Channel partners in Italy get a localized version of BackupAssist

May 13, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Cortex I.T. Labs has just released an Italian language version of BackupAssist v6 that can be downloaded and purchased from their Italian distributor, Achab S.r.l..

"This is an important outcome of a partnership that is working to benefit both our existing channel partners and their customers. New and existing clients will find the Italian version of BackupAssist more intuitive to use and more appealing to buy because the language barrier has been removed. Our channel partners will find it easier to recommend, simpler to deploy and easier to support. Everyone benefits from this initiative," says Andrea Veca, CEO of Achab S.r.l.

"It's exciting that we're delivering an Italian version of BackupAssist through Achab S.r.l and her channel partners. Now that BackupAssist has been adapted to the Italian market, we hope more businesses, schools and government organisations can realise a secure multi-tiered backup strategy that is easy to administer, avoids vendor lock-in and comes at a fraction of the cost of other backup software solutions," said Steven Chua, Business Development Manager for Cortex I.T. Labs.

Since the release of version 6, BackupAssist has continued to grow in popularity, being one of the most cost-effective and reliable Windows backup software products in the small and medium business (SMB) market. The demand for an Italian language version of BackupAssist was only further evidence of this fact.

"We worked very hard on version 6 of BackupAssist, adding many features geared towards simplifying Windows backup for I.T. System Administrators and Service Providers alike, as well as making sure we were compatible with emerging Microsoft products like Windows Hyper-V and Server 2008 R2," commented Linus Chang, CEO and Lead Developer of BackupAssist.
In addition to improving BackupAssist to comply with new Microsoft technologies, the BackupAssist Development Team prides itself on being able to work closely with its distribution partners to make sure that their needs are fulfilled.

"Our distribution partners work hard for us, so we are always attentive when they approach us with a request. This was our third attempt at translating BackupAssist from English to another language, and while each has presented its own challenges, we've thoroughly enjoyed the entire translation process. While of course it would be easier to manage a single English version of BackupAssist, we understand the desire to have software in your native language, and we're very happy to be able to offer another localized version of BackupAssist," added Steven Chua.
The launch of the new Italian language version of BackupAssist is part of an ongoing effort to make the software accessible to more users worldwide, and Cortex I.T. Labs plans to translate the BackupAssist product into even more languages in addition to the English, German, French and Italian translations already available.
