Software company leverages Document Filters for continued innovation.
Avantstar has been in business since 2001 and is a leader in document viewing for large corporate and small businesses, government agencies and law firms worldwide. Avantstar’s Quick View Plus technology platforms enable customers to increase productivity by providing instant visibility into over 300 file formats, without the need to view within their native applications. Customers have the option of deploying a file viewer for the desktop or laptop, server or via hosted web services — bringing modern convenience to users. Additionally, Quick View Plus also serves customers with more advanced needs, like e-discovery, native file review or computer forensics.
Depth and breadth of file formats
Avantstar’s product team had been working with this type of technology for nearly 20 years. It was determined to fill the list of requirements needed to purchase the right technology. The product team understood there were only two or three potential vendors in this space that could satisfy its needs. Avantstar needed a vendor that would:
- Deliver a forward-thinking product and service
- Present a one-stop shop for the functionality of products needed
- Support a wide range of file formats and output types
Hyland's Document Filters plays a critical role in the rendering process for Quick View Plus. The high quality of output formats and the breadth of supported file formats packed into Document Filters’ functionality proved the key reasons for choosing Hyland.
Document Filters had the breadth and depth of file format support we needed, along with the advanced technology capabilities for continued innovation.

Render precise reproductions
The Avantstar team had precise requirements around providing its customers with the ability to view documents as close to the native rendering as possible. Resolution had to be high-definition (HD), and Document Filters renders content in HD without the need for additional software.
Work with any file format
Avantstar’s users spend their time in a vast array of file formats and need lots of output options. By deploying Document Filters, Avantstar gave customers the ability to work with 300-plus file types without leaving their native environment.
Make life simpler for developers
Document Filters is an SDK, which means vendor partnerships are consolidated and licensing is simplified. Avantstar needed a technology that would provide forward-thinking innovation and long-term value that customers would recognize as a major upgrade. With Document Filters, all of this is in one simple package.
“Working with Hyland’s product team has been a positive experience, and the responsiveness of technical support is tremendous,” said Pete Rockers, co-founder and partner at Avantstar.
“They have proven to be a great, collaborative technology partner and vendor for us as we expand our product offerings in the market.”
