Can you provide some more info.

Are you on a Windows Domain?  
How many clients and what OS are they running?
Do you need to deploy MSI and EXE and other type's of packages.

There are many ways to deploy software and it depends on your environment requirements and budget usually.

In a Microsoft domain environment you would be wise to begin with looking at deploying software using Group Policy.  That is free but has limitations.  If you investigate this option it will help you determine if you need something else and why.  Once you know what requirements you can look at 3rd party solutions of which there are many.  You may get lucky and be able to get by with using Group Poliicy.

It's a mix environment where we have a windows domain running windows 2003 and 10 clients running windows vista. The other is on another separate workgroup network with a mix of 28 xp clients and 4 windows 7  clients.  Deployment packages are mainly exe.
