Iolo Technologies Upgrades System Mechanic Business

By Nathan Eddy

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."
