Supported Apple device management tools
Apple Business Manager and Apple School Manager
Apple Business Manager (ABM) is Apple’s own web portal where IT administrators can see Apple devices and app licenses purchased by their organization and assign the devices for remote management. Apple School Manager (ASM) is a similar program for schools and other educational institutions.
Apple Business Manager was launched in 2018, integrating Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) into a single platform.
Apple Device Enrollment Program (Apple DEP)
Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) is part of Apple Business/School Manager and it helps IT admins to simplify initial device setup. With Apple DEP, you can automate and enforce the enrollment of your devices and ship devices directly to device users and manage them straight out of the box.
In practice, DEP enrolls your devices in Miradore when a user starts up the device for the first time or does a factory reset. After that, the management solution sets up your device according to your organization’s IT policies defined in Miradore.
Apple Volume Purchase Program (Apple VPP)
Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) is part of Apple Business/School Manager. With VPP, you can buy and install apps for users silently. Moreover, you can buy all your licenses in one place, and distribute and revoke them as necessary.
Provide support for device users with Mac remote access
When you need to provide more hands-on support for your device users, you can start remote assistance sessions directly from Miradore with a TeamViewer integration.
- Start attended support sessions with remote access.
- View all necessary device data in Miradore.
- Change device configurations remotely.
Addcom IT helps a school take control of their iPads
Addcom IT needed to help their customer manage an unruly fleet of around 70 iPads and other tablets. As a result, Addcom IT’s technical team suggested a solution that was affordable and easy to use.
“The ICT coordinator became very impressed with the solution as it offers them an easy to use web portal. Sending apps to iPads is completed in a few clicks instead of downloading manually onto each iPad. This also means devices are not missed when apps need to be installed.”
