Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 20, 2009
Laplink® Software, Inc. and Fast-teks, Inc. today officially announced a partnership to support the launch of on-site Windows 7 PC upgrade services to consumers and businesses in North America. Using Laplink's technology, Fast-teks technology professionals will be able to quickly and easily assist end users with upgrading to Windows 7 regardless of their current operating system.
The dilemma Windows XP users are facing will result in many users obtaining outside help to ensure their PC is upgraded quickly and without issue. Many users have yet to understand Microsoft does not support a so-called "in-place upgrade" from XP to Windows 7 - or that Microsoft actually recommends using an IT professional to accomplish the transition from XP to Windows 7.
"The various upgrade scenarios will be very confusing and frustrating for consumers," explained Thomas Koll, Laplink's CEO. "And businesses, especially smaller businesses, will view this negatively. Our objective is to make upgrading to Windows 7 as easy and simple as possible, so users can get all the benefits of this new operating system - which is quite good - without all the hassle."
With software from Laplink and the hands-on technical expertise of Fast-teks, consumers can look forward to adopting Windows 7 quickly and easily.
"Fast-teks understands that most of our customers don't have the time to tackle a Windows 7 upgrade," said Chris Tain, Fast-teks' CTO. "Besides the fact that it can be overwhelming to have to copy all of their files manually to an external drive, install the Windows 7 upgrade, and then reinstall of their data, applications and settings, who wants to worry about possibly losing critical files in the process? Our technicians make the upgrade simple - and they're available for same day service, evenings and even weekends."
Fast-teks currently offers pre-order sales of Windows 7 upgrade licenses along with their upgrade service. Pricing will vary so those interested will need to contact their local Fast-teks franchisee for more details.
A qualified Fast-teks technician to assist with upgrading to Windows 7 can be reached by calling 1-888-917-FAST (3278) or visiting http://www.fastteks.com.
