PC Tools goes direct to retail

09 Dec 10

The retail partnership with Dick Smith follows PC Tools’ entry into New Zealand back in November.

Robert Oostergetel, Director of Sales PC Tools, said, "New Zealand has always been part of our global expansion plans and the acquisition of PC Tools by Symantec has provided us with an opportunity to leverage strong Symantec partner relationships – such as with Dick Smith in New Zealand, to extend our customer reach and improve availability via multiple touch points.”

Oostergetel says there is room in New Zealand for a portfolio that is simple, effective and affordable.

Products launching into Dick Smith include PC Tools Spyware Doctor with Antivirus (NZ$49.95) and PC Tools Registry Mechanic & PC Tools Internet Security (NZ$79.95). Both product comes with a 12 month licence.          

Tim Gunn, Computer Business Manager for Dick Smith said, “Our new partnership with PC Tools has further strengthened our Symantec relationship. We can now offer a wider range of products to meet the full spectrum of our customers’ needs, from the premium through to the price-conscious customer.”
