ManageNet network administration tool – more info

It is estimated that 85% of a network administrator’s time is spent rolling out the latest service packs, mapping drives, configuring folder redirections, configuring Internet connections, setting Microsoft Office paths, creating new Outlook profiles, deploying new printers, configuring proxy setting and tightening security policies.

ManageNet uses a graphical user interface to simplify desktop administration, eliminate redundant tasks and reduce other time-consuming activities. Network administrators can manage Windows clients and applications more efficiently, precisely choose settings to apply to computer or user and deliver the configuration for each user as they logon and while they working.

By automating various redundant administrative activities, desktop management resources can be minimized by as much as 50%.

Benefits for Users and Administrators

  • More Productive Users – Personalized desktops—unique configurations of security policies, preferences, drive mappings, printers, Internet, and applications settings—can be applied to PCs based on ManageNet’s Actions, so everyone on the network has the familiar interface and set of resources they need, when and where they need them.
  • Simplified Administration – By centralizing the process of desktop management and enabling remote troubleshooting and repair in many cases, ManageNet keeps users working with less intervention required by administrators.
  • Reduced Costs – ManageNet control your network using unique LoginScript engine during the network logon process to reduce the number of menial management tasks and to eliminate redundant administration so your staff can concentrate on more strategic activities and reduce your total cost of ownership.

The benefits of a centralized approach to connecting network resources and configuring the operating system and applications to use them, are instantly realized — whether your network consists of traditional clients, thin clients, or a mixture of both.
