BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safe Technologies International, Inc. (OTCBB:SFAZ), a cloud-based provider of mission-critical IT, backup and disaster recovery services, today announced the launch of its Flat-Rate Support Service offering to service the growing number of iPad tablet users.

Christopher Kolb, President of Safe Technologies, commented: "We designed our iPad Support Platform to allow our customers stay connected to their business and simplify their busy lives. Remote technicians use "over-the-air" access technology to set up, install, configure and customize a broad array of applications. As part of the service, we also provide training and troubleshooting. iPads are not simply a novelty; we are seeing broad adoption across both consumer and business segments. iPads are fully functional computers," added Kolb.

Research firm IDC said on Tuesday that 17 million consumer tablets shipped in 2010 according to its Worldwide Quarterly Media Tablet and eReader Tracker. In a press release, the firm also stated that the tablet market's remarkable third-quarter growth of 45% was due almost entirely to sales of Apple's iPad. Looking forward, IDC expects the media tablet market to finish 2010 at nearly 17 million units, and forecasts 44.6 million will ship in 2011, with the U.S. representing nearly 40% of the total. In 2012, IDC forecasts worldwide shipments of 70.8 million units.

"The media tablet market's rapid evolution will continue to accelerate in 4Q10 and beyond with new product and service introductions, channel expansion, price competition and experimentation with new use cases among consumers and enterprises," said IDC's research director in charge of mobile connected devices, Susan Kevorkian. 

Highlights of the service include:

  • Remotely "take over" iPads and eliminate step-by-step phone support
  • Easily view current settings, transfer files, deploy scripts, chat, and resolve issue
  • Streamline the troubleshooting process between iPad's, PCs and Macs
  • Help users anywhere, anytime, with advanced remote control technology
  • Install Smart Software client on your PC and iPad
  • Enable back-up of iPad data to PC
  • Sync calendars e-mail & contacts on iPad and PC
  • Troubleshoot sync software issues
  • Set up e-mail, calendar, and phone book on iPad using a remote control client
  • Set up connection to Wi-Fi network

The service is offered on a one-time basis for $49.99 in addition to an Advanced Support package which offers a year's worth of 24X7 remote technical support for only $99.99.
