SoftwareCentral simplifies and improves your Configuration Management

SoftwareCentral relieves the burden on IT specialists and releases them to focus on higher value tasks. The user-friendly interface, which lies on top of Microsoft SCCM, allows you to move tasks from the administrator to support staff and end users.

Manage large IT-infrastructures without giving up reliability and security.


The purpose of SoftwareCentral is to simplify SCCM tasks and improve the configuration management in your organization. The key benefit of a good configuration management tool is consistency and stability in your systems and software. With SoftwareCentral you can automate and delegate repetitive SCCM tasks.

Speed up configuration tasks, like deploying critical applications and replace manual configuration processes with automated processes. With SoftwareCentral you can manage more clients with the same or even fewer resources.

SoftwareCentral consists of three major parts – an administration part, a support part and a shopping part.

The administration part provides you with functions designed to simplify Microsoft SCCM tasks such as managing computers, packages, templates and software groups. The support part enables supporters and IT staff to do reinstallation and cloning of computers in a fast and simple manner. The shopping part is a complete and simple to use self-service portal where users may order software directly from the Microsoft SCCM server.

Shop – Self-service for endusers

SoftwareCentral features a self-service portal where users can order anything from SCCM packages to services such as local administrative permissions. The shop is fully customizable, from logo to content and the actions that are triggered. The comprehensive, fully customizable, approval flow system allows you to control the content users order. The shop can be integrated with other tools such as ServiceNow.

Software Deployment

SoftwareCentral makes software deployment easy. With the Manage Software interfaces, SoftwareCentral can deploy software to users and devices with a single click. SoftwareCentral provides real-time installation statuses and can help troubleshoot and fix deployment errors. Users can monitor a deployment to multiple devices at the same time using the Deployment Manager.

Security Roles

The Active Directory and collection based Security Roles allows you to delegate permissions to everything in SoftwareCentral such as menu buttons, users, devices, software, operation systems, templates, reports and much more. You can easily get started with your current AD and collection structure and extend the permissions as needed.

SoftwareCentral Cloud

SoftwareCentral is also available as a cloud-service. The SoftwareCentral Cloud is secure and reliable and will make your daily life easier, as you no longer need to manually update SoftwareCentral or ensure that your SoftwareCentral is compatible with your version of the Microsoft SCCM.

Software Package Subscription

With the software subscription option, SoftwareCentral Plus, users can automatically download and import the most commonly used software such as Adobe Reader, Java and many more. The Replace Package functionality makes it easy to test new versions of a program and update all current installations.

Windows 10 Servicing

SoftwareCentral features a patch management module where users easily can see and update devices. With the Windows 10 servicing features, it has never been easier to make sure that your Windows 10 devices are compliant. In addition to the SCCM Windows 10 servicing, SoftwareCentral makes it easy to see deployment statuses of Windows 10 patches and locates those devices that fail.

 

Template Based Operations

SoftwareCentral uses templates for computer, application and package imports which allows users with little to no knowledge of the SCCM to perform these tasks. The use of templates also ensures a standardized SCCM and greatly reduces the amount of errors.

 

SoftwareCentral is easy to install.

Simply create your cloud account and download the CloudConnector. Once installed, you go to https://softwarecentral.cloud and log in with your own domain account. Note that SoftwareCentral does not store any information about your users and their accounts in the cloud.

If your organizations security policy does not allow for online connections, you can download a fully operational offline version of SoftwareCentral, where you host SoftwareCentral as an intranet site on your own server.
