for large enterprises and government agencies with expanded viewing of native files, metadata, and Microsoft Project Gantt files.

QVP Professional Edition provides assurance that users can view and search virtually any file they receive via email or other sources. Users can view files from a growing list of over 300 different file types in their native file formats. It combines all the features of the Standard Edition plus these exclusives:

  • Integration with third-party programs - Available as a Software Bundle or File Access and Print Utility (FAPU) product and licensed for use in conjunction with litigation case management, eDiscovery, and enterprise content management applications.
  • Metadata view - Provides easy access to metadata associated with a document but not visible in the actual file.
  • Auto search - Provides ability to automatically search for information in a file. Select a different file and the search criteria are carried over for each subsequent file.
  • Microsoft Project Gantt chart support - For large enterprise and government agency use, in addition to the legal community, provides ability to view Microsoft Project Gantt charts without the need to purchase expensive Microsoft Project licenses. Key task and timeframe information is displayed.

Quick View Plus 11 Professional Edition for Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000 is available immediately directly from Avantstar. Pricing begins at $495 (which includes a five-user license) with volume discounts available. For more details about Quick View Plus 11 Professional Edition, visit or call (877) 829-7325.
