How to Fit AirDroid Business Into My Business Model?

With all six remote control features and three add-on features provided by AirDroid Business, how can you make the best out of it? Below are three examples of how you can maximize the full potential of AirDroid Business and greatly improve your productivity and save more time!

1. Hospitals: Remote Control + Kiosk Mode

Scenario: Evergreen Nursing Home sets up various self-service kiosks in all their shared spaces, such as reception and entertainment room. And they even distribute Android tablets to each patient to keep track of their health status. When Julie comes in for an appointment to visit her grandpa, there is already a long line waiting at the reception, what can she do? 

Solution: Julie uses the self-service kiosk to sign in and enter her personal information to verify her identity. This is one way to use Kiosk Mode in AirDroid Business. In order to make sure visitors don’t tamper with the settings deployed at public places, Evergreen Nursing Home can lock their unattended devices and make sure visitors can only access certain information for security concerns. In addition, doctors can remote monitor every patient’s status through each distributed device and provide instant support when needed. 

With the growing necessity for elderly care, many nursing homes are now implementing mobile device management solutions to better monitor and control their patients’ welfare. Hospitals are also integrating kiosks with telecommunication to make room for more critical cases and changing the way people receive medical care.

Scenario: Hotel California introduces digital display boards in their lobby and reception area. They use digital signage to showcase their hotels, special offers and events. They even created their own hotel booking app to engage more with their customers. Now, if today they decided to update their in-house apps and apply these changes in every digital signage they’ve deployed across the whole country, how can they accomplish this? 

Solution: They simply sign in to AirDroid Business, go to Application Management Service, select the devices in which their in-house apps are installed, click update, and that’s it! 

Hotels are only one of the industries implementing digital signage. Others include: Airlines and Airports, Casinos, Restaurants, Healthcare, Education, Banking, and more. For businesses using digital signage, one crucial concern is to be able to update apps on their unattended devices deployed out in the field faster and easier. With basic remote control and AMS, businesses can easily keep track of their devices’ status, locations and perform necessary updates in a less costly way.

3. IT Business: Remote Control + Kiosk + AMS

IT remote access and support

Scenario: FutureTech Inc. is an IT company that offers software services to SafeAlways Insurance, an international company spread across Asia and Europe. SafeAlways distributes Android tablets to their sales so they can showcase their products to their customers and close deals more efficiently. FutureTech published a new version of an app installed in SafeAlways’ Android tablets after receiving a troubleshoot report last night. And now IT support agents want to apply new changes onto all the unmanned devices, how can this be done? 

Solution: An IT professional at FutureTech navigates to Application Management Service in AirDroid Business, he then goes to App Library, selects the App and devices he wants to update and completes all the updates for all unattended devices from SafeAlways right away.   

An IT software company usually serves customers of different industries and requires IT professionals to provide support when necessary, especially when technical issues need to be resolved immediately. With AMS, app updates can be done overnight to minimize time and cost for daily operations.
