Laplink's research shows that during an average PC migration, over 90% of previously installed applications are successfully transferred automatically to a new PC when using PCmover.
Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
Laplink® today announced that recent research concluded a typical consumer saves over $160 by using PCmover® to set up a new PC – not to mention the hours of time saved and the stress avoided.
The holiday season is an ideal opportunity for saving money when buying a new PC; however, the expense of replacing software programs lost during a migration due to forgotten serial numbers or missing installation media is not often taken into consideration. With Laplink’s PCmover, consumers avoid the cost of rebuying old software and the time it takes to reinstall programs.
PCmover is the only software that automatically moves programs, files, and settings from an old PC to a new one. It is the only Microsoft®-recommended migration solution capable of transferring everything to a new PC.
“Laplink’s research shows that during an average PC migration using PCmover, over 90% of previously installed applications are successfully transferred automatically to the new PC,” said Laplink CEO, Thomas Koll. “We also found that PCmover provided an average savings of more than $160 compared to repurchasing software.”
Laplink reports demand for PCmover has increased sharply over the past year, keeping it the top-selling migration product, which Koll attributed in part to Microsoft.
“Microsoft has significantly deprecated Windows® Easy Transfer in Windows 8.1,” added Koll. “That, combined with Microsoft recommending PCmover plus the fact that we save consumers significant time and money, has resulted in PCmover’s continued strong growth.”
Windows Easy Transfer does not transfer applications, application settings, nor Windows or system settings – just data. And transferring that data must be accomplished using an external hard drive or cloud system, instead of using a simpler and more cost-effective cable or network connection.
PCmover supports the direct transfer of all data, settings, and even programs from an old PC to a new one. It includes many other unique features such as free transfer assistance, easy undo, and full selectivity.
