PDQ.com (formerly Admin Arsenal) came into existence after the founders spent their professional lives supporting IBM Tivoli Framework and Microsoft SCCM for very large organizations (10,000+ systems).
After supporting the big boys for so many years, the founders decided to take a different road and they created a systems management solution for the SMB market. Previous attempts by larger companies to service small and medium sized companies had fallen flat and the founders felt that a solution could be realized by simplifying systems management into two separate core products; software deployment, and inventory collection & reporting.
Thus were born PDQ Deploy and PDQ Inventory. Simple products that install quickly, save IT admins a ton of time, and just work. PDQ Deploy and PDQ Inventory have quickly spread across the globe. Over 200,000 organizations have used the free versions, and over 18,000 of those have moved to the enterprise level.
PDQ.com is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Saves You Time
PDQ Deploy is a software deployment tool used to keep Windows PCs up-to-date without leaving your chair or bothering end users.
Silently deploy almost any Windows
patch or application (.exe, .msi) to multiple Windows PCs
simultaneously. Deployments can install, uninstall, execute scripts,
reboot, copy files, sleep, send messages, etc. Instructions and
files are sent to the target computer, executed, monitored, and
Set it ‘n Forget it
Never miss a critical patch again!
Common applications (including Windows Monthly rollups) can download
automatically and deploy on your schedule or even when offline
targets come online when integrated with
PDQ Inventory. Rest
assured your patch updates are going out even when you are not in
the office. Isn’t it time for that much-needed vacation?
Easily Execute Scripts
Run and deploy common scripts like ..vbs,
.reg, .bag, and .ps1. Execute from a file, or write them on the fly.
The possibilities are almost endless. PDQ also has many resources for
PowerShell, too. Start honing those scripting skills.
We maintain a library of over 175
popular applications so you don’t have to. When a new version of
an application is released, PDQ updates and tests them and makes
them available as soon as possible. You’ll wonder how you ever lived
Wouldn’t it be nice to glance at the
inbox on your phone and see that deployment or schedule was
successful? You won’t even have to put down that drink or game
controller. PDQ Deploy is the assistance you always wanted!
Multi-Admin Access With a Shared
Share deployments, schedules, lists,
and even preferences between PDQ Deploy consoles by creating a
server/client relationship. Processes are initiated via either the
console or Command Line Interface (CLI) but use the Server’s
database. Why do all the work twice?
Use PDQ Deploy to install applications and patches to all the computers in your company.
Enterprise mode customers have access to pre-made packages ready to deploy.

How We License
All of our free mode software is 100% free to use in any setting. Commercial, government, educational, criminal (well, maybe not that last one).
You are free to share the software with friends and colleagues, as long as it’s not modified in any way (without our written permission).
Our licensing is simple
One license per admin.
Licensing is not based on managed computers, the number of PDQ consoles, where PDQ is installed, if you share credentials, or even if you only access through the command line (CLI); it is based solely on the number of living breathing admins actually using the software. If you have 3 admins, you will need 3 licenses (sorry, no sharing).
We are subscription based, so one license is good for a full year.
