LOS ANGELES, CA – Nov 16, 2009 – iolo technologies, the PC tune-up experts recognized as the fastest-growing company in the U.S. by the 2009 American Business Awards,  today announced that System Mechanic®, its flagship PC tune-up software, as well as its complete line of software products, will be distributed in India, the second most populous country in the world. Following a year of aggressive international expansion, iolo’s products are now available across 33 countries and five continents.

iolo technologies’ award-winning products, recently introduced across the Middle East, will reach a rapidly growing computer usage market in India. India has the fourth highest number of internet users in the world, behind the U.S., China, and Japan, [1] and just last year there were eight million new computer users in urban India alone. [2] Additionally, with a population of over 1 billion, an estimated 9 to 33 percent of which is fluent in English, India is considered the world’s second largest English speaking country. [3]

“Nearly 90 percent of home users in India use their computers on a daily basis [4] and almost all computer activity, especially emailing, is done in English” said Kraig Lane, director of international product management at iolo technologies. “In fact, the majority of computers in India operate on English versions of Microsoft’s Windows and iolo’s products can easily and effectively improve their performance, making them run faster, smoother, and safer.”

The complete range of iolo’s products can be purchased in various stores throughout India including Croma, Reliance Digital, Staples, and Xcite, as well as computer retail stores and bookshops.
