The admin section of AppsAnywhere is the most advanced application deployment controller on the education market. From one simple admin portal, AppsAnywhere lets you control everything you could possibly need to when it comes to deploying apps to students and staff.
From the user-friendly admin interface, AppsAnywhere lets you choose how to deliver apps (i.e. the delivery method), set who has access and to which apps, control which devices get which apps, and set software licensing restrictions. It's from here that you can also control your Cloudpaging settings and all the other compatible application delivery methods.
Application deployment made easy.
Once you've chosen each app's delivery method (Cloudpaging, RemoteApp, Parallels RAS etc.) you can set how the apps are provisioned, guaranteeing you comply by licensing restrictions. Through AppsAnywhere you can provide or restrict access to apps using geographical location, students' courses, or what they're using to access the apps (e.g. OS, device type or user-owned machines).
There's more than one way you'll want to deliver apps. It could be using Cloudpaging [app virtualization], Parallels RAS [RDS technology], VMware Horizon [desktop virtualization/VDI], launching locally-installed software, or directing users to downloads for open source apps.
So we've developed Smart Prioritization. Set multiple delivery methods for each app and order them in terms of preference. AppsAnywhere then chooses the best way of delivering the app to the user, based on a variety of factors (e.g. device type, OS, location).
The best part is, all the students see is one 'Launch' button, and everything else happens in the background. Students have enough to think about, without needing to choose between complicated software delivery methods.
Understand app usage with detailed reporting.
AppsAnywhere gives you access to S2 Dashboard, our extensive cutting-edge reporting suite. From there you get an instant view of how students and staff are using AppsAnywhere.
Graphical reports give you an overview of app usage so you can see where your university can save money on software licensing. Never before have you been able to quickly find out whether some apps are never used (even by version number!), or the maximum number of concurrent users.
Choose how you brand AppsAnywhere.
AppsAnywhere looks beautiful out-of-the-box, but we know you'll really want to make it your own.
By adding your university's branding and corporate colors using the admin controls in AppsAnywhere, you can give your students and staff a recognizable, trusted way to access all of their apps. And because it's compatible with multiple application delivery methods, it's a consistent one-stop-shop for university software.
