Integrate into your OS deployment process: Thin Installer uses command-line options in your SCCM task sequences

Thin Installer works with Update Retriever to pull drivers, software, and system updates from the cloud or a customized update repository on your network.

How it works

Lenovo Thin Installer saves IT time by eliminating the need to repackage updates to achieve automation. Thin Installer can be leveraged by common software distribution solutions such as SCCM to silently install updates in a targeted fashion. By providing control over the user’s experience with updates, IT can provide a better experience while achieving full compliance faster.
