It is an interesting tool to manage usage and distribution of digital documents. Its a appears to be a tool meant for the enterprise user to ensure confidentiality of documents.
A caveat, it is currently in beta and lets hope we see continuous improvements.
Some of my initial observations on the tool were
- It took me 3 mins to upload an excel file for testing ... I thought it was bit slow .... for large enterprise documents it would be even slower
- I guess it might be a bit faster with an outlook plugin.... what about support for Lotus Notes via a plugin and other platforms.
- Am not sure if WatchDox has tested this tool with different formats. My excel file lost all formatting in the viewer.
- It would be interesting to know if ppt's can also be viewed well in this viewer.
