LANutil32 v5.02 now handles real-time software distribution


Tamworth, Staffs., February 13, 2001 PC management specialists, Vector Networks announce the release of version 5.02 of their PC auditing and software distribution product, LANutil32 Suite. Version 5.02 of the suite offers numerous product enhancements including real-time software distribution, the introduction of Desktop Management Interface (DMI) technology, support improvements for SQLServer/2000 and Oracle, and new comprehensive node reports.

LANutil32 v5.02 heightens system and asset management control and productivity with the introduction of DMI technology. The v5.02 Client kit now supports DMI as a means to retrieve certain items of key data from DMI-compliant BIOS implementations such as make, model and serial number. This enhances LANutil32¹s already rich network-wide hardware inventory and configuration insight and rounds out the report library to include more than 30 reports right "out of the box". LANutil32 affords the network administrator with asset management information that is always current and accessible.

The new Software Changes report summarizes PCs that have experienced either new applications, deleted applications or application version changes all without disrupting users. The License Groups utility then compares the inventory data with management's application deployment policies and reveals any rogue configurations.

The software distribution agent is now capable of being run in real-time, without requiring logon, making it possible to run software or data distribution tasks overnight, network-wide, simultaneously and invisibly.

LANutil32 Suite supports ODBC-compliant databases and enables easy access from wide ranging customer database applications and reporting packages. v5.02 offers improved support for SQLServer, SQLServer 2000 and Oracle.

LANutil32 Suite prices range from £660 for a 10 PC license to £22.00 per PC at the 1000 PC level, with further volume discounts at higher levels. The product is sold worldwide through Vector Offices in Tamworth, Staffs., Atlanta, Georgia, and some 50 distributors in Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Australasia, and the Far East.

LANutil32 Suite is also available bundled with Vector¹s remote control product, NetSupport PC-Duo under the LANutil32 Elite brand name. This combination provides help desk, system administration and support staff with a shared easy-to-use relational database with highly detailed information on desktop hardware and software configurations, and the capability to roll out regular updates to desktop applications.
