Field Services: Managing iOS Devices In The Field

Posted by Charles Edge on October 15th, 2014

Your Bushel can serve a wide range of industries and sizes of organizations, including field services. If you have 10, 50 or 1,000 devices that need managing, Bushel can be tailored to fit the needs of many. A common setup for a field services operation includes the following attributes:

  • Each device has an identical configuration when shipped
  • Each device has each app that aids in servicing equipment of some kind
  • Each device needs a passcode to protect the data in case the field service rep loses the device
  • Field service reps may or may not need email configured on devices

Luckily, Bushel supports such a configuration, even at the largest of field services scales. We can install every app purchased with a VPP account on every device on enrollment, enforce necessary pin codes and encryption, set up email and keep a sleek, streamlined deployment methodology. This allows organizations to quickly ship devices directly to field service reps from Apple, reducing time required to warehouse devices, have devices configured by vendors and even custom tailor each device to each field service user.

This simple approach allows non-technical field services managers, dispatchers and other employees the flexibility to quickly choose new apps to deploy to engineers and service representatives, thus working quickly to get the necessary tools to your staff. And given the simplicity of our tools, if someone happens to lose one of those devices, it’s quick and easy to have a new one shipped out and wipe the old device. This keeps your workforce out in the field and productive. If you’re in the field services industry, check out Bushel to see if we’re a great match!
