Apple School Manager (ASM)
Whether you have 10 Apple devices or 10,000, it’s easy to deploy and manage them with Apple Business Manager. It works seamlessly with mobile device management solutions, so you can set up Mac, iPad, iPhone and Apple TV over the air — without any need for manual configuration.
Apple School Manager (ASM) is a simple, web-based portal for IT administrators that provides a fast, streamlined way for you to deploy Apple devices that your organisation has purchased directly from Apple or from a participating Apple Authorised Reseller or carrier. You can automatically enrol devices in your Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution without having to physically touch or prepare the devices before users get them.
Apple School Manager is a central element of modern device deployment for education institutions whether you are using one-to-one or shared-device deployments.
Combined with an effective MDM solution, you can simplify the setup process for users, configure device settings and distribute apps and books you purchase in Apple School Manager.
So that you can quickly create accounts with school rosters and classes, Apple School Manager also integrates with your existing environment. You can integrate with some Student Management Systems (SMSs) directly or using batch processes that we can manage for you. You can also integrate with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) using federated authentication or using System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM), enabling students and teachers to sign in to Apple services with their existing Azure AD credentials. We are able to do most of these functions with Google as an identity source too.
Get apps and books in bulk
You can purchase world-class apps and engaging interactive books in volume, and equip your entire school with innovation. Through ASM, you can buy apps for both macOS and iOS as well as books from the iBooks Store. You can also get custom-made apps that are built uniquely for you by third-party developers and procured privately through ASM, so your school gets exactly what it needs.
