Scalefusion has now eased the device enrollment mechanism with Bulk Enrollment feature. It is possible now for the customers to enroll 500, 1000, 2000 and even more than that number of devices with Scalefusion in a single go.
We understand that it is cumbersome to enroll one device at a time and what you need is a one-time registration process. In that accordance, we added this feature! With this feature, any number of devices can be enrolled saving time, efforts and minimal chances of human errors in a single go, without much help from the IT team.
Bulk enrollment makes the deployment extremely easy, fast and error-free. So, no worries even when the number of devices are in tons!
Till date, in order to enrol a device in Scalefusion Dashboard, you had to enter the License key or Sign-In credentials and selected the Profile or Group. It is indeed a simple and secure process but it poses a challenge when the number of devices to be enrolled are high, as this process has to be done for each and every device.
The steps followed to date –
With the feature of Mass Deployment, a number of steps for enrolling can be eliminated and high volume of devices can be enrolled at a time, making it less tedious.
Scalefusion now provides two approaches, to enroll devices onto the dashboard, with minimal IT specialist’s help.
These approaches can be used in combination with making Scalefusion as a pre-loaded app on devices described here –
Pre-Registration of Devices –
This approach is very simple when you (Admin) have an inventory of all the devices with IMEI or serial numbers in CSV format. The only thing that has to be done is to upload this CSV file to the dashboard, specifying the profile or the group (if you wish to as it is optional). This process automates and pre-registers all the devices in the list.
Now for each end-user, it becomes extremely easy as it has to simply download the Scalefusion APK from Play store and install it on the device. After that the user has to click on Auto-Login which will auto-register them, taking directly to the permissions step. Thus it avoids entering the license key, credentials, device name and profile or group profile and automates the process.
Configuration files –
This approach is best for clients who are looking forward to having their own branded devices explicitly for their use by integrating with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
The other clients for whom config file approach works best are who customize the Android OS and install it back on their owned devices i.e. custom ROM.
These two types of clients can have pre-installed Scalefusion app and Config file as well on their devices which enables their devices to enrol in one click.
Admin creates the Config file on the dashboard. The config file is copied at a specific location in each device and the device user has to just click Auto-Login and it directly takes to permissions.
Enrolling through Config file eliminates human errors, simplifies and automates the enrollment process making it faster.
Both the approaches offered by Scalefusion Enterprise Mobile Device Management for Bulk Enrollment are highly customer-centric. We have introduced this feature keeping in mind the ease and flexibility for our existing as well as new customers’ requirements.
