Nashua, NH (PRWEB) October 7, 2004
imagine LAN, Inc., a leading provider of software applications for flash drives to vendors, corporate customers and individual users, today announced the introduction of Sync-Along v1.0 Â a file synchronization application for USB flash drives and other portable storage devices (iPodÂ®, portable media center devices, mini hard drives, and more).
Sync-Along software installs directly to a USB flash drive (or other portable storage device) and allows users to easily synchronize files (documents, pictures, music, video, etc.) between two or more PCs. ÂThere's been a significant increase multi-PC households as consumers add new desktops, notebooks and even Tablet PCs to the home.Â, explains Jan Olsen, vice president of marketing and sales for imagine LAN, ÂWe live in a world of multiple PCs - one or more in the home, one at the office, and then thereÂs the laptop that gets lugged around. And if youÂre a day extender or road warrior, you know the importance of being able to synchronize information between systems Â effortlessly.Â
The Sync-Along software lets users set up a profile of all the folders and files the want to keep in sync. With Sync-Along, users can personalize their profile by selecting folders to sync, including or excluding sub-folders, filtering by date, and filtering by file type. Once theyÂve personalized their profile, Sync-along automatically uses those preferences each time the user wants to sync.
Sync-Along also provides a dual-pane display of files on the PC and on the USB flash drive, and uses color-coded text and symbols to indicate exactly what needs to be updated at each location. In addition to manually starting the synchronization process from the simple-to-use interface, users can elect to have the synchronization process start automatically each time their USB flash drive is ÂpluggedÂ into an enabled PC. This feature can be enabled on an unlimited number of PCs.
In addition to their complete Sync-Along solution for individual users, imagine LAN is offering Sync-Along to its OEM and large corporate customers with a customizable interface featuring a choice of "skin" styles and colors, and the option to add the customerÂs logo or brand to the Sync-Along user interface. Custom-branded Sync-Along software, paired with a USB flash drive, provides an ideal offering for the consumer and home/home office segments. It would also be well suited for businesses and incentive/advertising specialty markets as a unique business gift or premium.
