SOFTWARE PACKAGING INTUITIVE. FAST. EFFICIENT.
No matter which software distribution is in use, with us you package independently
With IDERI pace you get a powerful tool that will make your daily packaging routine easier! Create packages intuitively and with just a few clicks while remaining independent. Other packaging tools are no longer needed.
Overview of the software packaging concept
As part of software distribution, software packaging solutions are responsible for preparing and customizing the installation of software on multiple clients at the same time. In this process, a software package is composed of all parameters and files that are required for a professional installation on the end device.
With an adequate software packaging solution such as IDERI pace, both completely new software and updates to existing software can be installed effectively, comprehensively and in a time-saving manner. This optimally counteracts typical problems in a company’s IT environment such as a lack of compatibility or a high level of manual effort.
Independent and uncomplicated packaging
With many client management solutions, software packaging is not exactly the strong point. It is often cumbersome and you can only reach your goal in a roundabout way.
You can no longer call yourself a classic packager. One is rather pushed to become a Powershell expert.
IDERI pace integrates seamlessly into your existing environment and simplifies your software packaging!
Software packaging - the special relevance in small and large companies
In large companies in particular, software packaging benefits internal processes. The preferred method of software packaging depends on the number of end devices and the complexity of the packaging process.
For example, small companies often use “command line tools” or small PowerShell scripts linked to Active Directory for software packaging.
In the largest companies, on the other hand, the IT department cannot avoid a holistic solution for software distribution. Here it is important to rely on a solution that is as simple and straightforward to use as possible, such as IDERI pace, which minimizes the potential for errors emanating from the packager.

Questions we are often asked
You can find our answers here
Most software distribution solutions on the market do not include packaging support. They can only execute “something”. In the simplest case, this something is an MSI file. But as soon as more extensive steps are required and cmd, vbs or e.g. ps1 scripts are needed, you are left alone; the manufacturers do not provide any packaging support. A software distributor needs most of his working time for packaging. This is exactly where PackagingSuite comes in. It fills exactly this gap – no matter which software distribution solution you have in use.
PackagingSuite essentially consists of the following four modules:
The PackagingCenter helps all those who use a software distribution solution without an integrated script language. PACE has two main purposes.
One main purpose is packaging. This involves supporting the administrator in packaging, i.e. in scripting routines that are later executed on the client and thus bring about the desired installation state on the end device.
The second main focus is on package management. This includes, among other things, the administration of the storage structure, the provision of templates, and the automation of steps that would otherwise have to be carried out manually in order to integrate a package into the software distribution environment used.
For example, deploying a package in Intune requires only a single mouse click. The creation of the Intunewin file, the upload, the discovery rule are all set completely automatically.
The use of the installer enables the maximum range of functions. Besides executing the scripts, it takes care of logging, reboot controls, interaction with the software distribution (e.g. the SCCM agent), control of user-specific installations/configurations, etc.
IDERI mate stands for MSI And Transform Editor.
Many manufacturers deliver their software with the help of an MSI installation file. This always leads to the same installation result. If you need adjustments to the desired target state, you have to create a so-called transform. This is exactly where IDERI mate helps you – as always, completely dialogue-controlled and intuitive.
IDERI move is a tool that helps you migrate IVANTI DSM to any other platform such as MS Intune, Matrix Empirum, VMware Workspace One and others. IDERI move allows you to run existing DSM scripts in another software distribution solution. On the one hand, this is done with virtually no change effort and, on the other hand, without any loss of functionality.
Customers migrating from a DSM environment can use IDERI move to transfer their existing DSM packages to a new interface. This allows existing eScript packages to be migrated from an existing DSM environment to any new software distribution solution. On average, about 90% of the packages will continue to be used directly in your new target system without any changes.
IDERI PackagingSuite is supported by all Windows operating systems from Windows 7 onwards.
It requires .NET Framework 4.6.2 or higher, which is usually already provided by the operating system itself.
Of course, the duration of the packaging depends on the scope and complexity of the application to be distributed.
All the steps involved, such as determining the storage location and creating the root directory structure, compressing the fileset (Intune), defining the recognition rules – all these steps are done completely automatically.
This means you really only have to worry about the packaging and even here a powerful dialogue-oriented script language helps you.
Someone with previous IT administration experience should be able to use it within minutes.
If you have no previous IT experience, we will be happy to support you with an introduction/training session – feel free to contact us.
PackagingSuite provides a powerful range of functions. Practically everything you need for successful software distribution is already available. And should a function be needed, in the best case only one contact with our support is necessary to discuss and initiate a possible realisation.
The PackagingCenter (pace) offers an easy-to-use interface. For each command of the script language there is a corresponding dialogue. This means that you don’t have to learn a complex language, but simply drag and drop desired functions from a command selection into the script to insert the required information into the dialogue boxes.
All steps beyond packaging, such as registering the package in the software distribution (SCCM, Intune, etc.) are automated and are initiated and executed with a mouse click.
This means that almost 100% of the manual activities that would otherwise occur are carried out by automatisms.
Yes, you can use PackagingSuite without a locally installed installer. However, the range of functions is reduced.
Generally, there are two sources of error, one is a manufacturer’s error and the other is an operating error, for example a packaging error.
Regardless of which error source is present, each module writes detailed log files, each step is logged. This helps you effectively in any troubleshooting that may be necessary and thus enables better support from us as the manufacturer.
Yes, commands can be flagged in pace.
With the two script languages Powershell and NetInstall, user-machine part separation is possible.
Most software distribution solutions on the market require two separate scripts. One installs an application on a computer and the second takes care of the configuration and user settings, this leads to extra work as these two scripts have to be set in dependency. This means double package creation, double allocation, double administration, double effort.
PackagingSuite only needs one script, each command in this script can be flagged by mouse click, here the flagging of the command decides whether it should be executed once per PC or user.
Yes, a package can be installed or uninstalled directly from the Pace console. This means that for testing purposes, an installation/uninstallation can be carried out immediately in a fraction of a second with the press of a button.
There is no need for tedious importing, distributing and waiting for the client to start.

The special thing about pace is that anyone who sees a pace script can tell what it does after seconds. Even people who see a script for the first time.
Windows is very powerful and even superficially simple things often have a lot of options and configurations in detail. The special thing about pace is the simplified view of a script. For example, a command to create a link on the desktop is called CreateLink. At first, I may need information about the name of the link and where it should be created.
For example, if you see a CreateLink -Notepad -DESKTOP, then you can already think without thinking too much that a link to the notepad is to be created here on the desktop. At first glance, this information is enough. Only in detail am I interested in which exe is to be executed, which parameters are to be passed, how the working directory is to be configured. All the usual scripting languages cannot hide this detailed information, because in the end each parameter must be set or one must know what the default values are. As pace has a simplified view in which only essential information is shown. If you want to adjust something, you simply double-click on the corresponding command and a dialogue opens. All options are clearly presented with edit fields, checkboxes, radio buttons, etc. You almost never have to type. You almost never have to type, 90 % is done via mouse control. It couldn’t be simpler or more intuitive.
PackagingSuite is available in German, English and French.
By the way, if another language is desired/needed, this can be translated accordingly with the help of the customer. We simply provide a file with the texts in German/English. If the file is supplied to us with the corresponding information in the desired/needed language, we can supplement this.
