Explorer-Based Document Management with SimpleView

SimpleView lets you quickly scan, organize, search and view documents stored on your hard drive or file servers. Most document management systems use a database to organize and search for files. This forces you to laboriously import files into the system, then you must rely on that system anytime you access your files. SimpleView lets you use your existing folder and filing system to find, view and annotate documents. This has several advantages:

Most companies that use their file servers for document management simply use Windows Explorer to find and view files. SimpleView is a much better solution for anyone that works with documents regularly.

Advanced RegEx regular expressions file and text searching Advanced Regular Expression file search for filenames containing any date

With single-user licenses starting at $300 and multi-user packs for a fraction of that, we think that SimpleView is a competitive replacement for Windows Explorer for anyone who works with scanned documents or PDF files on a regular basis.

New Interface Features in SimpleView 5

SimpleView was the fist Simple Software application to be built on our new imaging and user interface platform. Most of these updates take place behind the scenes and won't be obvious to users of previous versions. However there are two very big enhancements to the user interface you will notice right away:

Ribbon Toolbar - we have adopted the Windows 7/MS Office Ribbon Toolbar which provides easy access to all program functions, is customizable and familiar to most users.

Edit scanned PDF, TIFF images; Split, merge, re-order pages Full range of standard PDF/TIFF image editing functions

Dockable Sub-Windows - using Visual Studio style dockable panes for each element in the user interface lets you resize each window to get optimal viewing of folders, files and pages. Unused windows can be hidden. Windows can also be undocked, allowing you to view thumbnails on one screen and full page images on another. Screen layout is saved automatically and restored the next time you run SimpleView.

Multiple monitor support for viewing PDF/TIFF thumbnails and documents Dockable panes can be arranged, hidden or moved to a separate window or monitor

SimpleIndex users can look forward to seeing similar changes in future releases!

Imaging Quality Control with SimpleView

Even though we think SimpleView 5 has broader appeal as a document management tool, it is also better than ever at document imaging quality control and rescan functions. We have added some very unique and useful features in this department, including:

Of course all the standard QC functions from the previous version like deskew, despeckle, rotate, crop, rescan, etc. are all still present!

Resample TIFF/PDF resolution, color, compression, binarize Unique property select feature easily standardizes file formats

With its low cost and ability to quickly view and edit multi-page TIFF and PDF files, SimpleView is an essential tool for any batch scanning operation.

Freeware & Full Versions

SimpleView is free for those that just need to scan, search and/or view files. The Full version is required for those that need to create annotations, perform image clean-up, batch conversions and OCR. SimpleView will run in Full Trial mode for 30 days with all features enabled. When the Trial period is over it will continue to run in Free mode until activated.
