Following the recent release of Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP), Lightspeed Systems announced an update to their mobile device management (MDM) solution. Mobile Manager is now integrated with DEP, allowing schools more control, ease of management, and increased functionality of their mobile learning program.
When integrated with Mobile Manager, the new Device Enrollment Program offers IT administrators key features needed for device implementation and management. Mobile devices can now be enrolled in Mobile Manager wirelessly with policies already in place—ensuring devices get out of the box and into the hands of students and teachers more quickly and efficiently. In addition, the integration also offers schools more control over devices, particularly the ability to prevent users from removing Mobile Manager profile and policies—keeping students and devices safe.
“Schools have been asking for these capabilities,” shares Rob Chambers, VP of Product Development and Lightspeed Systems. “We’re excited that with the new Apple DEP program, we are able to continue to meet the needs of schools deploying iOS devices.”
With the seamless integration between DEP and Mobile Manager already in place, schools using the MDM from Lightspeed Systems can implement these benefits now. By following a few simple clicks in Mobile Manager, devices can be enrolled, configured, and ready to be used for learning.
This latest update to Mobile Manager ensures a streamlined and more efficient level of management for schools.
