  19. 19. What IT Pros say about SolarWinds Patch Manager “It used to take four hours per patch for packaging and testing and about a week to deployeach patch,” said Jay. “Now with Patch Manager, it takes an hour tops - It is incredible.”- Jay Harper - IT Network Administrator, Terminix Service, Inc. “I’m very happy with this software and the support services offered. I’m not sure how Solar Winds taking over will affect the company. In the short term, though, I’ve seen that there has been a large price decrease (almost 50%!) and a couple discounts added on. This will definitely decrease some headaches I’ve gotten from working with other products that either require an agent, or haven’t been updated since 1998. The key thing for me with this software is the third-party packages, but I’m not going to complain about better reporting and more granular control” - Lauren Malhoit, TechRepublic “What I especially liked about Patch Manager was that it is a big time saver. The software didn’t have a steep learning curve and it didn’t require third party patches to be manually packaged like some competing solutions do.” - Brien M.
