See the ROI You Could Achieve Using ARender Today

01 Reduce time spent waiting for a document to open

  • This is generally the highest productivity gain and the easiest to estimate.

  • Measure the average document loading time for your current ECM system.

  • Chances are it will be between 2s and 8s, depending on the document format, complexity, network topology, repository performances.

  • Surveys at multiple ARender clients have given an average document loading time of 560ms.

  • This is, on average, 5s waiting time spared to the user of each document opened.

  • How does ARender achieve such a fast single-document loading time?

  • Streaming!

02 Quickly view any case documents in a single interface

  • Putting the benefits of quickly displaying single documents to another level, ARender can display not only single-documents but a whole set of documents.

  • ECM folders, BPM cases, all filed or attached documents can be displayed within a single user interface, with major benefits.

  • Studies on various use-cases have revealed 10% to 20% productivity gains by switching from single-document opening to case-based document opening.

03 Network bandwidth saved

  • Reducing the number of bytes required to display the document.

  • Pro-active streaming means ARender conveys pages on-demand, while the user is browsing the document.

  • Last but not least, when it comes to very large documents (100+ pages), there are few chances the users will need to display all pages in full content.

04 A unified and accurate view of any document, regardless of their format

Format Category Format Types Stakes
Single and standard PDF, Image The rendering process is static, mostly not dependant on context, well-standardized formats
Single, non-standard Microsoft Office docs videos, Non-standard image formats Rendering may vary from application to application, depending on local fonts, configuration, ...
Composite Mails, Zip, Archives Downloading the document set takes time. Navigating the document set takes time. No document preview, having to switch from application to application.
  • If any ratio of no-”single and standard” is above 10%, the struggle to open these complex, composite documents is real enough to evaluate the time spared to the user by switching to an advanced viewer.

05 Fine-grained tracing any access to any document

  • Because ARender never needs to download any content at the client-side, and only displays specially-crafted images on the user desktop, it makes content-stealing or leaking rather difficult.

  • ARender comes as an efficient way of enforcing document security policy already in place at the content repository side.

  • In very sensitive situations, avoiding just a single case of data leakage can legitimate the switch to an advanced viewing solution.

06 Accurate traceability of any business decision

  • This benefit is also strongly connected to risk management.

  • ARender uses the ISO standard XFDF format to store and retrieve annotations.

    Sticking to XFDF format has multiple advantages:
  • Feature-rich: XFDF is the most versatile and complete annotation format, handling a large set of features required by demanding users.

  • Durable: because it is an open, ISO standard, XFDF is here to stay. Annotations created now will still be viewable in their context in decades.

07 Improve content quality - case completeness

  • That's where ARender's DocumentBuilder comes at play.

  • With an easy-to-use User Interface, based on drag-and-drop and graphic display of the source documents, the users can easily reshape the whole case depending on their needs or their requirements. The newly produced contents, made up of redistribution of incoming document pages, can be saved back directly into the ECM system, with a single click of the user.

  • Document content traceability is preserved by the ECM version control features because the newly created content is inserted back as a new version (or a new document, upon configuration).

  • With tight integration with the Business Application, this feature can really facilitate the life of users, saving them long hours of daunting work, and reduce the whole case processing time because all these operations are performed in a single interface, by a single user.

08 Reduce time spent identifying differences between docs / versions

  • Document Comparison helps improve accuracy when reviewing critical documents by ensuring no change goes unnoticed, all while reducing the time-consuming task of manually comparing documents.

  • The ARender comparison feature offers an “all visual” approach that facilitates the case processing time.

09 Work anywhere, anytime for home office and nomad workers

  • The mobile responsive interface offers specific look and feel for devices with small screens. It provides a much more adapted experience for users accessing the viewer on any type of mobile.

  • The ARender comparison feature offers an “all visual” approach that facilitates the case processing time.
