Efficient software distribution with Install.Desk: Flexible, easy and inexpensive

Install.Desk supports you with automated software installations
and updates without affecting the operational processes on your employees' clients!

Flexible timing

The execution of the installation jobs can be determined by yourself - either immediately after execution, at a specific time or after restarting the target clients. Failed jobs can be repeated if desired.

Comprehensive history

The course of each distribution order is saved in the history. The results can be evaluated individually, e.g. by period, target device, installation status, installation job, etc.

Easy-to-use interface

Distribution groups and distribution packages can be easily created on the screen using drag & drop, and distribution orders can be created with just a few mouse clicks.

Central Control Station

The management console shows at a glance which distribution tasks are scheduled, ongoing or completed. For each distribution order, the status, the availability of the target devices and the distribution progress are easy to see in the form of traffic light functions.

Discovery function

Install.Desk shows the computers in your network environment, specifically those that have not yet been imported into Install.Desk. The computers can easily be transferred to Install.Desk from the Windows network environment or from the Active Directory.
