Software deployment made easy
Network software distribution and maintenance made easy. Automate the routine by letting Total Software Deployment scan your network, build a list of software installed on your computers, and perform automated deployment tasks remotely from a centralized location.
Which software is on your Windows PCs?
Learn which software is installed on your network computers without leaving your chair! Just make sure your computers are using a modern version of Windows (XP or higher), and have your administrative password ready.
A really smart scanner
Just specify what you’re about to scan, and Total Software Deployment will start working immediately. With automated network discovery, it’ll automatically locate all valid nodes within the specified IP range, identify computers in the workgroup, and display the domain structure. You can simply scan with the default settings and your administrative password or specify logins and passwords for individual devices or groups. Get set, get ready, go!
With today’s wide bandwidth and powerful processors there’s no need to wait for one task to finish before launching another. TSD employs a truly concurrent, multi-threaded approach to network scanning, running as many tasks in parallel as your network allows. Thanks to that, the scan can be completed in a matter of minutes even if you have a fairly large network.
Managed updates and maintenance
"Which version of Software X are my computers using, and how can I update it?" This is the most common question we’re asked, and this is exactly the job we’ve built TSD to handle. Managed software updates could not have been made easier! Total Software Deployment will scan your network computers and build a comprehensive report detailing which software is installed on each computer. Updating outdated versions is as easy as selecting them in the list and clicking "Update".
Centralized software storage
Software storage in Total Software Deployment supports single-file and complex installers. The storage is highly configurable, allowing you to edit basic properties, such as version number, language, or supported OS architecture and enabling common and per-product deployment policies specifying which add-ons, updates, or hotfixes should be deployed with the main application.
Everything you need right before your eyes
View everything you need and nothing else! TSD offers flexible configuration options for displaying information about your network nodes. You can see whether or not the computer is online, view its network name and IP address, check which Windows version it's running, and choose how much – or how little – information you’d like to be displayed.
Total Software Deployment offers convenient searching and filtering to help you quickly locate installed applications, identify your deployment goals, and assign tasks and priorities.
Fully compatible with Total Network Inventory
Total Software Deployment and Total Network Inventory share a common storage structure, allowing you to use these two products together by either syncing the storages or simply sharing it between the two apps.
Building one-click deployment packages
Create silent deployment packages in just a few clicks! TSD will automatically determine the type of installer and use the correct command line string to remotely deploy applications without the need for user interaction. This method is great for remote deployment of MS Office ® in your local network.
Custom deployment is not a problem
Do you have an installer requiring user input no matter what? In fact, a substantial number of products don’t have native support for automated deployment. Not a problem if you’re using Total Software Deployment! Just build a macro for such installation packages, pre-recording all the clicks and jumping through all the hoops. And it’s easy to disable any unwanted actions without re-recording the entire scenario.
If nothing else helps, we can make a system snapshot to deploy some really tough packages. System snapshot is the ultimate tool that helps deploying products that absolutely won’t budge to any standard deployment method.
Snapshot deployment works by tracking changes made to files and Windows Registry settings during an app install. These changes are recorded, distilled, and incorporated into a custom package that can be deployed on other computers remotely. This is the lowest-level deployment method available. Use with great care!
Deployment jobs list
Create lists of packages to deploy and set your deployment goals just once, deploy to multiple computers in one click afterwards. Unlike built-in tools, Total Software Deployment does not restrict you to just MSI packages. Instead, the tool allows you to deploy packages built with a wide range of installer types, including those with limited or no support for remote installation.
Just start the deployment, sit back, and watch the process. TSD monitors every step, allowing you to easily identify any deployment issues.
With Total Software Deployment your remote installations will not disturb the end users with windows or dialogs and won’t interrupt their workflow.
