Learn how the University has achieved the following benefits with Application Jukebox:
Improved student IT experience
Any Windows™ application to any managed machine
Faster software installation and more reliable PCs during exams periods
"Rebuild times after exams were taking at least two hours, for some computer rooms across faculties it was taking from 4-6 hours per PC in addition to some overnight builds that ran for hours. It is mainly down to the operating system and the PC’s core software. Now, during exam periods, we can convert a student computer room in much less time than before and the build is reliable".
Improved software licence purchasing decision process.
By using Application Jukebox’s reporting tool, it is possible to see what software application has been used by each faculty and/or department.
Smooth running PCs as software packages do not have to be installed onto them individually.
"Software is now deployed in our student computer rooms on-demand which means that PCs are now running quite lean, compared to the 60-80 applications that were sitting on them before".
