Issues

B2P Web is a company that provides a Freight Exchange tool and is growing rapidly. This creates two issues on the information system side. The first one is the configuration of the workstations when a new person arrives in the company. This need was met by the WPKG solution that Bastien HERMITTE, system administrator, used to install the software base of a workstation. The second problem is more common, it is the one of a classic SME : deploying software and updating it. According to Bastien, WPKG was less adapted to this problematic because maintaining and updating its park was not practical with this tool. Before WAPT, he did the maintenance of the workstations by hand.

Benefits

“Before, I used to do the maintenance of my park by hand, today I can configure my stations from A to Z and have a view on the status of the park thanks to the WAPT console. The documentation is very complete, I went several times and found what I wanted. The Centos part is not very well documented at the moment, but I go to the mailing list every time I have a problem and I get an answer quickly.”
