Remote station(s) managment
What do people think is the best software for the job?
1. Allows for remote instalation of software to any given workstation(s) from a central server.
2. Ability to view current workstation usage (desktop view, running processes etc)
3. Remote Access/Control
4. Scheduling of specific tasks to run on workstation(s)
i would prefer something that runs silently in background but not essential

That depends on how deep your pockets are. Is this for a small company or for an enterprise?

thehorse :: quite deep pockets walked into this office and am doing complete revamp
new dialer, reporting software - just really making it alot more reliable/modern
am compiling a "wish list" at the moment with what i need to get this place at top spec
so looking for something that will prove to be cost effective in relation to man-hrs
we have roughly 60 workstations atm with it looking like we are going to be increasing greatly in near future - so need something that can manage alot of stations
at the moment all software etc has to be installed manually on each machine - a pain to say the least >_<;
so if you gimmie a couple of recommendations - maybe a low cost/mid cost/high cost so I can look into them, and see the balance between features/cost

Having just visited the corporate head quarters of an international telemarketing firm, the software they used impressed me.
The one package was called Ship-It which allows the scheduling of remote installs.
I can't quite recall the name of the other package for remote administration and surveillance but i believe the acronym was AMO. Assets Management Options I believe.
Both programs had excellent interfacing and were quite efficient, available from Computer Associates
The company I was at was managing 8000 workstations world wide, from the US to the UK to the Phillipines.

At this one place I did some work for they had fully scripted installs. It must have taken a long time to create but damn was it nice. Other then that I'm no help to this converstation but I'd love to know more about good remote deployment software
