bitWrapper® Compression for Windows, Mac and Linux

bitWrapper® is our compression tool that allows you to optimize any kind of digital content. bitWrapper® achieves compression rates of 20 – 70% in addition to what common compression (ZIP, RAR, CAB) would offer you. So even if you already compress your files, bitWrapper® generally achieves an impressive 20 – 70% on top of that.

bitWrapper® is compatible with all popular operating systems and installers. It acts as a wrapping tool, compressing the installer whilst allowing it to operate freely as if it were unwrapped. The key difference is that it creates a significantly smaller and more efficient version of your product or file.

In combination with our getPlus® digital logistics applications, bitWrapper® compressed files can be simultaneously downloaded, extracted and installed. This results in an efficient, automated and user-friendly file transfer system. With bitWrapper® your company will have more satisfied users and complete more downloads while lowering your bandwidth costs.
