IGEL SWP

Additional Shared WorkPlace Feature

The “Shared WorkPlace” feature, which can be optionally licensed, is an enhancement of IGEL’s Thin Client software. It allows user-dependent configuration based on setting profiles created in the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) and linked to the user accounts in the Active Directory.

Typical applications for the Shared WorkPlace option are those workstations used for shift work or in call centers, where different staff members use the same device and need their own individual settings, such as for session types or mouse-button configuration for right/left-handed operation.

Another common use can be found in roaming environments, where users frequently switch workstations, such as in hospitals and at service/ticket counters, checkouts (POS) and customer reception areas.

Numerous helpful features such as predefined templates, the user-friendly GUI or IGEL helpdesk support make this reliable application easy to use.

After a user has logged on, the Shared WorkPlace Thin Client automatically receives the appropriate configuration for that user from the UMS server, which itself retrieves it from the UMS database of individual and group profiles.

These profiles can be readily assigned to users in the IGEL Universal Management console simply by drag-and-drop.
