Mobile Device Management

Integrated Desktop & Mobile Device Management Software

Desktop Management is a never-ending job for administrators. Configuration requests ranging from simple drive mapping to software installation keep the administrators on their toes. With increasing requests and a growth in the number of desktops, it becomes more difficult to keep up with escalating demand on limited manpower.

The Solution

Desktop Central is a complete Windows desktop management software solution that provides Software Deployment, Patch Management, Asset Management, Remote Desktop Sharing, Service Pack Deployment, Configurations, Active Directory Reports, User Logon Reports and Windows System Tools.

"Patch Management is my Favorite feature; being able to automate patch deployment for over 6500 systems saves my time and efforts.
Desktop Central has allowed a level of visibility across our infrastructure like never before. Through well designed modules we're able to manage, monitor, maintain and action all elements of our environment from the one console which has saved us thousands in time and resources. Having used other Desktop Management suites from competitors such as Symantec and LANDesk."
-Matt Rooney, IT Desktop Manager, BMI Healthcare.
