Apple Device Enrolment Program

The Device Enrolment Program, a part of the Apple Deployment Program is an online service designed to help businesses and educational institutions easily deploy and configure Apple iOS and Mac OS X devices with their Mobile Device Management solution. The Device Enrolment Program is designed for institutionally-owned devices that have been procured from Vita Enterprise Solutions (Device Enrolment Program not compatible with BYOD programs). 

Zero Touch for IT

The Device Enrolment Program (DEP) simplifies initial device setup by automating Mobile Device Management (MDM) enrolment and supervision of devices during setup. The MDM enrolment process can be streamlined and simplified, by skipping certain Setup Assistant screens, and minimising the need for IT to pre-configure the devices, so users can start using them faster. In conjunction with our staging services, Vita Enterprise Solutions delivers a ‘Ready to Use’ device, where the device is fully configured, pre-enrolled with MDM and apps are downloaded when the user receives it. Users simply need turn on the device and they are ready to go.

Mandatory & Lockable MDM

DEP can be configured to require automatic enrolment into your MDM. This ensures that devices are automatically configured and secured out of the box to be compliant with your institutions policies. Additionally, the MDM profile can be locked down to ensure that it cannot be removed from a device. When enabled, users simply cannot opt out of MDM.

Wireless Supervision

Supervision provides a higher level of device management for institutionally-owned iOS devices. It allows additional restrictions, including turning off iMessage, AirDrop, or even factory reset. It also provides additional device configurations and features, such as Activation Lock Bypass, Single App Mode and silent App push. With DEP, you can enable supervision mode Over-the-Air on a device as part of the setup process.

Volume Purchase Program

The Volume Purchase Program (VPP) makes it simple to find, buy, and distribute apps in bulk for your employees. With VPP Managed Distribution, the administrator can assign and revoke apps (paid & free) to authorised users/devices via the MDM software. When an app is no longer needed by a user/ device, the license is able to be revoked and reassigned to a different user/device. VPP and MDM can also be used to distribute and assign apps directly to a device, eliminating the requirement of having an Apple ID configured on the device.

Vita Enterprise Solutions staging provides an improved user experience through streamlining of processes and device configuration, meaning your users' devices are up and running faster and more efficiently. Some of the ways we achieve this include:

  • Use of Asset Management systems
  • Managing the life cycle of your devices
  • Asset tagging
  • Aiding with installation of accessories such as screen protectors, cases and Bluetooth accessories
  • Full testing of all devices prior shipping
  • No DOA (Dead on Arrival)
  • Tracking of shipped devices
  • Ensuring the device is correctly linked to DEP and MDM
  • Deliver a truly ready to use device, fully configured and pre-enrolled with your MDM
  • No waiting time for users (Apps downloads, etc.)
  • Supply of Institution’s Welcome Pack (user guide)
  • Ability to supply custom boxes (if requested)
  • Connection Management and installation of SIM cards
