Mobile Device Management
Before Apple products can be put into the hands of students and teachers, a method of management should be considered and Isometric has the knowledge and capability to provide education institutions with a powerful, yet simple, solution to manage and maintain their iOS and macOS devices.
Isometric use and recommend Lightspeed MDM as our preferred mobile device management tool. Our engineers have over a decades worth of experience supporting and deploying Lightspeed in an education environment. They have found that Lightspeed is a comprehensive, easy to use, and affordable system that allows schools to quickly and easily manage iPads and Mac products.
Lightspeed is a simplified, yet comprehensive UI with powerful controls within an intuitive interface. It allows you to push apps and manage app inventory from any web browser whilst letting users access approved apps. You can also easily recover and reassign apps.
This MDM also gives you the ability to remotely set hundreds of policies and restrictions across every device and OS to control everything including Wi-Fi, cameras and OS updates over the air. All whilst giving you the control to be able to download approved apps from the Self-service App Portal, which can be configured by group, year, school and more.
