PolicyPak for Google Sketchup

Once Sketchup is deployed, you don’t want your best talent wasting time,and calling the helpdesk about a problem.

A problem which they, themselves likely instigated by messing with your desired Sketchup application settings.

Your organization can’t afford to have them waiting on the help desk, which is why you can’t afford to put your users in charge of the administration of this or any application.

PolicyPak delivers, enforces, remediates and locks down your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Ensure your Sketchup settings are dictated and ensured using PolicyPak. Get those settings out there using Group Policy, SCCM or your own management tool. Check out this video to see how it’s done:

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface of Sketchup itself.  Like nearly all of the applications that PolicyPak supports, you can disable application updates for Sketchup so that updates are controlled by you, the administrator, and not your users..
Your users probably don’t even know what “Use hardware acceleration” even means; so configure it yourself and then hide this setting from them entirely.
You certainly don’t want your users calling the helpdesk asking your support specialists to bring back the huge project that they failed to save.  Make sure the hard work of your users is saved and preserved by managing the “Auto-save” feature within Sketchup.  Here we are enabling “ACL Lockdown” which will totally deny your users the alteration of this setting, even if they attempt to do so from the registry itself.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Sketchup, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, Java, Firefox, Lync and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing Sketchup, PolicyPak is ready for you.
