According to recent research, the total business impact from ineffective PC replacement and Windows 7 upgrade processes can quickly exceed $300 - $2,000 per PC upgraded, quickly straining resources, budgets, productivity, and end-user morale throughout the migration effort.
What is PCmover Enterprise?
Laplink's PCmover Enterprise Edition automates the migration process for Windows 7 upgrades, PC refreshes, and break-fix recovery scenarios. This saves organizations time and money by eliminating end-user downtime, reducing IT staff resource needs, and saving on operational costs like shipping, storage, and third-party services. PCmover is also the only migration utility that natively transfers installed applications, settings, data, and user accounts to provide a full and complete migration process.
By using PCmover Enterprise Edition, non-technical administrators can easily set up a "light touch" or "zero touch" transfer of applications, user profiles, settings and data files automatically from an old to a new PC regardless of hardware or OS differences.
Migrations can run automatically across a network, Laplink USB cable, Laplink Ethernet cable or using external media or storage. Computers with multiple users have the option to migrate some or all of the users at once, with security information about file ownership and access control preserved for each user.
In addition, many organizations simply do not have the staff or resources to execute a full organizational upgrade in a predefined time period.
The current version of PCmover Enterprise can also integrate into desktop deployment tools, so please contact your Laplink Account Executive or fill out our contact form here.

PCmover Enterprise includes additional features designed specifically for organizations that require migrations to be in compliance with specific IT policies. The Policy Manager module gives users the ability to configure migrations as needed, and can generate and enforce automated role or department-specific migration requirement policies. Also, PCmover Enterprise can run from a network drive or removable storage device, eliminating the need to install it on any of the PCs involved in the migration.
PCmover Business offers migration solutions without adhering to IT policy mandates, allowing for custom configuration and autonomy from the Policy Manager Module. Consumers can freely operate their selection of programs, migrating at their leisure and convenience.
PCmover Professional provides the same great migration technology found in PCmover Enterprise, however it does not include the Policy Manager module and cannot be run over a network or from a removable storage device.
