In a typical customer deployment, ThinKiosk, as a Windows-based software solution, simply gets installed on the existing PCs and devices as part of a reimaging process on customers' current hardware. These devices oftentimes have no real data governance and so still have data stored locally.
Deploying ThinKiosk in these environments allows EZ MSP to ‘grab’ the end-user experience away from being local, thereby securing the device and the data stored locally on it.
As a software thin client, ThinKiosk also helps EZ MSP reduce overhead costs while meeting compliance requirements and providing end-user flexibility,
As ThinKiosk is a Windows-based software solution it is quickly and easily deployed to the end user’s device. To simplify the deployment process even further, EZ MSP created automated scripts to deploy the ThinKiosk software rather than having to use a manual process and are able to use customers’ existing and standard deployment tools.
ThinKiosk can be customized so that it is tailored to the customer, but for the EZ MSP IT support team they have exactly the same support mechanisms in place. This means they only need to be trained once and can manage multiple customers with individual customizations using a single toolset.
