South Africa's major retailers, Game and Dion Wired stores have signed a countrywide distribution deal with Drive Control Corporation (DCC) to supply PC Tools security software solutions.
The PC Tools range of products has achieved many accolades, assuring customers of top quality solutions. The software offers the full spectrum of consumer computing security, from anti-virus, anti-spyware, internet security and firewall software to utility tools, all delivered at an affordable price point,” says Fred Mitchell, Software Division Manager at DCC.
“Since security is often a grudge purchase, affordability is of key concern. However, as the threats that arise from Internet and PC usage continue to proliferate, security has become more important than ever to protect users from cybercrime. PC Tools’ top quality products, which are well recognised by the IT industry, combined with a price point aimed at the budget conscious consumer, makes PC Tools the perfect security solution,” he adds.
By distributing PC Tools products through well-known retailers Game and Dion Wired, DCC is able to not only take advantage of their broad customer base, but also to complement the product offerings of both stores with a niche tool that addresses a gap in the local market for quality, affordable security solutions.
“For consumers, PC Tools is an affordable, easy to use solution. By supplying Game and Dion Wired with these products we are offering consumers greater choice when it comes to selecting a security solution to meet their needs,” says Mitchell.
“As PC Tools is a relatively new product in South Africa, we are still trying to grow awareness of the brand. Large retailers such as Game and Dion Wired have the consumer trust we need to enable us to grow the product. We will also be providing training for staff at both stores to enable them to match products to consumer needs,” he adds.
These solutions are well recognised within the IT industry and have won numerous awards, including Anti Virus Solution of the Year at the 2010 Computing Security Awards for PC Tools AntiVirus 2011, PC World 100 Best Products of 2010 and PC World Best Buy for PC Tools Internet Security 2011. They also won a softwareload Software of the Year 2010 award for PC Tools Registry Mechanic 2011.
Both Game and Dion Wired stores will be stocking PC Tools Antivirus and PC Tools Internet Security products. These are available at a recommended retail price of R89.99 and R119.99 respectively for a three user license, offering excellent value for money.
