MODERN DESKTOP MANAGEMENT
One layered library, one million ways to use it
Modern Desktop Management
Manage one golden image, not thousands of endpoints
SmartDeploy’s unique layered approach enables single image management of Windows and applications. With SmartDeploy, monolithic PC images are logically broken up into separate driver layers, operating system layers, application layers, and user data layers that can all be deployed, upgraded, and managed independently from each other.
Our modern imaging software enables true single-image management. One centralized golden Windows image can be deployed to any PC in your organization, regardless of manufacturer or model. How does your current desktop management or imaging software stack up? See our side-by-side comparisons.
Driver Magic – That’s What We Do
No hassle driver management
The driver layer for your endpoints is managed for you automatically. With over 1500 Platform Packs that supports all major OEM, business class models, SmartDeploy enables you to maintain a single, centralized golden image regardless of the number of computer makes and models you manage.
Each Platform Pack is built by the SmartDeploy team for a specific PC make and model and includes only the drivers needed by that device. Platform Packs are fully customizable, including running custom scripts or tasks such as updating the BIOS. SmartDeploy’s patented device driver injection technology only installs the drivers necessary for the specific PC that is being deployed. This is fundamentally different than traditional imaging software that has an image per model.
Integrated Application Library
Leverage our packaged applications or create your own
SmartDeploy has a library of Application Packs, popular applications that are packaged and ready to deploy to any device, individually or as part of your golden image, or both. For those applications where SmartDeploy is not able to redistribute the software, you can create your own Application Packs for those applications and make them available in the Application Library along with SmartDeploy developed Application Packs.
When a new version of an application is available, the SmartDeploy team packages, updates and tests to make these applications available as soon as possible in the Application Library. To select the Application Pack you want to deploy, simply start typing the name of the application in the Application Library within the management console to choose the Application Pack that you want to deploy.
Manage Endpoints Using the Cloud
Leverage your Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive accounts
Whether trying to do an in-place Windows migration for a home user or doing PC break-fix for a traveling user in a hotel room, you’ll need a way to deliver Windows images, Application Packs, or Platform Packs without a network connection at the endpoint.
SmartDeploy provides the capability of storing and deploying your golden Windows image, software, scripts, and drivers using Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive. Unlike other desktop management solutions, user PCs can be connected via wireless and do not have to be on a corporate network or connected through a VPN.
Remote computers? No problem.
Remote computer imaging
Windows Migration, Windows Updates, PC Break-fix, or Endpoint Recovery without shipping PCs
Our simple Answer File Wizard gathers the information needed to perform a completely silent and unattended, remote installation
Deploy images from anywhere
Leverage your Dropbox, OneDrive, or Google Drive cloud storage to deploy images to remote devices that aren’t on your network.
It’s like SCCM – Just Easier
Take advantage of SCCM-like functionality without the complexity
SCCM is an extremely comprehensive IT management solution that requires significant training and technical experience to evaluate, configure, and maintain. For most companies, several specialized technicians will be required to utilize the full suite of capabilities. These high resource demands can make tackling more strategic IT initiatives difficult since the most experienced IT staff are managing SCCM.
While on par with SCCM functionality, SmartDeploy is simple to learn and easy to use, especially it’s many wizard-driven operations. Now, you can have multiple staff members trained up Windows migration, Windows updates, and all the other use cases provided by SmartDeploy.
