Currently Nik Collection is a .app installer, which makes it impossible to mass deploy. A lot of companies remove admin rights and use software such as Jamf or Munki to deploy software to end user machines without the user having to enter admin credentials.
With the current .app install experience we have to send a tech to each machine to install the software. If the installer was converted to a .pkg installer we could simply import it into Munki and the end user could install it without admin credentials. We would be able to import any updates into Munki and deploy them when we are sure they’re stable. The end user would be able to update all of the software on their machine with one click.
A .pkg installer will create a much better end user experience in a corporate environment and will remove the added work and downtime of a tech installing and updating Nik Collection.
