For businesses it can be costly to download endless pieces of software however with more and more documentation becoming digitalised it is necessary to be able to deal with various different files and attachments. Installation of Quick View Plus means that these can be accessed without taking up time spent on trying to open and convert the files.
There are literally hundreds of conversions possible – we tried a number of different file types including PDF, spreadsheets, databases and more and the QVP managed to read them all successfully, as well as quickly. It is free to try and the licence cost is small enough to pay for itself relatively quickly, when you take in to account the cost of installing individual applications.
There are only two negatives as far as we could tell. Firstly, there is a slight dip in quality of the converted PDF files which don’t come back as cleanly as with Adobe and Foxlt Readers. The other problem is that it doesn’t currently handle multimedia applications which would be handy, particularly for the home user.
We would go so far as saying that this software is essential for small to medium sized businesses that don’t have the budget for endless applications or the time to convert files constantly. It’s Vista and Windows compatible so is opened easily either on the QVP viewer or through Internet Explorer. With this there is no need to get stuck with a file or attachment that you can’t open.
Multimedia options in newer editions would be welcome.
