Ontrack addresses recession-conscious marketplace with holiday specials

Ontrack’s software maintains systems and protects data

MINNEAPOLIS, December 12, 2001 – As manufacturers forecast conservative trends in new PC purchasing this holiday season and retailers experience the woes of a recession, ONTRACK Data International, Inc. (NASDAQ: ONDI) is now offering special online discounts to shoppers who wish to extend the life of their PC instead of buying new. Ontrack is making it more affordable than ever to purchase the right software tools at www.ontrack.com to make systems continue to deliver at a peak performance.

“There are new reasons for PC users to take better care of their systems,” said Jim Reinert, director of Ontrack worldwide software. “Most novice users and even many long-time PC users are unaware of the dangers that can slow their systems down or corrupt their data,” Reinert said. “By offering holiday discounts on our PC utility software during the month of December, we give PC users the ability to maintain their systems’ performance while also preserving the integrity and privacy of their personal data.”

Ontrack’s holiday gifts available online this season include:

  • Ontrack® SystemSuite™ 4.0 is the perfect present for that computer user on your list. Compatible with Microsoft® Windows® XP, Ontrack SystemSuite 4.0 helps keep a PC working as well as it did the day it was bought.
