Power without comprimise
- Extremely robust. allowing you to create packages specifically written for practically any and every program, Job, script, Ect.
-Cheap. Very much worth the price
-Ease of use. Anyone with a bit of IT knowledge can quickly install this program and start using it at a moments notice
- Kind and quick Support. Everyone at PDQ (that I have worked with) is friendly and easy to work with.
- Versatile. This program works with practically any setup.
Nachteile: If I had to have one complaint I would certainly say that its the fact they are without a phone support line. Everything is done either through their forums or email. While they are quick to provide support via Email. its still email and feels much slower than if a phone were used.

Worth every penny
Kommentare: Very positive, hope to use for a long time
Vorteile: Probably the most used tool for our department. PDQ makes deploying software or custom on the fly changes to workstations a breeze. We dont use GPOs anymore for software. Scheduled deploys, scripting, you can run scripts with local authentication which is great if a computer falls off the domain. Combined with PDQ inventory very powerful. Great built in repository of programs and such. The software is built very well and intuitive.
Nachteile: I'd like to see bandwidth throttling based on network I stead of global but that's not a big deal

Great Software Deployment tool
Kommentare: Day to day software deployments are much easier using PDQ. I am able to create, test & deploy application packages in few minutes. Much more convenient than SCCM. They even offer Windows Cumulative updates which is a bonus feature.
1. Prebuilt packages are so useful. Makes life much easier for IT Admins
2. Integration with PDQ Inventory is the best part of using PDQ Deploy. There are lot of custom build dynamic groups and it is so easy to make the deployment seamless.
3. Integration with Active Directory comes handy.
4. Scheduling package push using Heartbeat Deployment is added convenience.
Nachteile: The only issue is managing remote/offsite machines becomes challenging using PDQ Deploy.

Easy Windows deployment and management
Kommentare: PDQ has made installation and management of our Windows computers easy and inexpensive. Capable of integrating with Active Directory, finding and pushing software to Windows computers is a breeze. Partnered with PDQ Inventory, we would find ourselves working much harder without it.
Easy to use and setup
Nachteile: No OS X or Linux support. Would be awesome if I didn't have to find another program to manage those operating systems, even for the basics.

Kommentare: Amazing experience. I would recommend everyone to look into them and their software. Specifically for updating/patching Microsoft Windows, Java, Adobe, etc. They update the patches automatically on their end and all you have to do is "import them/allow them"
Vorteile: Easy to use. Updated constantly. Support is attentive and you can rely on them to get back to you quickly. The amount of packages that are updated on their end - and approved on our end. Makes installing/updating software a breeze.
Nachteile: Patch Tuesday from Microsoft, the updates for Microsoft Office are left off. Only bad thing I can say.

Plain and simple application deployment
Extremely easy to use.
Hundreds of pre-configured deployment packages.
Very simple to create your own deployment packages.
Ability to nest deployment packages within each other.
Nachteile: No VPN ability, makes it unusable for machines such as outside sales or work from home employees that may not be on the local network/domain regularly.

PDQ Deploy - Program Deployment Helper?
Kommentare: I would recommend most people try out PDQ Deploy and Inventory. If you are looking for a software package that has the features that PDQ does, you won't be disappointed. If you are looking for a comparable solution however, you could also check out Goverlan.
Vorteile: PDQ has been able to streamline our deployment process of programs onto our workstations. With a couple clicks, we were able to use PDQ to deploy several different software packages across our district. In addition to their useful tool, PDQ Inventory (a software that is required to run PDQ Deploy) also helps us get an accurate inventory of all of the machines within our domain.
Nachteile: Some features of PDQ Deploy are limited without buying the full version. The same can be said about their inventory system, but I suppose the cost are justified as this software package is mostly worth the value.

The best admin tool available, bar none
Kommentare: This is amazing software, especially paired with PDQ Inventory. It has cut down our administrative overhead by ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE. This frees up ridiculous amounts of time for IT staff to do other things. I can't recommend PDQ enough.
Vorteile: PDQ Deploy does everything you want do at the desktop as an admin, but wish you didn't have to actually go to the desktop. It's everything SCCM is without the cost or complication.
Nachteile: Some of the wording they use in the dialogs and whatnot can cause you to do a double take. It's not even really much of a speed bump. But I do feel they could look at some of links and menu items and the like and reword them to be clearer.

The tool I needed for the job!
Kommentare: PDQ Deploy easely let me deploy uninstallers for software that I was having problems with. With it I was able to uninstall remotely multiple versions of Dell SupportAssist.
Vorteile: I like the fact that after 10 minutes of playing around with PDQ Deploy I was well on my way to finding a product that suited my needs to install and uninstall software painlessly!
Nachteile: The number of available packages is limited. I was expecting a way to connect to a remote computer and get the list of installed applications, built-in PDQ Deploy. I found out that I had to request a separate trial to get PDQ Inventory.

Great tool for a sysadmin
Vorteile: I like the fact that it allows me to finish most of my taks much faster. Its very easy to use once you set everything up. I've made lists with computer names based on my categories, i just pack the software or command and deploy it with ease.
Nachteile: Everytime my password changes(every 3 months), i have to change the password for PDQ from services.msc . Also, sometimes the error code is not accurate.

Vorteile: PDQ Deploy is extremely useful for installing, uninstalling and updating software application across a variety of office computers at once, working fully as intended.
Nachteile: The inability to work with some software applications packaged within .exe files can be frustrating, and sometimes deployments can take a bit of fiddling before becoming a success which can waste time.

Perfect for installing software
Vorteile: Installing software globally or targeting a few machines is so easy and streamlined with PDQ Deploy. I especially like the library installs that deploy offers. Scripting and understanding how pdq works is relatively easy.
Nachteile: Sometimes building a new install that does not have an msi file can be challenging. Overall its something that you get used to as you deploy more installs.

Software Distribution made simple
Kommentare: I've loved having PDQ Deploy, it has made managing the software on our corporate office computers that much more simple and I really like that it disables updates so they don't get pushed until I'm ready to.
Vorteile: The ease of using the interface, it makes setting up deployment packages very easy to do.
Nachteile: The price is a little steep, but even so, the peace of mind you get from being able to deploy software easily makes up for it

Good for pushing out software
Kommentare: IT has been great. Can make your own packages for deployment which makes software install a breeze.
Vorteile: It is easy to create a package for software and install it on another user's computer. I use this to push out software instead of having to go a user's computer and installing it there.
Nachteile: Can be a little difficult to find the silent install switches for some of the software. Sometimes a google search can get you the answer, sometimes not. This can make it hit or miss if you do not have the correct switches for the parameters.

Amazingly powerful, super easy to use
Vorteile: Very powerful. Competitively priced, very easy to use. Has saved us tons of time.
Nachteile: Community around it could be better, more pre-made packages would be nice.

This is a needed tool for every IT Admin
Kommentare: I started using the trial version, but had to get the paid version because I liked it so much.
Vorteile: This tool is great for SMB IT Admins. It gives you the ability to deploy multiple software applications to multiple machines using your domain. There are times where I only need to deploy certain updates to certain machines, and this tool lets me do that.
Nachteile: Some of the applications I need to deploy aren't in the portfolio, but I can still get them deployed. They just take a little more work.

Kommentare: Instead of images we use this package to deploy new onboarding (i know crazy). This has cut our work time significantly. We also quickly deploy software on demand at any time.
Vorteile: Loaded with features, easy to use, it just works.
Nachteile: The GUI could be updated, their library is kind of small in my opinion.

I cant say enough good things about PDQ deploy
Vorteile: Super easy to create a software package for deployment. The software comes with a library of already created deployments as well.
Nachteile: It takes a bit for the program to load. Other than that, there is nothing negative for me to say about it.

Quickly push software to your devices from your desk
Kommentare: The greatest benefit is to send out packages remotely to devices on the network. PDQ constantly releases new product updates that provide many great improvements to an already great product.
Vorteile: The access to a library of common software tools that are needed for devices in my environment.
Nachteile: Some software is not already available in the library and takes some time to create custom bundles to push to client devices.

Vorteile: I like the fact that is interacts with Active Directory, which makes it easier to select a group of computers to deploy applications/scripts to.
Nachteile: The cost is the biggest issue I have with the software, I work for a small school district, so money is something there is not a lot of, which makes it hard to afford when there are other needs.

Feature rich and works great
Kommentare: Very positive and lots of online resources with this product and company.
Vorteile: Ease of setup and configuration. Very helpful online support articles, videos and web presentations to help in learning and setup.
Nachteile: We chose to stay with the free version, which is limited, however meets our needs. Some additional research may be needed when setting up your own patch packages.

Best deployment software ever.
Vorteile: Easy to use, easy to update, easy to install/ manage. Overall it's a great product.
Nachteile: The initial interface takes a bit to realize how to use it but once you figure it out it works very well.

Saves time and ensures uniform experience
Vorteile: PDQ Deploy is great because it ensures that every PC, and therefore every user in the office gets the same experience in terms of software. To do this manually is a tricky task!
Nachteile: It can sometimes be hard to find MSI versions of software installers which are required by PDQ Deploy, and making an MSI version can often be painful and tedious.

Huge time saver!
Vorteile: I like that I can now ensure that PCs across our company here at our corporate office as well as our remote locations via VPN, have up-to-date software and all I have to do is push a few buttons.
Nachteile: There's not anything I really dislike but if I had to pick something I guess I'd like to see the package library have more options.
