Workplace by Facebook released a Microsoft Installer Package to ease the process for information technology teams dealing with its Workplace Chat features.

The MSI will enable IT teams to install and manage Workplace Chat using Group Policy/Microsoft System Center, allowing them to deploy the feature on multiple machines across their organizations.

The new MSI is available to administrators of the social network’s offering for businesses under a new section of their admin panels, Workplace Apps.

Workplace by Facebook said in a blog post, “We want to make it as easy as possible for organizations to deploy and use Workplace Chat. It’s something that a lot of our customers large and small have been asking for. This important update will give admins and IT teams better tools to roll-out Workplace Chat to every user in the organization.” David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
