ALERATEC’S USB 3.0 FLASH-DRIVE DUPLICATOR GAINS COMPETITIVE COST ADVANTAGE
Significant gains in market share and cutting-edge design of Aleratec's 1:16 USB 3.0 Copy Tower Flash Drive Duplicator results in increased distribution and major price reduction.
Chatsworth, CA – March 21, 2013 - Aleratec Inc., announced an economies-of-scale price reduction on its hugely successful, computer-connected SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Flash Drive Duplicator
. The intense distribution and higher sales volume prompted the company to reduce the price from its original ERP of $1,049 to a new ERP of $499.
According to Aleratec, success of the 1:16 USB 3.0 Copy Tower can be attributed to its cutting-edge, yet backward-compatible, design. Although USB 3.0 is rapidly becoming an industry-standard over USB 2.0, not every organization has made the switch. Aleratec's duplicator is compatible with both formats. "We designed a duplicator that meets the future but preserves investments in previous formats," notes Aleratec President and CEO Perry Solomon. "The unit is still compatible with USB 2.0 for those who have not upgraded but it will be ready when they do."
Solomon points out that USB flash drives are becoming an increasingly popular means of storage for large amounts of data. Businesses and organizations that share and store data appreciate the convenience, security, and universal compatibility of USB flash drives for sales presentations, data storage, artwork, and photography files. Aleratec's 1:16 USB 3.0 Copy Tower drastically cuts the labor-intensive chore of data duplication and can copy USB
flash drives from a single source up to 16 at a time. "Saving time and labor costs is critical in today's environment," says Solomon. "A high-speed USB duplicator goes a long way in promoting productivity and gives professionals a quick and reliable way to duplicate flash drives
The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Flash Drive Duplicator also includes the Aleratec's USB Duplication Software Suite. The proprietary software lets users choose the way they collect data from a source and duplicate directly from image files or a flash drive. The software also includes a timesaving feature that allows users to easily format flash drives, providing an easy fix for unformatted USB drives. Users can also duplicate from selected files and folders on their hard drive, and name the volumes they create for easier data content identification.
The 1:16 USB 3.0 Copy Tower is compatible with Microsoft Windows® 8, Windows® 7, Microsoft Windows® Vista™ and Microsoft Windows® XP and includes a USB 3.0 cable and USB 3.0 PCIe host adapter.
