  • Centralized management and monitoring: A simple, powerful admin tool that allows IT to remotely configure, update, and troubleshoot HP Thin Clients. Automate certain tasks with pre-built templates that use rules by folder to create configurable deployments.
  • Flexible and intuitive experiences: Enable IT to keep track of what’s important with a tool that sets up in minutes. Customize the interface with easy drag-and-drop support for multiple displays or use the web-based console for quick access and role-based task delegation from anywhere.
  • Powerful console built for scale: Operate across large enterprise deployments with support for 64-bit applications and scalable memory, performance, and reliability.
