Remote Software Deployment
Action1 RMM streamlines software deployment workflows, going far beyond the capabilities of command-line tools such as WMIC and PsExec. It empowers IT teams to distribute and deploy EXE and MSI files and software updates across the entire network of corporate workstations simultaneously, all from a central cloud dashboard. The Action1 RMM installation utility does not rely on Group Policy and makes it easy to deploy software both to devices on the network and to remote computers disconnected from the corporate LAN and with no VPN configurations.
Software Deployment Settings
Orchestrate software distribution without downtime or interruptions for your colleagues:
Create pre-configured software installation packages to quickly onboard new users.
Easily customize reboot preferences and other distribution options.
Configure the software installation and removal processes to run during off-hours to minimize downtime for end-users.
Execute silent app installations to any Windows-based device.
Leverage scheduled updates and remote software installation even when the endpoint is located in another time zone or even on the other side of the world.
Software Asset Management
Use detailed reports on installed software to quickly assess which workstations require attention, and promptly deploy any missing software and patches to reduce user frustration and helpdesk calls. Query the entire fleet of workstations in seconds and get a complete software and hardware inventory that includes operating systems versions, software installation dates, and much more.
Modern Software Deployment Methods
Unlike many other free software distribution tools, Action1 RMM does not rely on Group Policy for rolling out updates and pushing software deployments. The managed endpoints can belong to a single LAN or domain, or be spread out worldwide, which makes it easy to remotely deploy software to multiple computers at once.
Remote Uninstall of Software
Remotely discover unauthorized or potentially harmful apps and services and uninstall them from all managed workstations at once. Get alerts on the installation and startup of suspicious programs. Set up policies to automatically remove certain applications from specific groups of endpoints, configuring an automatic reboot if required.
Centralized App Store
The Action1 RMM App Store comes preloaded with the most popular software installers, such as web browsers, Abode products, file managers, and online messengers. All you need to do is select a package to install; specify the target endpoints (for example, you can install a particular program on Windows 7 computers only); and choose the best time for deployment. The Action1 RMM distribution software will handle the remote installation for you, and even automatically retry installation for any workstations that are currently shut down.
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Software Distribution
Action1 RMM uses peer-to-peer distribution to install applications and updates. P2P technology dramatically reduces bandwidth usage, minimizing strain on the network and associated delays and downtime for end-users. The Action1 RMM distribution process works in parallel with Windows Update Delivery Optimization, bringing the same bandwidth efficiency to the entire update process.
Action1 enterprise software deployment solution works equally fast on a network of 100 computers or 100,000 computers. As the number of your endpoints grows, Action1 will scale the backend infrastructure for you and let you focus on what matters most: managing software updates and automated software installations.

IT Software Deployment Best Practices
Have a Strategy
Document your process for deploying software on managed endpoints with a structured checklist to help ensure no steps are missed
To ensure a particular app is deployed across all workstations, create a policy to check for missing software and force installation for compliance.
Configure reboot options and schedule deployment for when end users are not using their endpoints to avoid disruptions and maximize efficiency.
What is Software Deployment Process?
Software deployment for organizations involves installing applications to multiple computers and making sure the latest updates are distributed in a timely fashion. This is a complicated and time-consuming task that gets even more complicated as more and more of the endpoints are disconnected from the corporate LAN. In fact, manual software deployment can quickly become almost impossible. Today, program deployment software such as Action1 RMM is crucial for system administrators and IT managers.

- Automatically installs software on a turned-off computer once it is turned on again
- Runs in the cloud and does not require any management software or dedicated servers in your enterprise network
- Provides a library of the most popular installer package
- Does not require managed computers to be members of an Active Directory domain for remote deployment to work
- Supports both installation and uninstallation of software on remote computers
- Helps automate software deployments across all computers on your network
- Includes in-built free patch management and remote desktop tools.
