TRUSTED FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS
When it became apparent that remote work was the “new normal,” according to industry experts and our own customers, we fast-tracked enhancements to the PCmover Enterprise remote PC migration function that we already had in development. The fact that new PC purchase data showed 30% of sales were desktop PCs and that nearly half (46%) of American organizations have implemented remote work policies because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was all the proof we needed that these enhancements were critical to the organizations around the world.
What we were working on was a way for IT to remotely migrate data from one PC to another and do it from a single PC. And now they can. PCmover Enterprise enables organizations, both large and small, to automate and streamline their PC refresh projects for cost savings and overall efficiency.
PCmover has been expanded to allow IT Managers access to run PC migrations without having to remotely control or physically be on the computer, allowing for multiple migrations to be monitored and controlled from a single PC. Clients are also now able to leverage cloud storage for their migrations to further minimize end-user downtime.
Both enhancements are industry firsts and will make a huge impact, offering remote PC migration management and enabling native cloud migrations.
PCmover Transfer Manager – Clients can now simply push the PCmover service to each PC in their organization and completely manage the migration process through the PCmover Transfer Manager. Previously, the PCmover needed to be launched on the source and target PCs – either by IT or by an end user. Today, that has changed. Once the service is loaded onto the PC, the deployment admin can launch the migrations without needing to remotely control or physically access the user’s machine.
Cloud transfers with Azure, AWS, Google – IT teams can perform migrations using their cloud service of choice, instead of using on-premise or network storage. This is especially valuable to clients who do not have both devices on premise at the time of the migration. The migration process can start with the old PC being captured and saved to cloud storage regardless of where the PC is physically located. Then, whenever is convenient, the migration to the new PC uses the proprietary file stored on the cloud, regardless of where it is physically located.
These two major updates are part of PCmover Enterprise’s rich feature set:
The broad range of PCmover Enterprise customers encompasses a wide variety of industries, government, and education, and is a proof point of market acceptance!
