XIA Links - Desktop Application Launcher
XIA Links empowers users on your network to launch programs through a convenient, easy to use interface. Network administrators can manage which applications are displayed to end users on all the workstations on your network at once.
How can XIA Links help you?
XIA Links organises shortcuts to applications into a single location so they can easily be found and launched by users. Applications can be grouped into categories making them easy to find on workstations with a large number of different programs. It is the perfect solution for those looking to replace Novell Application Launcher
and works well in an educational establishment such as a school or college.
Advanced Application Configuration
Unlike Group Policy Desktop redirection
which cannot account for applications being installed in different locations on different machines, XIA Links allows you to configure multiple possible locations to an application to account for different install locations between machines and for multiple versions of an application on the same machine.
In addition to this, applications that are not found on a machine can be hidden from the user.
Target Applications to specific users
Specify exactly which Active Directory Groups or computers you wish to receive application shortcuts.
Security can be assigned to allow or deny these targets.
Our firm has used Novell Delivered Applications since 1999 and our users rely on it heavily for fast access to their most commonly used applications.
We were concerned about them losing that convenience when we eliminated Novell, but learned about XIA Links from an ILTA posting and it was the perfect replacement. We can structure their folders and view almost exactly as they appeared in Novell Delivered Applications and we know that will save us hundreds of helpdesk calls about trying to locate shortcuts!
