NXPowerLite 4 is the new version of a well known file optimizing product that reduces the size of Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and JPEG images. The files remain in their original format, with almost no loss of quality. Also NXPowerLite works integrated within Lotus Notes, Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Mail. In this case, NXPowerLite will automatically optimize email attachments as they are sent and the file recipients don't need NXPowerLite to open or edit the attachments.
NXPowerLite 4 is the newest version -- we have reviewed the earlier versions of this product on this site. Read the older reviews for versions NXPowerLite, NXPowerLite 2, NXPowerLite 3, and NXPowerLite 3.6 here.Back
