What is AirDroid Business?

AirDroid Business is an all-in-one Android Mobile Device Management (MDM) Solution that focuses heavily on remote Android device management.

Introducing Admin Console

Admin Console is a cloud-based dashboard that allows IT managers or business owners to remotely access, control, and monitor their Android devices’ real-time performances. After downloading Biz Daemon, the android device management app onto the device that needs to be controlled, users will be able to view all the enrolled devices from monitoring templates and perform different remote device management tasks.

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?

Hotels are only one of the industries implementing digital signage. Others include: Airlines and Airports, Casinos, Restaurants, Healthcare, Education, Banking, and more.

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.

Solution: IT manager at Evergreen Logistics use Kiosk Mode to lockdown applications on their Android tablets. Drivers are only allowed to use company-owned apps at work. Additionally, they block websites such as YouTube and Facebook on the tablets so drivers won’t be able to access these pages and waste unnecessary data cost. In order to make sure your device end users don’t tamper with the settings, activate Kiosk Mode on all of your Android devices and limit your system settings so even your employee with zero IT background won’t have any trouble using the device at work.
