Our latest IT survey results are in! We're excited to announce that IT managers and IT teams prefer PCmover Enterprise over Microsoft’s User State Migration Tool (USMT). While USMT is built into Windows as a free tool, our survey of IT managers and IT staff using USMT to upgrade computers to the latest version of Windows found that, while many appreciated USMT’s time-saving benefits, 25% of respondents noted it was difficult to implement.
Included in the survey comments: “It (USMT) works, but it’s not pretty.” Other IT staff and managers declared there is a “high learning curve,” and many said that USMT “is powerful, but hard to use.”
“Because USMT is actually a toolkit and specifically will not transfer applications, there is a mismatch between IT’s desires and USMT’s capabilities,” says Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink Software. “This is apparent in the survey responses. And that’s why we provide PCmover Enterprise with full support for automatically transferring applications. Plus, our company is known for its first-class technical support, which provides help with configuring PCmover to meet the specific needs of each customer.”
Since Laplink Software only focuses on PC migration software, the good news is that you can use PCmover for any scenario where you need to transfer data, applications, and settings from one PC to another PC. For nearly 40 years, Laplink has been the leader in consumer, SMB, and enterprise PC migration software, and has earned the loyalty and trust of millions of organizations and customers worldwide.
