It is somewhat being used across the whole organization, along with the departmental/individual basis. It is more so readily available across the whole organization for end-users to choose to install/use on their individual machines.

It addresses the business problem of finding a ZIP/compression solution that works seamlessly across various operating systems, without having to install additional software to use the files that were created by the ZIP program.
  • As was previously mentioned one of the greatest strengths of the program is the versatility of using across multiple platforms or being able to open the corresponding zip files on multiple platforms without having to install additional software.
  • Another strength it has in the the graphical user interface (GUI). It is, and always has been, one of the better ones in the industry, as compared to other compression software.
  • One area of improvement is with regards to pricing and the mass market. Since there is no free options for the software (as compared to some other compression programs), this may be a disadvantage to many organizations that are looking for a low/no-cost solution.
  • Another area of improvement can be to its ability to create the smallest file sizes, as compared to what some other compression programs can do. It is not the top contender in this case, but improvements can be made in the future.
It is well suited to environments that are using multiple platforms, or operating systems. The compatibility of Winzip with various OS's is really good. It is also well suited for organizations that are looking for something that is easy to use from an end-user perspective and doesn't really require training to use.

It is less suited for organizations that need/want a low/no-cost compression solution. This would not be Winzip, as they don't offer any "free" options, only paid one. It is also less suited for environments that need to have a solution that will create the smallest size compression file(s) possible. There are some other competitors on the market that is a bit better than Winzip at doing this.
