What is Polaris Viewer used for?

On my new Android phone, Polaris Viewer is included, takes up a lot of storage space, and cannot be deleted. Why can’t it be deleted, is it some sort of necessary app? What is it used for?

Here's a description from an app site:

"Polaris® Viewer is the easiest and strongest office products designed for mobile devices. Anytime, anywhere, you can easily use various kinds of documents such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe PDF, with only several tabs, and organize your data fast and do your presentation excellently."

It's a doc/pdf viewer. I guess they also want to you install Polaris Office 5. I still consider it bloatware, but at least it has some potential for usefullness.
