Support.com(R) Premium Technology Services Platform Is Windows(R) 8-Ready

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Support.com (Nasdaq:SPRT), a provider of technology services and software for consumers and small businesses, today announced that its patented, cloud-based Premium Technology Services Platform is Windows 8-ready. The Support.com Premium Technology Services Platform includes service delivery tools, desktop agent software, subscription management and e-commerce capabilities, and a third party integration framework to enable channel partners to rapidly launch a high-quality, consistent and efficient premium services experience for consumers and small businesses.

The Microsoft ® Windows 8 operating system includes significant upgrades and changes from earlier Windows releases, including an all-new touch-centric user interface, a common platform for desktop, notebook and mobile devices, and a new "live tile" app development environment.

The Support.com R&D team has been working with beta and preview releases of Windows 8 starting earlier this year. Included in the platform upgrade are Windows 8-specific performance optimizations and usability tweaks, compatibility upgrades, the ability to remotely control Windows 8 devices and support for the new Windows 8 app tile interface.

Support.com has been working closely with its channel partners to develop and launch programs that build on the release of Windows 8 and new touch-centric devices.

"The technology landscape is evolving rapidly as mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones, grow in popularity. Windows 8 represents a major shift towards touch-centric mobile devices, and creates an opportunity for Support.com and its partners to help consumers and small businesses capitalize on this technology evolution," said Support.com CEO Josh Pickus.
