Smart way to install/configure application on multiple computers
Use Asoftech Automation to configure application on multiple clients
We often have such problem where we need to install/configure application on a lot of
computers. It is very unproductive to go to every computer and install/configure application
there. If it takes 2 minutes to install/configure in one computer, 200 computers will take 400
minutes, which is more than 6.6 hours.
Another way is to create a document which shows details steps to install/configure the application,
and then pass the document to users and let them follow the document to install/configure application.
But most users are not techie, it may be hard for them to follow the document.
Why not automate the process? Make installation/configuration process an executable file, and then
pass exe file to users, all they need to do is to double click the exe. Even have to do it by self on all computers,
all need to do is to go to each computer and double click on the exe, which takes only few seconds.
