How Scalefusion Helps

Scalefusion is an Android Device Management tool which helps an organization to locks down the Android Device(s) in Android Kiosk Mode, which can be remotely accessed through a Device Management dashboard via an online web portal. First, the device(s) needs to be registered using Scalefusion App, which is an Android Kiosk Mode App. After Lockdown the regular screen gets replaced by Scalefusion Kiosk screen and the administrator has a remote access to the device(s) registered under his Scalefusion account.

Scalefusion offers features like Location Tracking, which tracks down the registered device(s) in real time and gives the information to the admin on the dashboard. Using the dashboard admin can choose which Apps he wants on the device(s) and remove all the unwanted apps. This will keep employees focused on using only Business related apps. Admin can also restrict the employee’s online activity using Scalefusion kiosk Browser, in which the admin can whitelist websites which he wants and Scalefusion kiosk browser will not allow the user to access any other website. The admin will also have access to Enterprise Store through which he can remotely push the Apps on the device and Update the Apps remotely without the need to manually go to each device and make installations. This reduced the downtime of the device(s). Admin can also make device groups and make changes in the Scalefusion feature and apply the new feature configuration to the whole device group rather than the individual device(s).

In case of any theft or loss of a device, administrators can remotely wipe the data on the device which helps in securing business information from falling in wrong hands. Scalefusion has Exit Passcode, which is set by the admin so that no employee can exit the Scalefusion Kiosk Mode from his device. If he tries to do so, by using wrong Exit Passcode 3 consecutive times, the device will click a picture from the front camera and the picture along with device information send an Email Notification to the administrators.

All these Scalefusion features along with other useful features ensure that the organization manages its mobile devices in an efficient, secure and cost-effective.
