The Postal Service is adding an application to ACE computers that will allow users to schedule mandatory software installations.
The System Center Configuration Manager app lets users set up specific installation times during off-hours within a two-week window. If the user doesn’t schedule a specific time, the installations will proceed after two weeks.
Mandatory software updates and installations are periodically necessary to keep USPS systems and workstations up-to-date.
These installations often occur during the workday and require users to reboot computers or close out of applications — disruptions that can be minimized through the new application.
The System Center Configuration Manager will not be available in certain instances, such as security breaches, which require immediate software installations.
Employees who have questions should email Information Technology.
