iolo technologies Unveils a New Italian Version of System Mechanic®

Following successful localized launches in the UK, France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, the world’s #1 best-selling PC tune-up software is now available in Italy

LOS ANGELES, CA – Sept 2, 2009 – iolo technologies, LLC, recently named the fastest-growing company in the U.S. by the American Business Awards, today released an Italian language version of System Mechanic, its flagship PC tune-up software. This release follows the significant success of other recently released local language versions including French, Dutch and German.

System Mechanic is the #1 best-selling PC tune-up software in the US, Canada, France and Benelux countries according to NPD and similar sources, and has been used by more than 23 million users worldwide to tune up more than 70 million computers. While the software commands 66 percent of the PC tune-up market in the US and 75 percent in Canada, more than 50 percent of its users come from countries where English is not the national language.

“Following the successful launches of French, Dutch and German versions, the new Italian System Mechanic allows Italian speakers to tune up their PCs in the comfort of their own language, with greater enjoyment and further increased ease of use,” said Kraig Lane, director of international product management at iolo technologies. “Italian represents our fourth event in a much larger series of localized launches planned over the coming months, each of which will introduce local language versions of our award-winning products to additional countries around the world.”

The Italian-language version of System Mechanic may be purchased throughout Italy at retail stores such as Mediamarkt, FNAC, Wellcome and Computer Discount or online. The retail price for System Mechanic is 39.95 euros (€39.95) and allows the product to be used on up to three PCs.
