Client Management Tools

Client management tools—once referred to as PC configuration life cycle management (PCCLM)—refer to how client systems are managed. Client systems are systems that are extensively involved with the operation of computer software, operating systems, or other functionalities of computers. These tools allow for these clients to be appropriately monitored and managed. Most of the time, these tools operate automatically, in the background of your computer operations. They may require periodic updates or configuration.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Client Management Tools

Most small businesses will not regularly engage with client management tools. However, this may change if a business requires manual adjusting of any of their critical computer operating software. Every small business requires one of two things: a robust understanding of what client management tools are, or access to IT professionals that can operate and optimize these tools.
