Acronis, Computer Troubleshooters Sign Distribution Agreement

April 05, 2007, Paris, France - Acronis EMEA (www.acronis.com/en-gb/), a technological leader in storage management software, announced that Computer Troubleshooters, a worldwide franchiser of computer technical support with more than 450 locations in 22 countries, has selected Acronis True Image as its backup and disaster recovery application of choice. The agreement calls for Computer Troubleshooters' franchisees to be able to provide Acronis True Image to their customers and use the application as part of their support services.

"Our clients range from consumers to small- and mid-sized businesses," said Chip Reaves, co-founder of Computer Troubleshooters USA. "These corporate clients require the same high level of data security as any enterprise user and they get that high level of security from the Acronis solutions."

"I've been using Acronis True Image and Acronis Disk Director for years," said Russ Spriggs, president of SCT Solutions, a Computer Troubleshooters franchisee based in Chesterfield, VA. "They're the best value in the marketplace and far superior to anything Symantec has to offer."

"You don't need to be running a Fortune 500 company to require a bullet-proof disaster recovery solution," said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis. "Government regulations hold owners of SMBs to the same high level of compliance as any enterprise, so a reliable backup and disaster recovery policy is essential."
