Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The ability to send an iPad out to someone and have them auto-provision it when they are out in the field is fantastic. We don't have to have it all configured before we ship it. This is probably the biggest value add.""One valuable feature is the ability to provide a secure environment. Another is the kiosk mode where MaaS360 can be used over a tablet or mobile device to ensure that a single application is used.""The most valuable feature is the fact that we can find a lost device or shut the device down and wipe it is good for HIPAA.""Maas360 uses distribution groups to deploy apps, which makes it a bit easier than, for example, Intune.""Using this solution has made things more convenient. Earlier, we had to depend a lot more on IT to find and resolve our issues.""Remote enablement feature and access to internal resources on the VPN.""All features that we have deployed are useful. We do access office emails on our smartphones, and we have complete sync with Active Directory. Our calendar also gets synced in the MaaS360 application. We also ensure that the data from these official applications is not being misused by any of the employees. We have disabled cut, copy, paste, and all such features. It ensures that all the official data that our employees have on their smartphones is secure. Security is the paramount feature that we value in this product.""We've found the scalability to be very good."

Cons
"The solution needs to offer live technical support. Right now, it's just a chat window and it's rather unhelpful.""When we have MaaS360 installed on smartphones, it consumes the battery of the device at a much faster pace. This is one of the areas of improvement that I would like to highlight. We have also observed that in the contact list, a lot of duplication is happening. A single contact is duplicated three or four times, which also consumes more memory resources. If they can work on improving it for these aspects, it will have a more positive impact not only on the way the application is being consumed by the user but also on user satisfaction. A lot of new features are being deployed or rolled out by companies that are competitors of IBM MaaS360. IBM will have to ensure that all those features are on board so that we have a complete suite of features in the platform, rather than deploying multiple diverse solutions to cater to the requirements of our customers.""The user experience really isn't so good.""The price could be lower.""User interface is basic and not very intuitive.""The user interface could definitely use some improvement.""The look needs to be updated and it could be simpler to use.""Local technical support would be helpful."

More IBM MaaS360 Cons »

"The interface is complicated and not very easy to use."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Price is something for which we are always under pressure. If we have to look at the MaaS deployment, the price definitely has to come down. This is clearly one of the areas that we will have to work on, not only as a provider to our customers but also as a consumer of this service.""I feel the pricing to be very high.""Fees are monthly and it's approximately $8 per user.""MaaS360 is priced at a balance. It is not as expensive as AirWatch or Jamf and is not a cheap solution like a few of the local products."
