Schools choose SmartDeploy as best imaging software

While selling SmartDeploy, we have the opportunity to work with a ton of educational institutions. From K-12 school districts to colleges and universities around the world, pinpointing the best imaging software and adopting efficient imaging processes is extremely important.

In addition to Windows migration projects, we’ve found that most schools need to reimage their computer labs frequently to maintain network compliance and security. Additionally, it is imperative that the devices are identical from a configuration perspective.

All of this is to say that broadly, schools need reliable and robust imaging tools. Schools adopt SmartDeploy because Symantec Ghost, KACE K2000, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and other solutions fall short of their needs. The top reasons that education customers choose SmartDeploy as the best imaging software are: Ease of use, single image management, and world-class technical support.

“Basically without SmartDeploy, we would not be able to do our summer project — which is reimaging the ENTIRE school district’s PCs. The convenience of having to maintain just one image and the flexibility of automating the entire image process is invaluable.”
– Wayne Alexander, IT Support Analyst, Hickory Public Schools
