Welcome to Amazing Kids
Here’s some information to help you with your IT & Devices
Welcome to Amazing Kids.
This user guide will show you how to get the best from your Amazing Kids devices and software. As a new member of our team, you will be using a mobile device such as an iPad to stay connected and productive. Mobile devices have become an essential part of our modern work environment, but managing them can be a challenging task for companies of any size.
This is where Mobile Device Management (MDM) comes into play. MDM is a set of tools and processes that allows organizations to manage and secure mobile devices used by their employees.
The MDM solution we use is called Jamf Now. It’s a cloud-based solution that enables us to configure, manage, and secure Apple devices from a central location. With Jamf Now, our IT Administrator (Tony) can manage and deploy applications, deploy security policies, and keep track of device inventory.
Only YOU can see the data that’s on your iPad, nobody else in Amazing Kids can see your data unless you share it. Our IT administrator cannot see any data on your iPad at all – and cannot track your iPad or obtain any of your personal information. The MDM is only about helping us comply with NDIS data security & privacy requirements and making sure that if you lose your iPad, that it can be reset so that no client data is exposed.
As a new member of our organization, you will be given an iPad that is preconfigured with Jamf Now. This means that you can be assured that your device is set up with the necessary security policies and applications to ensure a secure and productive work environment.
In summary, Mobile Device Management is essential for modern workplaces, and Jamf Now is our chosen solution to ensure that our mobile devices are managed and secured effectively.
I hope that you find your experience using your mobile device in our organization to be smooth and productive. If you have any questions, please call Tony on 0425 720 444 or email at email@example.com.
If you lose your Amazing Kids iPad please call Tony on 0425710444 so we can lock it.
