SEATTLE (PRWEB) September 23, 2020
Laplink® Software, Inc., the global leader in PC migration and creator of the only software of its kind recommended by Microsoft®, Intel® and all major PC manufacturers, today announced it will be adding innovative new features to PCmover Enterprise to make remote management of PC migrations and OS upgrade projects easier than ever.
Experts predict that having a much larger remote workforce will become the “new normal” even in a post-pandemic world. This means enterprise and large organization IT managers face the growing challenge of keeping employees outfitted with the modern, secure PCs they need to maintain productivity. Moving applications, settings, user profiles, and files from one PC to another can be time consuming for IT personnel and employees alike, especially when the worker is remote, leading to increased costs and reduced productivity. With the upcoming enhancements, Laplink’s groundbreaking PCmover Enterprise will for the first time put full control of remote PC migrations in the hands of IT, regardless of the deployment scenarios.
“With these feature enhancements, PCmover Enterprise is the clear choice for managing decentralized workforces. Microsoft’s User State Migration Tool (USMT) and similar deployment tools are really only used for centralized, non-remote, and on-premise data migrations.” said Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink. “PCmover is the clear choice for enterprises and large organizations to not only manage on-premise PC but scenarios such as, managing a decentralized remote workforce, zero touch, low touch, or end-user driven transfers.” continued Koll. “With the latest release of PCmover Enterprise, Laplink solves the issue of having to use disparate tools for each situation.”
Scheduled for general availability in mid-Q4, the new version of PCmover Enterprise will include multiple enhancements along with two major new features– both industry firsts – intended to support decentralized and remote migrations:
PCmover Transfer Manager – IT managers can completely manage and control multiple migration projects from a single PC. Once the PCmover service is loaded onto an organization’s PCs, the deployment administrator can launch migrations remotely without needing to control via remote session or physically access the machine. This represents the industry’s first data migration tool to fully support both on-premise and off-premise PC data migrations.
Cloud transfers with Azure, AWS, and Google – IT teams can transfer data, settings, and applications from any PC to a single file stored in the cloud, without impacting the end-user. That file will then be used to complete the migration to the new PC, regardless of its physical location. This makes the PC migration process faster, fully secure, and more efficient with little to no impact on the end user.
