Who’s using it?

Most industries working with large amounts of digital documents have recognized the value of HTML5 viewing technology.

Financial services

Banks and other businesses in the financial industry use HTML5 viewing technology for two key purposes: a unified document viewer application to display all documents and markups, and document security. Having a unified document viewer streamlines workflows and reduces costs. With web-based applications, security is the up-most importance for bank and other financial institutions, document security ensures that this information remains private and is not accessible to unauthorized users.


Government agencies such as public safety and utilities have a particular need for HTML5 viewing technology since they have multiple sources of documents across several decades. Government agencies often deal with a wide range of document formats, including text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, images, PDFs, MO:DCA, and more, which HTML5 document viewers support. Additionally, document viewers often come with built-in security features such as password protection, encryption, and access controls.


Legal departments and law firms use HTML5 document viewing technology mainly for document review and e-discovery. Document viewers enable efficient review workflows by allowing multiple users to access and annotate documents simultaneously, along with reviewing multiple versions of the same document and highlight changes. Document viewers also streamline the review of electronically stored information (ESI) in e-discovery by providing quick access to diverse file formats, helping legal teams identify relevant documents, and prepare for litigation effectively.


Insurance agencies are highly dependent on HTML5 viewing technology. With the need of field work during review of claims, HTML5 document viewers enable insurance professionals to access policy documents and claims information securely from any location and device. After the claim has been verified, HTML5 document viewers streamline claims processing and underwriting workflows by enabling insurance professionals to review policy documents, claims submissions, medical reports, and supporting documentation efficiently. This improves decision-making and accelerates the processing of insurance claims.
