"Yahoo! wanted to enhance the attachment viewing experience so that the user could view the document without having to leave their inbox."

Every day, Yahoo! Mail users send and receive millions of attachments. The most common ones are either Adobe PDFs or Microsoft Office documents such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint. In order to read these documents, users have to download them and use the corresponding desktop software to open them up.


Yahoo! wanted to enhance the attachment viewing experience so that the user could view the document without having to leave their inbox. Yahoo! needed a trusted solution that they could get to the market quickly.


Accusoft's Prizm Content Connect had the right components to address this use case. Leveraging the core conversion software, this HTML5 compliant viewer was easy to integrate into Yahoo's existing tech stack. Accusoft worked closely with Yahoo! to make sure that the end result is a highly customized, reliable and scalable solution, which places user experience above all and works across all modern browsers. Today, with this solution in place, all Yahoo! Mail users can easily view PDFs or Microsoft Office documents without ever leaving their inbox.
