FastTrack Software Announces App Factory, the “No Scripting Required” Solution to Automate Network Administration Tasks
Canterbury, United Kingdom, December 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Today, Binary Resource, distributor of FastTrack Software, announced the FastTrack App Factory, which is now included in FastTrack Automation Studio. App Factory is designed for use in the time- and resource-limited environments in which network administrators now operate. The App Factory is included in the Small Business, Enterprise and Platinum editions of FastTrack Automation Studio.
“Access to fast, easy-to-use tools is critical to the ability of network administrators to do their jobs effectively and efficiently,” said Annette Dow, CEO, Binary Resource. “FastTrack is meeting this need by releasing App Factory, which requires no scripting knowledge to get up and running.”
The App Factory gives admins a fast and easy, wizard-driven alternative to manually writing scripts to automate the repetitive and mundane tasks of Windows network management. No knowledge of FastTrack or scripting is required to use the App Factory.
Using the App Factory, one can accomplish the following simply by clicking through a Wizard-based interface and answering a few questions:
· Create Outlook Signatures
· Create Software and hardware inventory
· Create Logon scripts
· Convert .exe to .msi
· Create a Backup application.
· Build a Kiosk PC
· Create a Help Desk application
With App Factory, it takes just minutes to have a useable script ready to implement in the network.
“What we were hearing from trial users is that they were looking for a really simple and fast means to create scripts for some of the more fundamental network management tasks,” said Lars Pedersen, lead developer and CTO, FastTrack Software. “In response, we’ve developed App Factory with, in effect, point and click methodology to create those scripts within minutes - and without any scripting experience or knowledge.”
If a more advanced script is needed, then selecting the “Advanced Mode” allows custom scripts to be written with the help of FastTrack’s 1,200+ commands, which are available through the engine browser tree in the script editor. These are the basic building blocks, which can be used to automate virtually any operation.
FastTrack was developed for organizations looking for ways to make more efficient and effective use of network administrators' time by the automation of key tasks. “Under the hood,” it’s a scripting language offering a powerful alternative to languages such as Powershell, KiXtart and VB Script. FastTrack is designed for Windows 7, 8 and XP network environments.
A free, 30-day trial of FastTrack Automation Studio (which includes the “App Factory”) is available at www.fasttrackscript.com/Trial. Extensive documentation and Video Tutorials are on the site. Technical Support is provided during the trial period.
