Apple Configurator Provisioning

The administrator has the ability to configure and push profiles through an XML file from the Apple Configurator utility.

Mobile Application Management

MediaContact for iOS manages both applications from the Apple Store (free or paid) and private business applications (In House).
It can thus install, update or uninstall any application.
The software also provides the opportunity to create a folder of mandatory applications for devices, giving users access to applications they need for their job.
MediaContact for iOS also includes a connector with the "Volume Purchase Program", for the mass purchasing and installation of software rights for a fleet of devices.

Application kiosk (Retail Mode/Single App Mode)

Use MediaContact for iOS to launch a single application in full-screen mode, and prevent the user from accessing other applications or the device's settings.
The administrator thus ensures the device security. This is particularly necessary in the area of Retail when the device is used as an interactive device or as an additional cash desk. This application kiosk is also useful to employees on the move using a single business application.

Through the MediaContact for iOS web interface, the administrator has access to a dashboard breaking down the status of:
  • Configuration profiles
  • APNs certificates
  • VPP tokens 

Software and hardware tracking

MediaContact for iOS lets you monitor the state of administered devices: hardware or software information and also the applied configuration profiles.
