Support.com is a provider of technology and services for small businesses and consumers alike and the company announced earlier this week that it has released a version of its software that is ready to be implemented on Microsoft Windows 8. Specifically, the cloud based Premium Technology Services Platform is Windows 8 ready.
Support.com’s Premium Technology Services Platform has tools that include a desktop agent, subscription management capabilities and compatibilities with e-commerce applications. The tool also has high level third party compatibility so that channel partners can quickly and easily launch the high quality solutions for small businesses and individuals who want to take advantage of this software.
Microsoft (News - Alert) 8 is a significant change from the other operating systems put out there by Microsoft because it takes advantage of the latest in touchscreen technology as well as the “live tile” application development system. Microsoft has also made their Windows 8 be more of a common platform for all the devices that are running the operating system, whether that means a desktop computer, a laptop or a mobile device such as the slate and even their latest smartphones.
Support.com was able to work with beta releases of Windows 8 in order to tailor their special kinds of software to the brand new operating system. Because of this, their software platform has features that are specific to this operating system, making it that much easier to use and that much more powerful for people who are actually trying to use their software on a Windows 8 device.
“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.
