Saves You Time

PDQ Deploy is a software deployment tool used to keep Windows PCs up-to-date without leaving your chair or bothering end users. Start your trial of PDQ Deploy

Deploy Almost Anything

Silently deploy almost any Windows patch or application (.exe, .msi) to multiple Windows PCs simultaneously. Deployments can install, uninstall, execute scripts, reboot, copy files, sleep, send messages, etc. Instructions and files are sent to the target computer, executed, monitored, and reported.

Set it ‘n Forget it

Never miss a critical patch again! Common applications (including Windows Monthly rollups) can download automatically and deploy on your schedule or even when offline targets come online when integrated with PDQ Inventory. Rest assured your patch updates are going out even when you are not in the office. Isn’t it time for that much-needed vacation?

Easily Execute Scripts

Run and deploy common scripts like .vbs, .reg, .bat, and .ps1. Execute from a file, or write them on the fly. The possibilities are almost endless. also has many resources for PowerShell, too. Start honing those scripting skills.

Ready-to-Deploy Applications

We maintain a library of over 175 ready-to-deploy popular applications so you don’t have to. When a new version of an application is released, updates and tests them and makes them available as soon as possible. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Email Notifications

Wouldn’t it be nice to glance at the inbox on your phone and see that deployment or schedule was successful? You won’t even have to put down that drink or game controller. PDQ Deploy is the assistance you always wanted!

Multi-Admin Access With a Shared Database

Share deployments, schedules, lists, and even preferences between PDQ Deploy consoles by creating a server/client relationship. Processes are initiated via either the console or Command Line Interface (CLI) but use the Server’s database. Why do all the work twice?
