iolo technologies Partners with Tech Data
Award-winning PC performance software products now available via Tech Data’s distribution channel
LOS ANGELES, CA – November 2, 2010 – iolo technologies, the PC performance experts behind award-winning System Mechanic, has partnered with leading technology distributor Tech Data Corporation to bring its entire line of award-winning products to an even wider and more varied business and reseller audience.
The new distribution agreement allows iolo’s flagship System Mechanic®, the #1 best-selling PC tune-up software, according to NPD, in the U.S., Canada, U.K, France and Benelux countries, to enter the SMB market via Tech Data’s vast distribution and VAR channel. System Mechanic Business, the small and medium business version of System Mechanic, has been available directly from iolo since last June and enjoyed strong initial sales success, with successful deployments in government agencies and small businesses across the country. The new expanded distribution now allows iolo technologies to fully support and leverage the channel and profitably capitalize on the growing demand for business PC performance solutions.
“The reseller channel has proven to be an important part of iolo’s exponential growth in the last year, contributing to our designation by the American Business Awards as the fastest-growing U.S. company for the second year in a row,” said Lou DaRe, iolo’s VP of business development. “Tech Data provides us a more effective way to reach this important channel with our patent-pending, innovative PC performance technology. We at iolo are happy to provide our important VAR, MSP and reseller partners attractive margins and marketing support.”
“Many small businesses have yet to commit to a full PC refresh, and that creates opportunities for resellers who can deliver solutions that enhance the performance of their customers’ existing PCs,” said Tech Data Vice President, Software Product Marketing Stacy Nethercoat. “iolo’s PC tune-up software is designed to do just that.”
Tech Data will distribute iolo’s full product line, which also includes System Mechanic Professional®, an all-in-one suite of both PC performance and security tools; Search and Recover™, a powerful data recovery tool for retrieving deleted files and photos; DriveScrubber®, the #1 best-selling utility for permanently erasing data from hard drives; as well as System Shield®, performance-focused antivirus and antispyware software.
