To set limits on what your employees can do with their devices, you can adjust the settings for all devices via a Mobile Device Management system.

What is Apple Business Manager?

Apple Business Manager

Apple Business Manager, formerly Device Enrollment Program or DEP, is a piece of software. This way, the IT department of your company can quickly set up a large number of Apple devices. Via your Mobile Device Management system, you can determine how you want to set up these devices. Think of installing specific apps and software or determining the possibilities that your employees have or don't have with their device. These settings are configured wirelessly via Apple Business Manager.

What are the main benefits of Apple Business Manager?

Apple Business Manager simplicity

Simplicity

If you want to give a smartphone to many employees, you also have to set up many devices. That might take a while manually. With Apple Business Manager, it'll be a fast, simultaneous, wireless, and remote process. Apple Business Manager is based on the serial and IMEI number of Apple devices. The devices don't even have to be removed from the box to set them up. When you start the device for the first time, you'll immediately see your business settings. Even when the devices are in use, you can easily manage them remotely.

Apple Business Manager safety

Safety

Safety first,, especially when it comes to company data. That safety is guaranteed with Apple Business Manager. There is a mandatory and lockable MDM registration. As a result, the user is obliged to adhere to the settings. A thief who steals the device won't be able to use it. In addition, the employer can decide what options your employees have. Can't take photos in certain areas of the building? You can make sure the camera doesn't work in those zones.

Which devices do you put in Apple Business Manager?

Apple Business Manager devices

You can use Apple Business Manager to set up:

  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • iPod
  • Apple TV
  • iMac
  • MacBook

Note: It's not possible to place previously purchased Apple devices in Apple Business Manager. This is because Apple Business Manager is based on the serial and IMEI numbers of the devices that you purchase. If you're already enrolled in the previous Device Enrollment Program (DEP), it's possible to upgrade your existing programs to Apple Business Manager.

How do I start with Apple Business Manager?

Start Apple Business Manager

You use Apple Business Manager with your MDM software. Unlike Apple Business Manager, this isn't free. You can connect Apple Business Manager to your MDM system via a reseller ID. It's important that you apply for Apple Business Manager when purchasing iPhone, iPad, or MacBook models for your employees. Previously purchased devices can't be placed in Apple Business Manager. This is due to the serial and IMEI numbers of the devices. Your warranty will always run through the agency that supplied your devices.

Conclusion

Are you going to use a lot of Apple devices at your company? In that case, the combination of MDM and Apple Business Manager is a must! It's simple, safe, and saves you lots of time. There's better ways to spend that. Do you want to order Apple Business Manager? Contact Coolblue Zakelijk.
