Applicaton Packaging Services

PAV's application packaging service enables businesses to deploy commercial or in-house software applications to include additional parameters, rolled-in software patches/services packages or other software dependencies needed by the application but not present on the target business machines.

A typical business environment can contain 1000's of software applications
Your applications have different uses, varying levels of complexity, licensing and business usage. The amount of time needed to support, patch and configure these applications across an organisation's network estate can drain business resources as it grows. Reducing the operational overhead of this, minimising software license cost, maximising existing software investment and controlling the proliferation of the software estate are all concerns of today’s businesses.

We help deliver time and cost savings
