When to Consider Switching Your MDM Solution: Three Key Signs

When to Consider Switching Your MDM Solution: Three Key Signs

Managing Apple and Android devices can be a daunting task. Whether it’s handling new user onboarding, deploying new devices, or keeping applications up-to-date, the challenges can quickly become overwhelming. However, there is a solution to these persistent pain points: transitioning to a more efficient Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution.

In this article, we’ll explore the signs that indicate it’s time to switch to Applivery’s MDM solution, designed to streamline Apple and Android device management.

1) You're Missing Out on Zero-Touch Enrollment

One of the most critical signs that your current MDM solution may need an upgrade is the absence of zero-touch enrollment. If your organization frequently onboards new devices, operates at higher volumes, or has geographically distributed users, you should be utilizing zero-touch enrollment.

Zero-touch enrollment simplifies the process by allowing devices to be linked to your company before shipment, eliminating the need for physical access to each device. With Automated Device Enrollment, devices are automatically enrolled in your MDM as they go through the setup process. If your current MDM doesn’t support zero-touch enrollment, and you find yourself manually enrolling every new device, it’s a clear signal that you need a more efficient solution.

2) Challenges in Application Management

Managing applications is another crucial aspect of MDM, and Applivery’s solution excels in this regard. Using personal Apple IDs for app purchases can lead to complications, such as the need to provide gift cards or reimburse employees when they leave the company, taking purchased apps with them. This scenario is not only cumbersome but also costly.

Applivery’s MDM solution streamlines the software management process by enabling centralized control of app distribution via Apple Business Manager. It grants you the flexibility to deliver apps to users based on their specific requirements, regardless of whether they use corporate or personal devices. Furthermore, in the event of an employee departure, you can effortlessly revoke company-owned software from their personal devices and reassign the license.

Moreover, keeping apps up-to-date is crucial for security, and Applivery’s solution makes it effortless. It offers efficient app update management, ensuring that users have access to the latest and most secure versions without manual intervention.

3) You are suffering from range dispersion

Managing settings and configurations for different users and devices can become a nightmare if not done efficiently. Applivery’s MDM solution provides the control you need without overcomplicating the process. Excessive control can lead to configuration overload, making it challenging to track what’s installed where and causing unintended consequences.

With Applivery, you can efficiently scope apps and settings, avoiding unnecessary complexity. The result is a streamlined and manageable approach to Apple device management, ensuring that your configurations are precise and straightforward.

Making the Switch

Changing MDM solution may seem like a complex project, but with Applivery it is not and the advantages are worth it.

If you find that your current MDM solution is causing you frustration, impeding your daily operations, or monopolizing your time and resources, it’s time to consider a switch. With the right MDM solution, you can regain valuable time, energy, and resources, allowing you to focus on more critical strategic priorities. Applivery’s MDM solution is here to make your Apple device management more efficient, leaving you with a sense of relief and newfound productivity.
