Staples Teams With Seagate

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Seagate Recovery Services, a Seagate Technology (NYSE: STX) company, today announced an agreement with Staples (Nasdaq: SPLS), the world's largest office products company, to provide data recovery services to Staples’ customers throughout the United States via its in-store EasyTech™ services staff. Through this agreement, Staples’ customers can now take any brand or type of digital media requiring data recovery services to one of more than 1,400 Staples stores across the country. In each store, personnel will determine the specific data recovery needs and provide the appropriate services.

Consumer and business data is increasing at an exponential rate with more digital content being created between the years 2006 to 2008 than ever previously created. Today, the value of data far outweighs the cost of the media and computer systems on which the information is stored. When digital content is lost or inaccessible, customers need reliable, secure and professional recovery services. Staples, working with Seagate Recovery Services through its Security by Staples initiative, now provides a convenient and trusted environment for customers to receive the highest quality data recovery services.

“Staples is constantly striving to provide our customers with a complete offering of convenient, high-value services,” said Rob DiPietro, director of product services at Staples. “Through our work with Seagate Recovery Services, Staples is able to offer our customers comprehensive data recovery solutions and help them protect their valuable digital assets.”
