Cisco Meraki Systems Manager (MDM+EMM) Valuable Features

TonyMoore - PeerSpot reviewer

I have found the location analytics feature that is built into the APs to be the most valuable. It allows you to compare data and to single out individuals who are repeatedly coming into your store. We can observe different trends. This is what separates it from a lot of the other solutions. 

You can have a passcode policy to restrict access and can enable device restrictions and stop people from being able to use cameras. You can allow screen capture, automatic sync when roaming, and the use of a virtual assistant, or you can actually shut all these things down as well.

The ability to push out applications is a great aspect of the solution.

We can create a tag of a phone and we can create a package of applications, and then we can tag the device and say, "This device must have these applications." The solution ensures that the device gets those applications.

We also like that it allows us to get applications without setting up iCloud accounts. For some of our employees, the extra steps to have "yet another account" are simply not needed, when all they want the is the app store (and not all of the other iCloud functionality).

For example, a delivery driver - we want him to have Google Maps, Outlook, Chrome, and a Time Clock app.  We can push these apps out through Meraki MDM without having to set him up with an iCloud account.

The analysis of traffic and configuration capabilities are the most valuable aspects for us.

The solution is straightforward to set up. 

The solution seems to be scalable.

It's very stable and reliable. 

So far, it's been very clean and easy to use. We can find proper settings and information easily even though we are rather new to the product.

The most valuable features of Cisco Meraki Systems Manager (MDM+EMM) are its ability to do geofencing for devices, manage thousands of devices with only a push of a button, and quick application deployment in seconds. It's amazing. For example, in an education scenario, you can deploy an application update for thousands of iPads in two clicks.

The maintenance of the solution is done by setting up the schedule for updates. You select if you want the updates to automatically deploy updates for the firmware, and it automatically does it. It can manage the downtime for the devices, it doesn't bring everything down at the same time. It does the updates device by device, not everything at once. This process minimizes downtime.

I've never had an issue updating something with Cisco Meraki Systems Manager (MDM+EMM).
