  SEOUL, South Korea, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Thinkfree, a Hancom company, announced today the availability of Thinkfree DocsConverter on AWS Marketplace. Built to meet the needs of a wide range of organizations – including cloud service providers and web based solution providers – DocsConverter quickly converts Microsoft Office documents to formats suitable for viewing on the web – including PDF, HTML, TXT, JPG, and PNG formats. Thinkfree DocsConverter has simple APIs that can be easily called from existing web and mobile applications to enable instantly-viewable documents.   The popularity of solutions built on AWS is expanding, and web service developers and SaaS providers need easy way to implement document conversion from proprietary formats – such as .docx, .xlsx, or pptx – to formats that anyone could view instantly in a web browser. Custom document conversion systems could be built using commercial or open source desktop applications, but such systems are neither designed nor optimized to run in a server environment with stability and scalability. Thinkfree DocsConverter provides AWS customers with the ability to implement document conversion capabilities – with full control over scalability and security – into their services and workplaces with single click.   “The availability of Thinkfree DocsConverter on AWS Marketplace is a big step towards the idea of universal access to information,” says Bruno Lowagie, Chief Strategy Officer of Thinkfree. “Information that mobile ISVs and service providers want to share – both internally and externally – but that until now has been locked up in proprietary document formats can now be published quickly and easily for universal consumption.”   “Thinkfree DocsConverter makes it easy for our customers and partners to incorporate Office document conversion functionality into their infrastructures and solutions,” says Steve Koliha, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “The Thinkfree DocsConverter server is available for immediate purchase and deployment in Marketplace.”   Adds Bruno, “With Thinkfree DocsConverter on AWS, all the headaches previously associated with custom conversion systems are gone. Click. Deploy. Publish. It’s that easy.”   Product Availability and Pricing Thinkfree DocsConverter is available today through the AWS Marketplace. Pricing varies by subscription terms and the underlying AWS instance types one selects. Visit the Thinkfree DocsConverter page on AWS Marketplace for information about server configurations and pricing.   Thinkfree customers who have already licensed DocsConverter but who would like to apply that license within AWS can take advantage of a customizable “bring your own license” option.
