Getac OEMConfig: Enhanced Android Batch Configuration for EMM Systems

Rugged tablets are increasingly becoming the standard for mobile frontline employees, with Android devices representing the best value for the money. However, when organizations issue a device as standard equipment, it is important to optimize settings and configurations. This leads to maximized productivity and security, and first-time-right efficiency.

Enterprise-scale configuration of mobile devices is normally achieved using an enterprise mobility management (EMM) system. On the other hand, most EMM systems currently in use, even if they meet Android Enterprise Recommended (AER) requirements, enable batch configuration of only a modest number of Android device settings. Many other settings are omitted, thereby creating a device-by-device headache in many instances and a barrier to overall Android adoption.

To eliminate this challenge, businesses need something more, something that enhances Android batch configuration capabilities without requiring changing EMM systems or adding a second one. This is where OEMConfig for Getac Android devices comes into play.

What is OEMConfig?

OEMConfig is a Getac-proprietary application and is available on the Managed Google Play Store. It unlocks the full potential of Getac Android device deployment by enhancing the enterprise-scale configuration capabilities of AER-certified EMM system. This helps to maximize the usefulness of both EMM and Getac Android devices, tightens device security, and minimizes repetitive configuration work.

Here’s how the software works:

  • Install Getac OEMConfig where the EMM system is hosted
  • Carry out centralized configuration of Android hardware and software settings as needed
  • Send out over the air (OTA) via EMM Cloud to all applicable Getac Android devices
