SmartDeploy vs. ManageEngine OS Deployer

ManageEngine OS Deployer
You can use OS Deployer to image remote machines — but without integration with cloud service providers, devices must be connected to your corporate network. And if you want to deploy software, view device information, or execute postdeployment tasks, you need ManageEngine Endpoint Central.
SmartDeploy lets you handle Windows imaging, deployment, and postdeployment tasks on local and remote devices from one platform. Deliver OS images, apps, drivers, and scripts using offline media, local networks, or the cloud. SmartDeploy also maintains a library of 1,500+ prebuilt driver packs so that you don’t have to track them down yourself.
