balesio Squeezes Fat Files with New FILEminimizer Office

Steinhausen, Switzerland (PRESS RELEASE – June 25, 2009) – balesio, an innovator in superior file compression software, formally introduced the availability of FILEminimizer Office, powerful new software which reduces the size of all Microsoft Office files by up to 98 percent. This allows individuals and professionals to much more easily, quickly, and inexpensively send and store large and media-rich files created in Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel. FILEminimizer Office achieves unparalleled file size reduction via its intelligent file compression software technique which compresses pictures and embedded objects while still preserving the original file format and quality.

Most professionals deal with a host of Office files such as rich Word documents, fat PowerPoint files or massive Excel spreadsheets. These files can get bogged down or blocked by email policies. They can also tax the capacity of computers and email systems that have storage limitations and policies. For instance, a 20 MB PowerPoint file that won’t make it through email systems can be easily and quickly compressed with FILEminimizer Office to a few megabytes or less for easy delivery and storage.

“Fat files can create business chaos. In today’s era of increased media-rich graphics, color, complex spreadsheets and high resolution photography, file sizes are rapidly getting out of control, jamming up traditional sending mechanisms, and stuffing file folders with hefty, unmanageable files. From bounce-backs to bottled-necked networks, these mega size email attachments are frustrating professionals across all industries,” said Christoph Schmid, Business Development Director at balesio. “FILEminimizer Office helps address ‘fat file frustration’ by using a unique compression technique that can quickly and conveniently squeeze a file down to a practical size without a loss of quality to the file.”

Unlike other alternative compression or sending methods, FILEminimizer makes it a snap on both sides to send and receive an email attachment. With one click Pack and Go ease, a simple and intuitive interface, and integration into your Outlook email, the software makes it a breeze to optimize and send much smaller files. FILEminimizer does not burden the recipient to download software, decompress, or visit an unfamiliar link to retrieve, edit, or view the optimized files in their original format.

Optimized FILEminimizer Office files are much smaller, safer and ideal for sharing and sending, with the integrity of the file’s content maintained. Inboxes, servers and networks are relieved, and loading time is accelerated.
