Bellevue, WA – June 27, 2018 – Parallels® (parallels.com), a global leader in cross-platform solutions and creator of industry-leading software for running Windows® applications on a Mac®, today launched Parallels® Toolbox Packs (parallels.com/toolbox) to help people save time on tedious tasks on their PC or Mac so they can accomplish their more important priorities. Parallels Toolbox Presentation Pack, Parallels Toolbox Screen and Video Pack, and Parallels Toolbox Disk and System Pack for Windows or Mac are each “packed” with tools designed to get jobs done with just a click or two.

“People waste too much time searching for solutions to common tasks on their computers that should be able to be accomplished with one click,” said Jack Zubarev, Parallels president. “That’s why our time-saving Parallels Toolbox for Windows and Mac software – which features a comprehensive suite of simple single-purpose tools, with new tools added every few months – is so loved by our customers. Now, people whose computing tasks involve presentations, screen and video work, or disk and system optimization, can get Parallels Toolbox Packs, which each feature a collection of one-click tools tailored for their needs.”

Sean Bugler, a Parallels Toolbox customer and cloud solutions architect for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in San Francisco, said, “Do Not Disturb, Hide Desktop, and Presentation Mode make my work life so much easier. Frankly, I don’t know of any application that does a fraction of what Parallels Toolbox is capable of. It’s the depth of usefulness that made this a no-brainer. I’m constantly figuring out new ways to put the tools to work.”
