SimpleMDM product overview

What is SimpleMDM?

SimpleMDM is a mobile device manager for organizations that need to manage a large number of corporate or employee owned Apple devices including iPhones, iPads, and computers running macOS. The platform enables users to deploy enterprise and volume purchase apps, initialize devices in bulk, and get greater control with iOS supervision features.

Key benefits of using SimpleMDM

  • SimpleMDM provides full support for the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) with device-level assignment.

  • The solution's iOS supervised mode allows additional configuration and restriction options such as arranging and hiding apps, activation locks, and force app installs and updates.

  • The platform alerts users of issues concerning Apple IDs, device permissions, licensing and enterprise certificates, and can recover from them automatically.

  • SimpleMDM provides a powerful API (RESTful JSON), providing organizations with access to their account and devices, and integration with existing infrastructures.

  • Apple supervision allows for even greater control over devices through SimpleMDM than is generally allowed by iOS.

    What tipped the scale for me in the end was the friendliness and willingness to help that I experienced with the SimpleMDM staff.

    SimpleMDM has been a fantastic tool to use to manage the thousand of devices we have deployed in the field. The features to customize the different components required for our deployment are amazing.

    I like SimpleMDM because the price is competitive, it just works and I feel that I'm using the best in breed product in the MDM space. Just make sure you don't need to support Android.

    Cons
    The Groups should be collapsible. Exports should be able to contain everything (the group field is missing) and there's no filter/modification/selection on group view.

    When I first starting enrolling devices I was a bit lost and enrolled a few devices incorrectly. I had to some searching of my own to finally get the devices to enroll correctly.

    Great device management tool

    Reviewed 10 months ago

    SimpleMDM has been a lifesaver to manage our large amount of devices deployed to customers.

    Pros

    SimpleMDM has been a fantastic tool to use to manage the thousand of devices we have deployed in the field. The features to customize the different components required for our deployment are amazing. SimpleMDM offers great visibility, device management and device control.

    Cons

    Nothing really to complain about the software. Customer support has been responsive to all our queries, which are usually related to third parties changing device's features.

    The best management option for our mobile workforce

    Our company sells customer loyalty software and services. Our most popular product is a mobile app and iPad combination that retailers place at their registers, allowing these retailers to incentivize their customers to shop with them often. The service we offer is fully managed, meaning we develop the software, deploy and maintain the iPads running the software, and handle all other service and maintenance...

    It's a solid product, but a few small changes would make it awesome.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    It's cheaper than mobileIron or Airwatch. Mostly, this allows us to more easily manage DEP enrolled iOS devices.

    Pros

    Cheap, intuitive, basic features are very easy to use. Support is quick to respond and offers helpful advice/solutions.

    Cons

    To be awesome: For the love of god fix your UI - please.... The Groups should be collapsible. Exports should be able to contain everything (the group field is missing) and there's no filter/modification/selection on group view. Also, nothing can be copied, so multiple similar groups have to be created and then re-created by hand. To be better than awesome (better than Airwatch/MobileIron): The...

    We're an outsourced US-based outsourced IT firm with clients in the medical space. I initially used Meraki to manage one of our clients but had all sorts of problems. Apps not deploying when they should, configurations not working, and devices that stopped responding after about a month. When we needed MDM for two other customers, I decided to try SimpleMDM instead. I had zero problems with our...

    Great software to control company phones/pads.

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Controlling company devices

    Pros

    The ease of use of setting phones and pads up with the software. Easy way to control devices, push out apps or remove along with preventing users to users to download un-needing apps.

    Cons

    More options needed to prevent users from using their devices as hotspots. The apps purchased from Apple VPP have been increasingly long in showing-up in available apps to push to devices.
