PDQ Deploy Alternatives

IT admins know that the best compliment they can get is when employees say that they didn't even notice the rollout of an update or installation of a new piece of software for the company. That's what makes PDQ Deploy's (and some of its alternatives') support for remote installation so important.

For more personal batch app deployment, PDQ Deploy isn't what you want, but plenty of its alternatives are. Also, as PDQ Deploy is exclusive to Windows, you might be interested in alternatives that are available on Linux.

PDQ Deploy alternatives are mainly Software Installers but may also be Package Managers or Software Updaters. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of PDQ Deploy.
