(VIENNA and DALLAS) Oct. 23, 2009 – In cooperation with the global printing and imaging industry’s AFP Consortium (AFPC), enterprise software innovator ISIS Papyrus announces it has released its AFP Viewer V7.00 for Windows as freeware for the benefit of the entire IT community.
“As an early adopter of the AFP standard, ISIS Papyrus is excited to demonstrate the importance of easy access to business and customer documents with a professional-quality viewer,” said Roberto Anzola, R&D Manager for ISIS Papyrus Software and AFPC Board Director. “Our global enterprise experience and success in high-volume and high-quality document management environments gives us deep expertise in enhancing AFP performance.”
The ISIS Papyrus AFP Viewer plug-in enables Web browser-based viewing of any documents created or stored in the widely-used AFP format. AFP, or Advanced Function Presentation, is a presentation architecture that offers independence from specific applications and devices for document and information presentation. Particularly important in driving new industry initiatives like TransPromo, e-discovery and the electronic delivery of mission-critical documents such as bills, statements, and policies, AFP has powerful advantages over other print architectures as it supports very high print speeds, output integrity and centralized, automated server-based management.
