What does client management mean?
Notes Client Management exists in all companies, but in different forms. One can either try to solve all problems with IBM Desktop Policies, or practice the inefficient yet very common one-on-one client management i.e. identifying and resolving problems when an end user logs it to the helpdesk.
Client management with panagenda MarvelClient means avoiding helpdesk calls in advance through efficient and seamless optimization. Ensure that your desired client configuration is loaded at every client startup. From a new employee’s first client startup to new devices for existing staff as well as every single client startup. MarvelClient completely personalizes and optimizes all your clients. From laptops and desktops to virtual clients (Citrix, Windows Terminal Server, VDI) and IBM Notes browser plug-in clients.
What can I configure and standardize with MarvelClient Manage?
Principally, the possibilities with MarvelClient are very diverse. Some popular examples include:
- Desktop and Citrix clients get a connection document, laptops get two
- Depending on their department and role, employees are automatically privy to certain databases
- Manage Desktop Icons, Bookmarks, local Replicas, Replicator pages and Replicator settings
- Immediate rollout and removal of plugins for the sidebar – without repetitive rebooting the clients
- Configuring social components, such as IBM Sametime and IBM Connections settings
- Environment documents are always synchronized with the public address book – including delegates
- Regular clean-up for optimal client stability and performance
Can I use MarvelClient to preconfigure IBM Notes clients on new devices?
Yes, you can configure all client settings according to company-specific or department-specific stipulations for the initial setup.
What makes MarvelClient so special?
With panagenda MarvelClient you get absolute control over all your IBM Notes clients. This allows for cost-optimized operation all year round and keeps your clients up-to-date.
The initial client setup, efficient roaming, and endless configuration options are just some of the reasons that make MarvelClient a state-of-the-art solution.With up to 15,000 changes per second, MarvelClient is the world’s fastest IBM Notes client management solution!
How can I prevent 80% of helpdesk calls with MarvelClient?
MarvelClient offers you a variety of ways to resolve user problems even before they arise. This starts with self-healing clients, where unintentional misconfigurations are reset when restarting, and ends with the automatic takeover of server-side changes, such as consolidations and server migrations. There is so much more between these spectrums: for example, the real-time monitoring of the clients preventing unwanted actions to be taken by specific users or groups, such as deleting databases (locally or on the server) even if the necessary rights exist.

Can I also use MarvelClient for really big consolidations?
Yes, no problem for the fastest client management solution out there!

Overall, MarvelClient led 25 billion changes within two years.
