Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Kivuto Solutions Inc., the global leader in complex digital distribution solutions and Parallels Inc., a global leader in cloud services enablement and desktop virtualization software, today announced the signing of an expanded digital distribution agreement to include countries in Europe and Asia Pacific. The agreement expands their relationship to enable the secure delivery of Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac, the latest version of the best-performing and No. 1-selling solution for running Windows applications on a Mac without rebooting, to a larger academic community in select countries around the world. The larger global expansion will benefit consumers as well as online retailers and resellers in the academic space.
Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac empowers students to successfully accomplish everything they need to do on a Mac by enabling them to run multiple operating systems (OS) – from OS X to Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, Chrome OS and more – without rebooting. Parallels Desktop 8 opens up a world of opportunity by allowing users to choose how they want Mac and Windows to collaborate. From having the familiar Windows desktop in full screen to having Windows run invisibly, Parallels Desktop 8 delivers powerful performance to run Windows applications, even graphic-intensive ones for engineering and architecture, like they were made for a Mac. Use Mountain Lion’s Dictation feature in Windows apps, organize Windows “Metro-style” applications in Launchpad, and enjoy the brilliant Retina-display resolution in Windows applications.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Kivuto to Europe and Asia Pacific to provide students the power and performance of our full-featured Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac software at an affordable price of $39.99 so they can work and play hard with their favorite Windows software on their Mac,” said Kim Johnston, vice president of marketing for Parallels.
“We have worked with Parallels for more than five years now, and are excited to offer the latest version of their award-winning desktop virtualization software at a substantial academic discount beyond North and South America through our Global eStore and school-based WebStores. Our global community, comprised of millions of academic users, will benefit greatly from this new version which is now available in more territories,” states Gustavo Sanchez, Senior Manager, Marketing Services. He added, “this agreement will also allow us to serve the academic reseller channel that wishes to provide secure electronic downloads of this great software to their clients using our web services; we have designed a comprehensive solution for Parallels to cover their entire digital distribution strategy.”
