Raynet Releases its New Packaging Solution
PADERBORN, Germany, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
Announcement of great success prompts people to act quickly
Raynet GmbH, Europe’s leading provider of software packaging and life cycle management
application products, releases its new packaging solution RayPack for use, following a
Software experts at Raynet had also not anticipated the form this would take: no
sooner had they completed the successful roadshow on their new software packaging solution
than they saw a real run on the product. More than 300 visitors and prospective buyers
registered to be part of the initial trial during and shortly after a product roadshow
organised by Raynet through Germany, Switzerland and for the Benelux countries. Numerous
further enquiries from home and abroad, including overseas, clearly demonstate the obvious
need in this software management segment. Raynet used this push to release its new
packaging solution RayPack with release 1.0 for immediate use.
The so-called software packaging allows company software to be prepared in such a way
that it can be installed or deinstalled safely in large infrastructures on thousands of
workstations. A functionality without which larger companies could no longer operate their
business-critical IT. Raynet GmbH has already been supplying its packaging services for 15
years and has not simply gained extensive knowledge but also in-depth experience. The
tools available on the market for software packaging were not adequate for it, were too
expensive and not good enough in terms of their performance features.
“Tools in this market segment today often overlook the interrelationships within the
overall working process,” according to Raynet GmbH’s Managing Director Ragip Aydin.
“Modern approaches take account of the groundwork involved in packaging, and that the
implemented software installations and deinstallations also have to be included in the
licence balance sheet. Focused tools are therefore no longer required, but comprehensive
solutions that offer corresponding possibilities of integration with the links anchored in
the process. This applies both to interface design and to data connection integration.”
This is clearly how many potential customers who visited Raynet’s roadshow events see
things. They promise significant synergies: staff can be flexibly deployed and are no
longer trained on just the one tool. Data that has already been captured can be used again
during the course of a subsequent process and does not have to be laboriously entered
That does not just save time but also avoids numerous typing and copying mistakes.
The product consists of an editor for packages in native and RayPack formats
(PackDesigner), a tool for re-packaging (PackRecorder) that records installation processes
and transfers them into native formats or RayPack project files.
There is also the PackBench (release 1.1) that takes care of process control for
packaging activities. A central library for managing package information (PackLib, release
1.1.), together with a tool for automating the mass conversion of packages (PackBot, rel.
1.3.) round off the solution. Raynet also presented a comprehensive roadmap for the
product, giving an appetite for further functionalities and integration approaches.
Alongside the autonomous application of RayPack as an independent tool, RayPack may
also act as an integral part of the Raynet product family, RaySuite. Raynet provides a
comprehensive and integrated overall solution for the application management life cycle in
companies. This solution extends from the inventorisation and licensing of software to its
packaging and quality assurance right through to rolling out products in live
The products may even be used under a standard user interface and with a central
repository, which provides significant synergies. Third-party solutions can be integrated
into this product family, e.g. if the customer already uses existing products or wants to
use solutions from other manufacturers. Raynet completes its range of products with its
strong service package.
This extends from a simple installation offer right through to implementing complete
projects or outsourcing packages. The offer is rounded off by a corresponding support and
Alongside sales editions of RayPack for companies to use themselves, there are also
sales models for service providers and freelancers. Raynet also markets the product for
IBN distribution in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, BBI software in Switzerland and the
distributor PDS in Utrecht in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.
