Apple Has Released a Device Management Solution for Small Businesses
Maintaining and keeping their employees’ Apple devices up to date is a significant burden for many small firms. Because they typically lack skilled IT staff, customers are frequently forced to work things out independently. Utilizing Apple’s consumer support facilities when devices break down or users have issues.
Recognizing this problem, Apple purchased Fleetsmith last year. As a result, the beta of Apple Business Essentials has been revealed. A device management solution aimed directly at organizations with fewer than 500 employees.
- Apple intended to assist these customers with onboarding, supporting, and updating employee Apple devices, as well as offboarding them when employees depart.
- The Fleetsmith acquisition and the Apple Device Enrollment Program combine to provide the management component. It gives small businesses access to the same capabilities as their larger competitors. This will give them more control over the devices and ensure that they work as soon as an employee checks in.
- Admins can create users and groups if a company registers up for the service. Users are assigned to groups, and administrators can customize each group’s settings to include the number of supported devices and the amount of storage available.
