November 16, 2005 (London, UK) – Nuvotech has just launched its popular screenwriting software Movie Outline on Protocall Technologies’ SoftwareToGo network, which will expand its digital distribution channel through CompUSA, TigerDirect and Amazon, and enable point of sale product access through in store On-Demand technology.
The SoftwareToGo system is a new approach to selling software, allowing customers to review software features and to then purchase shrink-wrapped software directly from a software display and delivery kiosk within the CompUSA and TigerDirect store. SoftwareToGo allows retailers to offer thousands of software titles for sale in a 15 sq. ft. area that would otherwise take up 5,000 sq. ft. of retail selling space.
“Although we also manufacture and distribute our own physical product, we have realized for a long time that digital distribution and on-demand technology was the way forward,” says Dan Bronzite, CEO of Nuvotech. “Our priority is giving potential customers as much access as possible to our software and SoftwareToGo will do this, adding another channel to our current distribution programme of both physical and digital sales through our website and reseller network.”
As well as in store sales, SoftwareToGo gives TigerDirect a real-time on-demand software production capability through its website, enabling the company to offer 24-hour shipment for software orders. From the TigerDirect website, orders are transmitted electronically to the SoftwareToGo production units, which produce the software CDs complete with original manufacturer’s full-color packaging, certificate of authenticity and unique user ID. The orders are shipped same-day by Protocall Technologies directly to TigerDirect’s customers.
