Walling Data agreed to keep the school discount that amounted in a very low price, plus they promised to provide technical support free of charge.
Newton, NC (PRWEB) May 20, 2010
John Meinzinger, IT director, jokes that he "is the computer department" at Riverside Christian School (RCS), a small private school in Yakima, WA. He is one man in charge of 140 workstations used by 70 teachers and staff members and 480 students, so his daily to-do list can get quite long and tedious. Therefore he is all ears to anything that will save time and money. So, when he heard that AVG Anti-Virus cost less and was easier to manage than other security products, he was practically already sold.
AVG Anti-Virus Wins in Speed and Price
About five years ago, RCS was still running Windows 98 on many of its machines and the anti-virus product Mr. Meinzinger was using stopped supporting Windows 98.
Towards the end, he noticed the other anti-virus product was making his already slow machines even slower.
He was forced to find a new anti-virus solution.
He continued, "I heard AVG had a smaller footprint and was affordable. Turns out, that was true. When we compared it to the product out there, nothing could match AVG Anti-Virus in speed and price."
Top Notch Customer Service from his new vendor of choice Walling Data
Meinzinger has had no complaints about AVG Anti-Virus over the last five years. So, when it came time to renew, he quickly approached AVG directly to make the purchase.
"AVG suggested finding a reseller and renewing with them. That's when we found Walling Data, an excellent company that sells online security products. Walling Data agreed to keep the school discount that amounted in a very low price, plus they promised to provide technical support free of charge."
With the already great experience of using AVG Anti-Virus under his belt he had no issue choosing Walling Data as his new supplier of security solutions given their extensive experience with the product line.
Walling Data is North America's highest volume distributor of AVG products, and provides free and unlimited pre- and post-sales support on all products. Mr. Meinzinger is still awed to get such upstanding service from a software vendor.
"Most software vendors don't offer free technical support, and if they do, it is only by email and they are slow to respond. Typically their suggestions for working through problems are cumbersome and unpractical. But, Walling Data couldn't be more different - their customer service really is top notch." Today, Riverside is running AVG Anti-Virus 9.0 on its servers and computers.
"When we recently upgraded to 9.0, I started using the central admin feature. It is a real step up from before. I like to be able to check up on all workstations from my computer and see when they were updated, if any have viruses and malware and when they were remedied."
