Tesco introduces low-cost PC software into stores


As we highlighted earlier this month, Tesco has launched a new range of PC software, developed by the shopping giant in association with Formjet, with the aim of rivalling big boys Microsoft, Symantec and McAfee.

Six titles have been released. Tesco Complete Office (£19.97) is an office suite not a million miles away from Microsoft, with the ability to edit existing Word, Excel and Access files with Tesco Write, Tesco Spreadsheet, Tesco Database and Tesco Presentation. Tesco Internet Security (£19.97) offers protection from viruses, spyware, hackers and phishing, with free updates for a year.

Tesco Antivirus & Antispyware (£9.97) is a slimmed-down security program, Tesco PhotoRestyle (£9.97) is photo-editing and vector drawing software (fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop), Tesco Personal Finance (£9.97) will help you to organise your finances and Tesco Easy Record (£9.97) copies CDs and DVDs – not that Tesco are encouraging that.

All come with online technical support. Tesco Software will be available in over 100 Tesco stores nationwide from October, with plans to roll out across the UK over the following 12 months.
