We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The full API lets us write custom scripts and apps to enhance even further the end-user experience."
"The features that have been the most life-saving for us are pre-stage enrollments and self-service."
"Policies are a great feature that allows us to push certain restrictions to devices that require them, such as the younger generation of students we have."
"The design of the GUI, as compared to other solutions, really makes a difference."
"The Self Service feature, which allows us to make apps available to our staff and students was essential."
"The time that we save in hours for new deployments, redeployments, application upgrades and OS upgrades more than makes up for the cost of the product."
"The most valuable features are the restrictions, Lost Mode, Self Service, and full implementation of anything Apple will let MDM manage."
"The Smart Groups have been very beneficial for quick reporting when a critical, out of cycle patch is required."
"The management and enrollment process is great, and with the asset management and instant action menu, we can easily maintain and support the users."
"In terms of valuable features, we liked the lock feature, the roll-out white feature, and the find feature. I think that Sophos had a GPS locator, so you could figure out where the phone was from a GPS location."
"They always add more features to this product."
"A more modern UI in the next release will make the product absolutely perfect."
"The ability to ask a device to run a policy regularly would be a real advantage."
"An in-house chat room would be a great way to communicate with your team when you aren't physically present with them."
"I would love to see an integrated ticketing system built-in, better reporting templates to help analyze the data (software usage, etc.), and integration with FREE SSL Cert (letsencrypt.org) with auto-renewal."
"I would like to be able to see what policies and configuration profiles are tied to what Smart/Static groups."
"Jamf doesn't make the Cloud file system visible so there are rare occasions where the local repository and Cloud repository get out of sync."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"I can only say that I would love to see a more customizable dashboard."
"We would like to see graphics showing the use of each device."
"In terms of what could be improved, the initial configuration and setup of the environment could probably be made a little bit easier. There are so many pieces that go into it. Intune is absolutely insane and Sophos is better, but it still is a bit complex to get it all set up correctly."
"It could be more secure."
"The total ROI is worth every penny."
"The setup is pricey upfront for support and setup."
"Setup and licensing prices are getting to be too high."
"The cost of Jamf is certainly worth the investment."
"I know that as a school we get a discounted price, which is good because without it we would not be able to afford it."
"Don’t go into a sales call without knowing all the details of your system because Jamf has a ton of tools outside of Jamf Pro to offer and knowing them ahead of time is a must."
"JumpStart is available at an additional cost."
"This is a pricey solution."
"The licensing is paid on a yearly basis."
