PVG.lib with a new website and a new shop

After the previous successes, particularly in relation to the expansion of the functionality and the release of further modules for PVG.lib, the graphic software solution in the meantime is used increasingly in the professional environment.

softtools is taking this occasion to improve the service in conjunction with documentation and support for its products. The new website is therefore not just more transparent and more clearly arranged, it also contains more product information. In addition to the manuals that are now available online, the functions are described in more detail, and the products or modules are better documented using screenshots. Together with the system requirements, interested parties will find more important information in the forefront in order to estimate the suitability of the solution for the intended purpose. Test downloads for evaluation are also available.

In parallel to the launch of the new website, interested parties will find all purchase-relevant products in the new online shop, where comfortable online ordering and payment is possible. All processes right up to download activation are automated so that the products are available 24/7. The shop also features improved contact management that ensures quick processing when support is required or when questions are to be answered.

Our vector knowledge tailor-made for you

Should you require a tailor-made module for your special purposes or an adaptation, we are happy to assist. As PVG.lib is a product developed by softtools, we can implement special wishes with the same know-how as would be required in the case of new development of products or modules.

All possible development approaches are possible: New models, which are specially designed for your production process or for further processing and thus fulfil fully new demands, such as modified and individually adapted versions of existing modules.

Free version of PVG.view (PVG.view Free) available

After the successful application of the vector graphic library PVG.lib and the Viewer PVG.view, the further development envisages a division of the software into different user groups.

PVG.view Advanced with its extended function palette and the option of integration into the professional production workflow is available for professional use. For end users, who do not place stringent demands on the viewer, there is now a free version of PVG.view Standard available. In contrast to PVG.view Advanced, the professional version, the users of PVG.view Standard must do without just a few functions. This includes writing of PDF/A files. In the free version, reading of CAD formats (HPGL, RTL and PCL) and Postscript formats is not included. PVG.view Free can still however read PDF, DWF and Raster formats. Applying this strategy, softtools provides an important precondition for the solution particularly for B2B partners, which extends right up to the end user. A free viewer or reader, which on the one hand is perfectly matched to the upstream graphic processing chain in the production process, and on the other hand can be used by the end user without any licensing problems.
