Managed Software Center

Managed software Center is an App included on Gustavus imaged Macintosh computers running OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) through 10.15 (Catalina). Managed software center is being deprecated November 2021.

It is a self-service tool that allows you to install Gustavus-owned software and printers without needing a member of GTS to locate the software and install it for you. Managed Software Center also installs OS X software updates.
