Here are 7 SaaS document viewer use cases of the future that are already here.

Video annotation.

If we look at the heritage of documents that we visualize, it is now evolving quickly.

Until now, we were used to viewing static documents, today we are starting to have more complex formats. We expect to share, view and listen audio or video.

ARender annotate video documents. it's a significant improvement

In this car accident use case -  https://youtu.be/7kRd4ZTtGiM - you pick up your phone, you film your car; the movie lasts 2 / 3 minutes. The insurer annotates sensitive moments; experts focus on important and annotated details.

This video is used in streaming mode, with a low consumption of network resources.


The provision of sensitive documents.

Whether for the distribution of sensitive documents internally or externally, the ability to control the use of documents is an important issue.

Retail banks need to provide their customers with financial reporting. The provision of all reporting content requires monitoring real consumption and controlling access.

Compliance needs are greater.

In the pharmaceutical industry, compliance needs are even greater.

ARender has developed many agreements with publishing companies that use ARender to be able to track the reading of all the pages of a document to ensure that the user has read the entire document that he must validated.

Before, the user had to declare on honour he had read the document correctly; now we can trace the reading and we are able to say that the user has browsed all the pages to obtain the user's informed consent.

The possibility of going to the next page is given only when the previous page has been consulted. It is possible to trace the viewing time of each page.

The electronic registered letter.

If you receive an electronic registered letter. ARender ensures that it has been visualized on the workstation. The user will no longer be able to say that he or she has received the letter but has not been able to read it.

We are able to trace our journey page by page and to be able to oppose, in terms of recourse, the logs of use.


Enhanced and real time collaboration.

The new architecture, based on microservices, provides dynamic work between users, robustness, opening.

Using Websockets allows users to work dynamically in real time.

In the two screens below, the synchronization of annotations between two users is done in real time. When User #1 makes a change to the document, User #2 sees the change simultaneously.





The document is at the heart of users' lives. Arender has really changed the lives of users in their daily tasks.


Advanced search and redact.

Redact is to remove words or information from a text before it is printed or made available to the public. 

For instance, officers' names are routinely redacted from any publicly released reports. Some parts of secret files are available to the public, but heavily redacted.
For example, In Europe, this applies in a GDPR context for example.

This important functionality answers the needs for advanced searches and masking of personal, confidential or sensitive data. 

Arender allows to redact all the sensitive datas or information in a document. Redacting is the action of making a mask to filter a word or group of words.

This is used to hide sensitive information when viewing a document by an unauthorized user and to allow viewing only by users who are authorized.

This function is scriptable by Java script API to allow to launch actions of mass masking on sensible data.





One of our customer, a large European Insurance company uses anonymization in this way: an insured person transmits a medical document containing sensitive information; then the insurance company must provide this document to an expert, while guaranteeing the anonymity of the insured.

Let me explain another exemple is the United States of America: any American citizen can ask to consult information about him. The US Administration reserves the right to hide confidential information, but must justify this masking.

In both cases, masking is applied to a document. Just need to select the information to hide, choose the masking feature that comes to apply an opaque mask (whose color is customizable) to give them to hide.

The new PDF fabric.

Our customers exceed us. Some of our customers want to use Arender to generate PDFs.

Several clients use the rendition engine to generate their own faithful.pdf files to re-archive them in their document management system.

These are non-disposable PDFs that has to be stored in the document management system.
