Atea has more than two decades experience of application packaging and we set a pride in delivering the absolute highest quality of application packages.
It might sound easy, but developing highly customized application packages for automatic software distribution is not an easy task. It requires expertise and working with this discipline on a daily basis. That is what we do at Atea – it is our core business.
Ateas custom-made application packaging service not only guarantees you fully personalized application packages compliant with all your packaging standards, but also an easy and effective delivery process. It has to be easy to do business with each other – either use our web-based AppOrder portal or Ateas premier solution for application portfolio management called Application Manager.

Custom-made Packaging 101
Ateas Custom-made Packaging Service consists of 7 phase:
Those 7 phases not only ensure a timely delivery, but also as clearly seen the highest quality, since QA and testing is an integrated part of Ateas packaging process.
During the package request you as a customer upload the application media and your choice of installation and configuration information. A packager will be assigned to your request and the packaging request is checked for completeness and any issues get in cooperation with you resolved. The package is developed by Atea with state-of-the-art tools – everything according to your instructions and your packaging standards. Last, but not least, the developed package is thoroughly tested in our internal systems – including import and deployment through SCCM – and if needed/wished for, with your corporate OS image. The documentation is created and delivered to you as a customer for the final UAT (User Acceptance Test).
Every customer using the Atea Custom-made Packaging service has a Technical Project Manager (TPM) assigned and thus issues and RFCs get resolved in the most efficient manner. At Atea we believe in direct communication being the most effective way of cooperating with each other and thus direct access to your TPM is ensured at all times.
Take a look at Atea Application Manager – the premier solution for world-class application portfolio management including a structured process for application packaging, automatic deployment to SCCM and fully automated tools for application discovery and user acceptance tests.

We need installation, configuration and testing instructions plus the installation media.
The different instructions can be made available to us by screendumps in Word or PDF-files - the time consuming way - or even better for both you and us by using our premier documentation tooll called AppDisco. With AppDisco you automatically record small filmclips on how you would like a certain application to be installed and configured. Instead of spending up to 60 minutes by creating screendumps for an application, you can automatically record the installation and configuration routine. AppDisco is an integrated part of Ateas premier application portfolio management solution called Application Manager.
We support and deliver all of the following packaging formats.
Yes, of course we will.
Make them available to us before the application packaging and we will follow them. On top of that we will also give you feedback on your company packaging standards based on our extensive application packaging knowledge - we call this CSI (Continous Service Improvement) and it is just one of the many benefits you get by letting Atea package your applications.
We work with 3 different priorities when delivering custom-made application packages.
Our normal SLA is priority 2 and we expect 60% of all packaging request from a customer to be priority 2. Up to 40% of all packaging requests from a customer can be priority 1, while the VIP priority is limited to two (2) requests per month and a direct and reachable contact person is required. Additional charges for priority VIP application packages may apply.
If you are in need different SLAs, please contact us for a proposal.
Yes, we can offer that.
If we have packaged at least 90% of your application portfolio - for example during a migration project - we can offer you a yearly flatrate maintenaince (FRM) for all your application packages. Please contact your Atea account manager for further details.
Yes, we do.
But, please be aware of that application packages are developed only for a targeted client platform and based on information described in your base image configuration. Custom-made application packages will be valid as long as the target client platform or configuration is not changed in any way that could impact the previously and delivered custom-made application package functionality.
First of all it is important to note, that Atea is working with a flat fee when talking about custom-made application packages. We do not differ pricing when talking about complexity and thus we by that eliminate the administrative overhead of determining if an application to be packaged is easy, medium or diffucult to package. The flat fee gives transparency and predictability for our customers - they know how much an application packages will cost...no hidden or changed fees.
