ThinPATH PC converts legacy PCs to thin clients.
ThinPATH PC software provides access to server-based applications with
no additional investment in desktop hardware. NCD's comprehensive understanding

dependable, cost-effective solution with minimal impact on existing
Reduce desktop cost of ownership.
A corporate PC user can generally install, update and configure their
desktop applications, which can create an I.T. nightmare of help desk
calls and service dispatches to deal with ailing PCs. As access to local
applications decreases, however, system reliability and stability improves-which
translates to fewer demands on overburdened I.T. resources and a lower
cost of desktop ownership.
Dedicated user interface protects PCs from changes.
ThinPATH PC presents the end user with a pre-configured user interface
that allows access to only designated applications. Unless authorized,
users can make no changes to the list of available applications or servers
or to the system configuration options. ThinPATH PC also provides the
option to disable local log in. In other words, local user login is
not required at the PC since all authentications can be centrally managed
on the application system.
Software distribution performed over the network.
ThinPATH PC can be distributed to PCs across a wide range of networks.
By utilizing Internet Information Services 5.0, software distribution
can be tailored to fit both LAN and WAN desktop connections. A web server
on the corporate network provides software installation to the PC. To
access software that is newly installed on the server, the user simply
directs their Internet Explorer browser to a specified location. This
process makes it a snap to update software components such as the Citrix
Eliminates desktop hardware upgrades.
In almost every case, ThinPATH PC's minimal desktop hardware requirements
are met by corporate PC desktops. Which means no cash outlay for additional
memory or hard disk space and no further demand on I.T. time for its
Flexibility to work in different environments.
ThinPATH PC supports a wide range of PC network configurations as well
as security systems such as virtual private networks. It also works
in conjunction with other asset management tools.
Secures the desktop.
ThinPATH PC features a wide range of configuration options that allow
the product to be customized for unique environments. To avoid accidental
system configurations, some sites may require users to have minimal
access to low-level hardware configuration. Other sites may want to
restrict presentation of available hosts on the network.
Accommodates server-based or locally installed applications.
With ThinPATH PC, applications run from Citrix MetaFrame, Nfuse, Terminal
Services or a web server; however, the program need not be used exclusively
for server-based applications. Since certain applications may not run
efficiently on a multi-user server, users may need to run them locally.
Other users may require access to a specialized local device such as
a CD-RW drive. ThinPATH PC offers systems administrators the option
to select from a predefined list of local applications or they can create
their own unique choices.
