— A COMPREHENSIVE PORTABLE MIS/IT SOLUTION TO KEEP PCS RUNNING SMOOTH AND ERROR-FREE
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, November 30, 2004 — iolo technologies, LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of software products designed to enhance the performance and security of PCs running the Microsoft Windows operating systems, today announced the release of its suite of corporate-ready PC system maintenance tools — System Mechanic 5 Mobile Toolkit. Running directly from a CD with no installation required, the product allows those in charge of large networks to collectively maintain computers from a central location, and consultants who service multiple clients to carry a portable set of tools, performing local system maintenance without the concern of residual software installation. System Mechanic 5 Mobile Toolkit will ship to retail stores nationwide the week of November 29, 2004.
Providing the right tools to secure a PC, perform a variety of critical system maintenance tasks, and ensure ongoing reliability, the Mobile Toolkit is a comprehensive way for technicians, consultants, VAR’s, and MIS/IT administrators in small to mid-sized organizations to maintain any number of PCs without the need to individually install software that may be prone to misuse if left available to inexperienced personnel.
System Mechanic 5 Mobile Toolkit can be easily transported and used on any number of computers by simply inserting the CD into each machine and performing the services or maintenance required. Technicians can move from system to system, perform maintenance on each PC, and then move on to the next PC. Or use the Mobile Toolkit over a network by sharing the CD-ROM drive on one computer and running it directly from any workstation. One Mobile Toolkit CD provides an unlimited license to use the software on any number of computers.
“Today’s IT administrators and computer technicians are taxed with removing risks at reduced costs. System Mechanic 5 Mobile Toolkit is a cost effective suite of functional, easy to use tools that will improve PC performance and reliability while eliminating the risks associated with installing powerful or dangerous software on each computer within an organization,” said Scott Yenor, chief information officer of iolo technologies, LLC. “It’s the perfect way to keep a large number of systems in top shape while maintaining control over what is actually installed locally.”
