Wondering if anyone can recommend software that can be used to manage installs and updates on about 100 laptops. The laptop model is the Lenovo 131 running Windows Enterprise, and they are typically stored in secure cabinets in each classroom. We’d like to be able to install, uninstall and upgrade software products such as browsers, Dragon’s Naturally Speaking, education apps, etc.
One friend that works in a corporation recommended Altiris (not sure which product). I would imagine Microsoft must make a product for this. I’d like to pick the easiest to use and most reliable product, and am not sure how to deal with the fact that after each use, teachers typically have the students close up the computer and put it back in the laptop cart for security purposes. Ideally, the software installs/deinstalls/upgrades would take place during this time, but I don’t think that’s possible once the computer laptop is closed. Or is it possible ?
Thanks in advance,
