A busy office will slow down tremendously if the computer system isn’t effectively updated. It will come to a complete standstill if the computer system crashes. And chaos happens when employees can’t efficiently access data in house, remotely, or from different sites across the country.
For companies requiring frequent software updates while providing service to users from remote and multiple locations, installing and updating software manually can be a nightmare. Going from machine to machine just to manage an update is hard enough when all the machines are in the same building. But the mail is slow in getting the update to different locations all around the country, and if you need a technical person on the other end to handle the installation, the costs and time can add up quickly.
Remote software installation is the quick and easy answer to solving a company’s computer system updates. With a remote program, your IT department can install and update the entire company, or groupings of employees, without leaving the office.
“Companies using Windows, Mac or Linux systems need to check out Dell’s KACE K1000 System Management Appliance as the solution for any software installing, updating or administration needs, especially with remote locations,” says Ken Drachnik, a remote software installation expert with Dell KACE. “Save money by keeping your IT department in house, yet still be able to handle all updates and installations easily – and securely.”
Users can monitor what updates have been made across groups of machines, checking to determine which systems are in compliance with the latest update. And if there is a difference between applications – or versions of the same application, ITNinja provides up-to-date installation information, including correct command lines or parameters.
Simplicity is the biggest reason for a company to consider a remote software installation option, and with KACE K1000 system managing Mac, Windows and Linux applications with no problems, that simplicity is very evident. It also allows small and shrinking IT departments to save money, because extra staff are not needed any longer to handle installations – everything is done behind the scenes.
A company cannot be successful without a solid technology system that quickly and easily handles updates and installs. With employees working remotely from an office or on the road, time is of the essence to ensure all technology is up to date for them to access and use.
