Scribd in Cooperation with SAP AG Announces Largest Implementation of Document Reader Technology
More Than 18,000 API Users -- Including Majority of Online Jobs Sites – Integrate Scribd Document Sharing SAN FRANCISCO – March 30, 2010 – Scribd, the largest social publishing and reading site in the world, announced in cooperation with SAP AG, the leader in business management software, the largest implementation (to date) of its document reader technology. SAP is integrating Scribd's technology into the SAP® StreamWork™ application released today. SAP joins more than 18,000 companies and developers that have implemented Scribd's open application programming interface (API) to provide customers an easy way to access, share and store documents on the web. "We've essentially created virtual document rooms for tens of thousands of companies," said Jared Friedman, Scribd's CTO and co-founder. "Through our API, we have millions of customers using our technology, which extends our customer base well beyond Scribd.com." "Integrating Scribd’s document reader technology helps give users of SAP StreamWork transparency into their files without leaving the SAP StreamWork environment,” said David Meyer, senior vice president of Emerging Technologies, SAP. “This way they naturally focus on the goal at hand – the work being done – and are simply more effective." The Virtual Document Room The majority of career sites, including Monster.com, now use Scribd's technology to show resumes and other documents directly from their sites. Other Scribd API users include large legal information companies like FindLaw, Internet companies such as Posterous and academic organizations like Educause. "The beauty of Scribd's API is that the technology seamlessly integrates into our blogging platform, which makes for a great user experience," said Sachin Agarwal, CEO and cofounder Posterous. Scribd API users get all the benefits of Scribd's technology while keeping their users on their site. Their users can turn any file format -- including Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and PDF -- into a web document and instantly share plans, memos, sales collateral, manuals and other written content. They can also send and access the documentation on most mobile devices. For more information about Scribd's API, please go to
