Benefits and Features
With MDOS and MARXpress and other systems that do digital key injection, the data is not available for the devices until the Computer Build Reports (CBRs) are sent to the MDOS portal, which could be at the end of day or end of week. This is a huge amount of time to not know what is going on. With SMART, the data is live and available instantly on our Web App. This ensures that business critical data of the production floor is on hand for the entire company. This data can also be fed back to clients in real-time
Our Web App gives access to live data on how many licenses are on the server and on the factory floors. It also can provide reports on Digital Product Key (DPK) usage. As we have reports of how many licenses used and what machines are used. SMART has ultimate control of Digital Product Keys (DPKs). Never lose a digital license again!
Re-injection of Digital Product Keys (DPKs)
Retail returns and the pain of finding the original key are a thing of the past with SMART. This makes a 5-10 minute manual process, in to a few seconds automated process.
If you are supplying rental units, once received back, simply wipe the computer, reload the OS and reinject the original MAR Digital Product Key (DPK) at the push of a button
Never need to do manual reporting again. Satisfy all Microsoft requirements at a touch of a button
Recovery Partition Key Injection
All the digital keys are injected into the recovery partition. So if a customer factory resets a computer it will be less likely to be lost and can be recovered without the need for the customer to contact you
A completely unique feature by SMART. We can certify the Windows load and version, that a MAR Digital Product Key (DPK) has been used, the BIOS version, which country the unit was refurbished in and lastly, that all drivers are present. This ensures peace of mind when shipping and closes the reuse loop back to the client
SMART has limitless injection capabilities
SMART has no real limits on how many keys it can inject at one time. If you are running Microsoft Windows Server this will allow up to 65,000 simultaneous connections. As long as your infrastructure will support this, so will SMART.
SMART is an add, not an instead of
SMART is an add-on for the MAR community, not an instead of. If you are using the Microsoft Windows Deployment Services (WDS) for loading Windows with paper licenses, then SMART can just be added onto the end of that. It can also be used in conjunction with other software like Aiken Workbench. The idea behind SMART is to enhance your business, not hinder it.
MDOS Server protection
All companies will want to limit access to the MDOS client where their digital keys are stored. One wrong move could break the server and lose the licenses. This is why we recommend strong back up of the MDOS Server. However, with SMART’s Web App, all the data on the MDOS Server and more is kept in the company's own SQL DB. This can be accessed by anyone in the company. This gives protection to the MDOS Server and at the same time gives the live data to the people that need it, like the purchasers and admin staff.
Windows Version Protection
Never inject Windows 10 Home Digital Product Key (DPK) into Windows 10 Pro or vice versa
Force Driver check
Never ship out a unit with missing drivers. Do not allow a key to be injected without all drivers being present.
Audit and reporting that shows all units went out with all drivers present
Force activation ensures that the MAR Digital Product Key (DPK) is the key that is used to activate Wndows and not the OEM key in the BIOS. This ensures that as a MAR / TPR, you are fulfilling your contractual obligations with Microsoft
