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 to minimize downtime for end-users:

  • ^ 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
  • ^ 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 disconnected from LAN.

Software Asset Management

Use real-time reports on installed software to assess which workstations require attention:

  • ^ See what machines need an update, reboot, or other maintenance
  • ^ 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 inventory with versions, installation dates, and more.

Centralized App Store

The Action1 RMM App Store comes preloaded with the most popular software installers. The software repository includes 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 3rd party software installation for you, and even automatically retry installation for any workstations that are currently shut down.

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
  • ^ Remotely view installed software with name, description, installation date and installation user
  • ^ Set up policies to automatically remove certain applications from specific groups of endpoints
  • ^ Configure an automatic reboot if required.

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Software Distribution

Action1 cloud-based software deployment 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.

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.

What are IT software deployment best practices?

1. Have a strategy

Document your process for deploying software on managed endpoints with a structured checklist to help ensure no steps are missed

2. Create policies

To ensure a particular app is deployed across all workstations, create a policy to check for missing software and force installation for compliance.

3. Automate processes

Configure reboot options and schedule deployment for when end users are not using their endpoints to avoid disruptions and maximize efficiency.

What are the benefits of the Action1 free software deployment tool?

Unlike the other LAN-dependent software distribution tools and scripts, Action1 RMM offers all the following benefits:

  • Enables you to install software on a remote computer not connected to a corporate network (e.g., a laptop of a traveling employee)
  • 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.

What Our Customers Say

Action1 RMM saves me 10–15 minutes per machine on software deployment. I can access every machine remotely, so I don’t have to literally travel to every location and touch every machine. 
Mike Straffin

IT Director, Angeles Community Health Center

Action1 RMM empowers us to increase operational efficiency dramatically by streamlining our remote IT management. We were able to fully automate our workstation build process — making it 9 times faster whilst increasing quality.

Jon Abbott

Chief Executive Officer, Priority One

We utilize around 20 proprietary applications that aren’t commonly used out in the world. Being able to deploy them easily — and push updates for them — is really helpful.
