Shovel Ready Project Viewing Solutions

Now that the federal government is awarding stimulus money for infrastructure improvement, electronic document management is crucial for municipalities and states that are launching Shovel Ready projects and need to meet federally mandated deadlines. Electronic document management systems can reduce the submission, review and approval process time for such projects from months to weeks.

But electronic document management solutions alone do not address on-going viewing challenges that could arise due to incompatible systems or unreadable documents. Leverage your system with Snowbound Software’s viewing technology and ensure your entire project team unobstructed access to project proposals, approvals, schematics, change notices, blueprints and more.

RasterMaster®, our viewing and conversion SDK, and VirtualViewer®, our high-speed™ viewing application, support a wide range of file formats, including DWG for Windows and .NET and conversions from DWG to PDF or DWG to TIFF. VirtualViewer is available as a standalone Java Applet, a Java applet and content server combination, as well as an VirtualViewer HTML5 Zero Footprint option for either Java or .NET. With Snowbound’s viewing solutions your projects spring off the page and into construction— fast. Here’s how:
