Walling Data Helps Illinois School District Convert to Avast!

Hickory, North Carolina (PressExposure) April 28, 2009 -- Chris Franzen, technology coordinator for the Nokomis School District in Nokomis, IL manages any project, issue and question related to technology among the district’s 700 students and faculty members. He’s a one man show, which means that he never has a dull moment and has to make smart decisions about managing his time. When he joined the district last year and learned that it was running an outdated antivirus solution on its network, finding new antivirus software topped his to-do list.

“The network was running an antique edition of Norton Antivirus, which was not centrally managed, meaning I had to check over 310 computers and 10 servers weekly to make sure the software was updated,” Franzen recalled. “That process demanded too much of my time and I was eager to find a product to replace Norton.”

Fate Intervenes Last month Franzen was perusing a forum for school network administrators when he learned that value-added distributor Walling Data was offering a special promotion to schools on his personal favorite antivirus solution, avast!

“I didn’t need to be convinced that avast! antivirus was the best solution to replace Norton because I already used it on my home PC and recommend it to all my friends and family,” said Franzen. “avast! is a great product and perfect fit for the school district. It’s strong enough to keep threats at bay, it’s affordable and above all, it’s centrally managed and I can customize it completely to my liking. That’s a nice feature that other antivirus products often don’t offer.”

Although Franzen was sure that avast! antivirus was the best fit for the Nokomis School District, he needed to convince others to this was the time to make the change. “Actually, we were not slated to make any software purchases until this summer, but Walling Data was offering such an unbelievable value on avast! that the deal was just too sweet to pass up,” Franzen said. “So, I approached the superintendent about the deal and explained all the product’s benefits. That’s how I got approval to move ahead with the purchase of avast! antivirus enterprise suite.”

A day later, Franzen called Walling Data to place the order and joined the more than 75 million registered users of avast! antivirus.

Unbeatable Prices and Customer Service Walling Data is the only value-added distributor of avast! antivirus products to provide free, unlimited, domestic phone and remote support for all of its customers. This service was something Frazen raved about.

“The best thing about purchasing from Walling Data is the support team that is willing to help you as much and often as you need it,” Franzen said. “They installed avast! on our entire network for me and I followed along as it went. It deployed beautifully on all our Vista and XP machines.”

He continued, “The sales and support team at Walling Data replies very quickly to emails, helped me out with any issue or question, and went above and beyond what you’d expect from a software distributor. And to top it off, their prices for schools are unbeatable.”
