The Software – Easy Software Deployment
With Easy Software Deployment, rolling out company software is a piece of cake! Easy Software Deployment is developed for and by application specialists who want to manage application installations hassle free. It’s not needed to repackage applications because all Windows installation formats are supported. As long as the installation file supports “switches” to automate the installation, Easy Software Deployment can automatically install the application.
The following installation formats and scripts are supported: vbs, ps1, cmd, bat, msi, exe and the following virtualisation formats: Microsoft App-V (4 & 5), VMware ThinApp.
Easy Software Deployment is developed for and tested on the following Windows versions: Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 & R2 and Windows Server 2012. There is no back-end, server or database necessary to implement Easy Software Deployment.
EASY SOFTWARE DEPLOYMENT FEATURES
Managing installation items is now even safer: set permissions on files, folders and/or the registry to ensure every user gets what is permitted.
Need to manage App-V 5 Connection Groups but don’t want to do it manually or with third party tools? That makes no sense! Let us handle this too.
To virtualize or not to virtualize? Either way we got you covered! Easy Software Deployment supports Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) and VMWare ThinApp.
Since we put the easy in software deployment it’s not needed to repackage or alter the original vendor supplied software. Just use the supplied switches and/or installation mechanisms. No time consuming repackaging projects needed.
Have we mentioned how fast Easy Software Deployment is? Oh I guess we just did! Since it’s lightweight and ultra portable it’s by nature also very fast. From the use of the Manager console to the mechanism of deploying software: in a matter of minutes you can have your software deployed.
You would think all this would come at a cost? Nope! Easy Software Deployment is a low cost solution compared to SCCM, Altiris, Active Directory and PDQ Deploy. Contact us for more information.
Need to backup applications for archival purposes? Using Easy Software Deployment at another geographical site and you want the same installation items to be available there? No problem! You can export installation items as a zip file and easily import them later on. Easy as pie!
Deciding what type of installation to do is not always clear. Don’t worry: we will now guide you through the process of adding installation items. Whether it’s a local install, a virtualized application or a system or user based deployment: we’re there for you! <3
Of course you need to be able to manage when certain applications are available. With the Availability Calculator you can calculate what is available to which user(s), group(s) and/or computer(s). Setting an expiry date will allow applications to automatically expire or even uninstall!
Found that application you want to deploy? Just drag and drop it into the Manager Console: BOOM! Imported!
Multiple servers users logon to? Not sure which server they land on? No problemo! ESD now supports Windows Remote Desktop Services (P.K.A. Terminal Services.)
Easy Software Deployment is now easier than ever: with Auto Update the Agents will automatically update themselves!
Easy Software Deployment has been developed for and tested on all Windows versions from Windows XP up to Windows 10 and everything in between including Windows Server versions.
Because Easy Software Deployment is lightweight it’s small in size and ultra portable. Just copy the program to a location of your choosing and off you go.
Easy Software Deployment can handle lots and lots of applications. This means it can get crowded very fast. Luckily you can filter and categorize your installation items so you will always be able to find the application you need.
Everything is handled from the Easy Software Deployment Manager Console. This means one single point of administration for all your applications and computers. We looked at the standard of deployment tools and built upon that to give you a reliable and recgnonizable interface. Just like you’re used to.
You’ve already set up your network, users and computers. Why do that all over again? No need to! Easy Software Deployment integrates with Active Directory for a seamless experience in your existing Microsoft network.
Having all your computers in one place is handy. But being able to manage them with basic tasks like remote control, remote command prompt, remote shutdown commands and more is even handier. Very handy indeed!

Joel Kruijff (Application Specialist at Centric Packaging Services):
“What is nice about Easy Software Deployment is the speed at which your program is deployed. With Easy Software Deployment this is immediately. And maybe you’re thinking: it’s not easy to quickly set up an environment when you want to test a deployment. With ESD you won’t have to. It installs it’s own agent if necessary, without your intervention. You can take it with you on a stick. No need to install it. And it’s not just MSI’s i’m talking about. With ESD you can deploy a multitude of installation items: AppV (4 or 5), MSI, regular setups (exe), and even cmd-files. This tool covers all your bases. Try it, you won’t be disappointed!”
