ABC Deploy uses a policy driven approach to deliver software deployments and any other scriptable management task to PC’s and to end users. Multistep tasks are used to install or uninstall any type of software to your client computers, and also to setup user profiles for installed software. You can choose tasks to be executed under the credentials of the logged in user, or under the local system account.

  • Error handling and logging activity is fully automated
  • Monitor client activity in real-time
  • Tasks may contain multiple steps, and you can easily redeploy tasks,  or only a part of a task User profile setup applies automatically after deployments, if needed Support any deployment technology: .Msi, .Msp, .Msu, .Reg, .Vbs , .Bat . . .
