PerlAutoInstaller (PAI) is a software deployment tool. You can use it to deploy a large range of applications silently for your users from a centrally managed server. The main advantages of PAI are automatic udapte of agents from the server, high security level using the HTTPS protocol, and a certificate authority to restrict software deployment to your company. PAI can manage a group of clients. No database backend is needed. All output from an installation attempt is returned to the server so that you can see why an installation failed.
