If you have just a couple of computers using DeepFreeze this isn't necessary. When you start using 100s of computers and multiple packages (like Deep Freeze, Data Igloo, and Insight) a tool is needed like Core for manageability.

PDQ Deploy

[PDQ Deploy] is great software for most any shop, but I find it very helpful being a one man show and having to work remotely. I can do things faster not having to connect to each laptop and do updates. This save lots of time and makes managing many computers easy.

The interface is straight forward and guides you through the process there. PDQ keeps track of the when new updates are made available writes the scripts and all l you need to do is push the button. (Mr George Jetson) Now with the download done you just sit back worry free and watch the software install in 1% of the time it would take to take care of the PC manually.

PDQ Deploy is an outstanding, reasonably priced product that provides as much functionality as SCCM (minus a few minor features). It can be installed and set up by almost anyone and does not require expensive MS licensing (or 10 days of professional services to get it to run to an acceptable standard). All this, paired with unparalleled ease of use and great functionality, is why I would always recommend using this product instead of anything else.

PDQ Deploy

This software was referred to us by an IT professional. Previously, we were installing the software with the help of remote desktop applications but it was very time consuming; it was wasting the user's time since he could not use his computer. After testing PDQ Deploy, we just never looked back.

Return on Investment

Faronics Core

  • It has sped up deployment significantly.
  • It makes it easier to work on a computer in the field.
Mark Fitzgerald | TrustRadius Reviewer

PDQ Deploy

  • Convenience! Despite being a small team, PDQ Deploy has boosted our ability to deliver up-to-date Windows applications to our client PCs in a fraction of the time it took when the process was a manual one. Our reach has naturally improved; installing a simple application on a suite of 20 PCs no longer seems to be a daunting task.
  • TIME-SAVING! I cannot emphasize enough the time savings one can enjoy with this product!
