PC performance and tune-up specialists Iolo Technologies announced an
upgrade to System Mechanic Business, the company’s computer optimization and
maintenance software designed for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The
solution supports both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, Vista, and XP and
is designed to work on all varieties of desktops, laptops and netbooks. System
Mechanic Business starts at $79.95 for a five-PC commercial license, and offers
incremental volume discounts to accommodate varying installation sizes.

The system offers more than 40 tools that automatically fix errors, freezes and
crashes, restore speed and performance, and maintain overall stability. There’s
also a range of options for novice and expert users alike, as well as Tune-Up
Definitions, which delivers weekly updates on how to resolve the latest threats
to PC performance.

“System Mechanic Business is an obvious solution in any company’s ongoing
efforts to improve employee productivity and reduce costs in the business
environment,” said Lou DaRe, V.P. of business development at Iolo. “When
business PCs are slow and unstable, they not only reduce worker efficiency and
morale, but lead to premature equipment replacement costs and represent an
unnecessary hassle for IT staff.”

In addition, the new Network Deployment Manager allows system administrators
and IT managers to create automated network installation packages, which can
then be used to deploy System Mechanic Business across some or all PCs on a
network. Administrators can apply varied policy settings for different groups,
customize ActiveCare automatic maintenance preferences, and even enable
silent-installation options, so setup occurs seamlessly in the background
without interrupting workstation users, a company release stated.

“System Mechanic ensures continuous peak performance in workstations of all
ages and uses Iolo’s exclusive patent-pending ActiveCare technology to
automatically carry out critical maintenance and optimization tasks when
employee PCs are not being used, so work is never interrupted,” DaRe explained.
“Computers are thereby kept in continuous peak condition, so that workers can
focus on being productive and IT staff is relieved from costly and
time-consuming requests for troubleshooting and equipment replacement.”
