Management & Deployment

The Apple Device Enrollment Program helps businesses and agencies easily deploy and configure iOS and OS X devices. The Device Enrollment Program provides a fast, streamlined way to deploy institutionally owned iPad and Mac units or devices that are purchased through Insight.

The Device Enrollment Program simplifies the initial setup by automating mobile device management (MDM) enrollment and supervision of devices during setup, and enables customers to configure devices without touching them.

More information on the Apple Deployment Programs is available through the Device Enrollment Program Guide.

Mobile Device Management allows agencies to easily manage their iOS & Mac devices and keep devices up-to-date with the newest software and configurations. Insight partners with AirWatch, JAMF, and MobileIron to provide MDM solutions through the Device Enrollment Program to Apple devices. IT can create deployment workflows that scale to meet your agency's needs.

Insight can also help agencies with their iPad Cellular activations through their partnerships with the carriers.

Please reach out to your Insight representative to learn more about the Device Enrollment Program, Cellular Activations, and Device Management offerings.
