Service Timer is a networking tool developed for administrators who are looking to manage services on remote computers. With it you are able to control LAN services by starting, stopping or restarting them whenever you want to.
Right off the bat, Service Timer is an application for those who are familiarized with how such tools work. If you’re just starting with remote service management, Service Timer won’t make it easy on you.
The application does display a user-friendly interface which makes it easy to operate and configure but only as long as you know what you’re actually doing. All of its main functions and features can be accessed from the main window making it a practical solution for scenarios where you need to move fast.
Quickly scan your entire network
Service Timer enables you to scan networks in order to obtain a detailed list of all the workstations along with the services that they are running. To identify the previously mentioned, all you have to do is run the ‘Computer Scan’ function, set the IP address range and click one button.
The application works very fast in obtaining the information you need and provides details such as computer name, domain and OS architecture. Apart from that, you get a few details about the scan results which can alert you of any possible errors and restrictions.
The latter brings us to an aspect that is worth mentioning. Service Timer provides remote access to services and enable you to control them but in order to do that, the computers you want to connect to need to have a specific number of Windows services running. If they are not active, then you or the PC user needs to manually activate them which is not really all that convenient.
All in all, Service Timer is a handy application to have as it can diminish your workload but you do need to have some prior experience in the matter in order to fully benefit from the application.
