SimpleMDM Feature Reviews

Chad Hughes

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

2017-07-13

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.

Cons

To be better than awesome (better than Airwatch/MobileIron): The only big things we'd love to see is more control over user rights in order to assign tech staff to manage SimpleMDM without full access to all of the SimpleMDM, filter access to device groups, filter access to SimpleMDM controls/device commands.

MDM functionaility at a great price

2018-06-11

Pros

Enrolling process is simple and straightforward Cost per device is cheap Management of enrolled devices is simple and straightforward

Cons

The initial account setup can be a tad daunting. 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. It's all good now though. A+

The best management option for our mobile workforce

2016-06-30

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 activities. We currently manage in the neighborhood of 750 devices.

My Experience

2017-01-18

Overall, I like the layout and design of the control panel. For my purposes it may be a bit much, but it does get the job done.

Pros

The software is incredibly easy to deploy to multiple devices.

Cons

Better documentation within the app would make it more intuitive. Like tooltips or quick tutorial system.

We're able to integrate SimpleMDM with some of our other tools as well since SimpleMDM provides an API for us to program against.

The Best Bang for Your Buck iOS MDM solutions out there!

2017-07-13

Pros

It's got a robust feature set that is easy to get up and running.

Cons

SimpleMDM could have a batter UI and UX. It's not bad, but it's not super intuitive either.

Well thought out app deployment. Nice support staff.

A lot of the time apps would never show up. The interface was obtuse, too.

Great software to control company phones/pads.

2018-02-09

Controlling company devices

Pros

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.

Thanks for the review, Charles! Sorry to hear that it's been tough to track down the documentation. For future reference, our administrator documentation is available at http://support.simplemdm.com. The "Planning Your Deployment" chapter is particularly useful during the early stages.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact our support staff. We'll get right back to you.
