Performance optimization software leader continues to support the work of local community organizations
LOS ANGELES, CA – November 17, 2011 – iolo technologies, recently named the fastest-growing company in the U.S. and Canada by the International Business Awards, today announced a donation of its System Mechanic software products to Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Pasadena Cancer Support Community.
The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with more than 1,000 members that engages cyclists across the county through advocacy, education and outreach programs. Founded in 1998, LACBC brings together the diverse bicycling community in a united mission to improve the bicycling environment and quality of life in the region.
“In our offices, we have a lot of slow, underperforming computers that have greatly benefited from using iolo’s award-winning System Mechanic”, said Carol Feucht, members and communications manager at LACBC. “With System Mechanic, we can continue our organization’s green efforts by reducing our own e-waste consumption. The software helps extend the life of our existing PCs and keep them in usable condition – and out of landfills – for longer.”
Cancer Support Community Pasadena (CSC-P) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps people affected by cancer to enhance their health and well-being through participation in professional programs of emotional support, education and hope. The Cancer Support Community’s programs are open to people with cancer and their loved ones, regardless of the type of cancer they are suffering from or where they are on their cancer journey.
“At CSC-P, our computers are a vital means of communication with our participants, staff and volunteers,” says Hunter Forsyth, director of individual and corporate giving. “System Mechanic’s easy-to-use interface and patented automatic maintenance technology have resolved our issues with our sluggish computers, giving us more time to focus on our participants rather than our computers.”
“Nonprofit organizations have more pressing issues to worry about than computer maintenance. A slow, clogged-up computer leads to wasted time and money, which is something nonprofits cannot afford,” said JJ Schoch, VP of marketing at iolo technologies. “We are excited that iolo’s System Mechanic can return these local organizations’ computers back to their optimal condition, enabling them to fully focus on their worthwhile missions.”
Since 2008, iolo technologies has been engaged in a wide-ranging charitable and environmental campaign, focusing on facilitating computer donations to materials reuse organizations through DriveScrubber, its award-winning secure data removal software, as well as on helping nonprofit organizations make the most of their computers with System Mechanic. Over the past year alone the company has donated thousands of copies of its software to a broad range of local, national, and global charitable organizations.
