Companies took huge damage because of covid-19 pandemic. Most of country lost its economic balance.

Errors installing software or agent are hard to troubleshoot without having to start over with deployment.

It can sometimes be hard to find MSI versions of software installers which are required by PDQ Deploy, and making an MSI version can often be painful and tedious.

Patch Tuesday from Microsoft, the updates for Microsoft Office are left off. Only bad thing I can say.

Sometimes a google search can get you the answer, sometimes not. This can make it hit or miss if you do not have the correct switches for the parameters.

Desktop Central has it all.

Reviewed a year ago

We use Desktop Central to deploy patches, deploy/remove software, remote connect to remote devices, asset inventory, file management, remote shutdown, etc...Everything about Desktop Central has benefited our company.

Pros

Desktop Central provided us with the ability to replace several different software products that we were using before, and gave us so much more capabilities on top of them. Deploying patches, software, configuration jobs are a must in this day and age, and Desktop Central makes these processes extremely easy.

Cons

I really do not have any complaints about this software. They are always adding more and more functionality.
