Vizit, a leading provider of search and collaboration solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, announced the general availability of Vizit Essential for SharePoint 2013.

Vizit Essential makes content easy to discover and share in SharePoint 2013. Vizit Essential extends SharePoint’s search capabilities by taking users directly to key passages or exhibits within files. Vizit recently conducted a study of over 1,200 companies using SharePoint in which 68% of respondents indicated that, when searching, they are attempting to find a specific excerpt within a file, not the entire file. Vizit Essential makes that easy.

With Vizit Essential, a SharePoint user can easily find a key exhibit or passage and collaborate with other SharePoint users by sharing Vizit Essential’s Clips or by highlighting and commenting. Vizit Essential’s comments are interactive and provide a forum for employees to engage in dialog on key topics. Vizit also offers integrations with Nintex workflow, NewsGator, and Yammer for its Clips and comments.

Vizit Essential continues to be the fastest and most efficient solution for rendering and viewing SharePoint files on-demand. Vizit Essential not only provides previews of Microsoft Office formats, but also hundreds of other document formats including PDFs and TIFs–which are not supported in SharePoint 2013.

In addition, Vizit Essential continues to offer features missing from SharePoint 2013, such as:
* Editing meta-data while viewing a file
* Printing directly from a file preview, or
* Providing a watermarked read-only view of a document with download and print disabled

With the availability of Vizit Essential for SharePoint 2013, organizations moving to the new SharePoint platform will have better options for cost-effectively addressing their SharePoint users’ previewing needs. Vizit Essential for 2013 is available now. Readers can learn more at
