NXPowerLite Watched Folders

Automatically reduce files from scanners or in a workflow

Users, applications and devices often create documents and images that are larger than necessary, leading to issues using or sharing the files. NXPowerLite automatically optimizes files as they’re saved to your network folder(s), compressing them by up to 65% without compromising quality. See how we compress PDF files.
