Raynet Launches New Software Packaging Innovation

PADERBORN, Germany, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

RayPack: New packaging solution for quality-conscious companies

Raynet GmbH, the leading European company for software packaging and application lifecycle management products, will launch a new solution for software packaging in summer 2014: RayPack! With Symantec havingphased out the once globally dominant WISE Package Studio almost two years ago, the Paderborn-based manufacturer is stirring up the remaining oligopolistic packaging tool market for company infrastructures in terms of service and price. Raynet's sales will be supported by several partners. In a roadshow that will take it across Europe, the U.S. and the Far East, the product manufacturer will seek to impress interested parties and customers with the benefits of its new product. Interested parties in Europe can already register for the event (http://www.raypack.net).

Raynet's new approach is primarily aimed at the direct and uncomplicated creation of software packages. Large administrative overheads are dispensed with, and in their place Raynet provides an intuitive operating interface. The Paderborn-based company also has an affordable price in store for the target group of freelancers and one-man companies!  

The support, set up according to German quality standards, also has a great deal to offer, which has been designed to provide quick and effective help. Raynet offers support 24/7 and has already successfully provided this service for its other products.

For all of those who have to use this product daily, the new ultra-modern user interface makes routine daily work easier. Additional authorisation-dependent feature selections and configurable dashboards are considered an indulgence in this field of IT infrastructure.

The packaging solution now to be released as part of the roadshow (information and registration at http://www.raypack.net) is not based on pure theory. The Paderborn-based company has been in the packaging business since 1999 and is among the top three players in Europe; it also competes worldwide. The Raynet experts have created tens of thousands of packages since then, both at major companies as well as in the SME environment. Raynet has, for example, set up and operated software packaging factories and even developed standards for well-known manufacturers in this field. All this experience has been incorporated into the new RayPack product. "Alongside the in-depth training of all employees, this is one of our greatest assets," says Ragip Aydin, managing partner of Raynet GmbH. "In addition to the simple packaging of software, we have also developed the model of the virtual software packaging factory," continues Aydin, "which we build specifically for explicit customers and which we also operate as a Raynet software packaging plant in the managed service business model. The scope and diversity of packaging software is based on experience that you cannot buy". That will be music to practitioners ears!

Raynet sells this product mainly through its highly qualified partners in Germany, Benelux, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Austria. Requests from possible partners have already been received from elsewhere in Europe as well as from the U.S. and the Far East, and these are now being negotiated. Until then, Raynet's direct sales department is available for enquiries ([email protected]). Current partners are IBN-Distribution GmbH Berlin, bbi Software AG in Baar, Switzerland, and Professional Development Systems BV (PDS) in Culemborg (South of Utrecht).

The RayPack solution supports a wide range of formats (e.g. MSI, VSA, etc.), target operating systems (Linux, Macintosh, Windows XP, 7 and 8) and distribution systems (deployment systems, e.g. RayManageSoft, Symantec's CMS and even Microsoft's SCCM). The RayPack components allow companies to implement well-structured work processes for controlling package evaluation, creation, processing, import, export, review, storage and deployment.

To manage these processes, RayPack operates integrated components and external connectors, thus ensuring interoperability with market-leading workflow, deployment and storage systems. Detailed product descriptions can be downloaded from Download or can be requested directly from Raynet at [email protected].

In addition to the autonomous use of RayPack as a separate tool, RayPack can also function as an integral part of the Raynet product family RaySuite, which provides a comprehensive and integrated total solution for application lifecycle management in companies. This solution ranges from the inventory and licensing of software, through its packaging and quality assurance, to roll-out in productive environments. The products can even be used under a uniform user interface and with a central repository, which results in significant synergies. Third-party solutions can also be integrated into this product family, for example customers already using existing products or wanting to use solutions from other manufacturers. Raynet rounds off its product offer with an intensive range of services, which run from simple installation to the implementation of entire projects or the outsourcing of the packaging. The offer is completed by a corresponding support and maintenance package.
