NXPowerLite 6 integrates seamlessly with Outlook to optimize and compress email attachments
LONDON, January 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Anyone who has worked with large documents knows the frustrations caused by lost or
blocked emails. File bloat is recognised as a growing problem in the IT industry, with
outsized Office documents causing the most issues for email filters and storage.
NXPowerLite Desktop 6 not only excels at compressing the image-heavy Office documents that
Zip barely reduces at all, but makes creating and emailing the smaller files as
straightforward as sending any attachment.
File compression experts Neuxpower [http://www.neuxpower.com ] have released the sixth
major update of their Desktop suite. The new version allows users to compress or
'optimize' bulky Office documents, PDFs and JPEGs by up to 95% in four different ways: (1)
using the application directly, (2) from the Microsoft Office menu, (3) with an email
plug-in that automatically shrinks attached files as they are sent, or (4) in Windows
NXPowerLite [http://www.neuxpower.com/products/nxpowerlite-desktop ] Desktop 6 keeps
up-to-date with new Office releases and file types, slimming down a wider range of files
by more than ever before, but it also places an unprecedented emphasis on user experience.
Neuxpower CEO Mike Power commented, 'Our philosophy has always been that a product
designed to make life easier should be as simple and unobtrusive to use as possible. We've
really strived to achieve that with the new Desktop version. It's now more effective at
reducing files than ever, especially PDF files. It also integrates much better with
Outlook, has 14 fewer warning alerts, and the alerts that remain have been completely
re-written to make them easier to understand. We have lots more that we can do, but with
version 6 we've taken a huge step in the right direction.'
Optimization differs from traditional compression software like Zip in that it removes
redundant information and resizes graphics whilst maintaining their quality, rather than
compressing the entire file. As a result it is particularly effective on Office documents
and PDFs that contain images, often shrinking them by anything from 80 to 95 percent. File
extensions remain unchanged, so no decompression is required to view them.
The result is files that look and act exactly the same but are a fraction of their
original size, something that is key to NXPowerLite's appeal. 'Ideally, you shouldn't have
to think about using the software at all. It just runs in the background, optimizing your
files. The only reason you notice it is because you stop having problems with emails
bouncing or running out of storage space.'
