Compress Scanned PDFs

A watched folders solution to large scanned PDFs

Scanners capture unnecessarily large, high resolution raster images to output PDF files. NXPowerLite automatically optimizes scanned PDFs as they're saved to your network folder, compressing them by up to 65% without compromising quality. See how we compress PDF files.

Watched Folder Solution
“NXPowerLite gives us files that are smaller, more usable and easier to email than the originals. We have also been very happy with the visual quality of the optimized files and our users have been unable to tell the difference between the original and the optimized version.”
— Dan Stewart, Director of Information Systems, Antelope Valley Union High School District

Key Benefits

It’s a simple way to avoid these common user productivity drains caused by large scanned PDFs:

Sending email attachments
Avoid email bounce or the need to break up documents and stay under mailbox limits.
Printing documents
No need to adjust quality settings to print optimized PDFs.
Uploading to libraries
Indexing and uploading times to document management systems are reduced.
External network access
Smaller files are faster to download and open when accessing remotely.

“NXPowerLite is the best software I've ever purchased... It has saved me thousands and a lot of time.”
The Bishop's Stortford High School

“We use Microsoft Office, and have a fairly inefficient program to convert these documents to PDF. We’ve saved about 60 percent more space with NXPowerLite.”
Caerphilly City Council
