Customization of ClockWatch Client Installations

ClockWatch Client features a simple, yet powerful, option that lets you include a custom installation template.  This makes installing ClockWatch Client with company-specific values simple and direct. This also allows for company-wide deployment of customized ClockWatch Client installations without modifying the original installation package. The installation files can be shared or copied to a network share for installation. A silent program installer is also available from Beagle Software for large scale or automated deployments.

Some of the program options whose values can be predefined in the install template include:

Easy Deployment of Customized Installation Packages

When present, the values are loaded as default values in the installation.  If ClockWatch is installed in interactive mode, the template values are presented as default choices during installation.

Beagle Software can also provide silent installation packages that install the software using values specified in the install template.

The install template installation packages are available through Beagle Software and its VARs. Contact Beagle Software for more information, pricing, site licensing, etc.
