Jamf School (formerly ZuluDesk)

Jamf School (formerly ZuluDesk) has been a great MDM solution for our school district's needs.

Pros

The price can't be beat. There is a perpetual license option that our district has used for every device we purchase.

Cons

As a district with both Jamf Pro and Jamf School (formerly ZuluDesk) deployed we do miss some of the more advanced data collection features available without custom scripting in Jamf Pro.

Reasons for Switching to Jamf School

Lower cost with perpetual device licensing options without losing too many features.

Love it!

Pros

This is a tech coordinators dream! It allows us to push out apps, control settings, update, remote reset. Basically we could become a zero touch institution. I love that we can package our apps and push them out. I also love the one time fee for the lifetime of the device instead of paying a per year fee.

Cons

There is a learning curve but once you get it, it's awesome. Would like to use it to remote into computers (remote screen sharing)

Reasons for Choosing Jamf School

Recommendation from colleagues and it does what we need it to do.

Jamf School

I really enjoy the using Jamf School to manage our school devices. It cost for perpetual licensing makes it a very affordable option for schools. Thank you!

Pros

Ease of use. I like how easy it is to set up profiles. It is also very easy to use VPP with Apple School Manager to push out apps to our devices.

Cons

packaging apps to distribute is a bit time consuming.

Reasons for Choosing Jamf School

Cost for perpetual licensing is very affordable for schools on a tight budget.

Jamf MDM Solution for iPad Management

All of my interactions with Jamf school have been extremely positive. Always very helpful with minimal wait time for support.

Pros

Once the system is initially configured, the system becomes highly scalable. It is easy to push apps and updates through the interface, which is also very intuitive. In all honesty, the software provides so many features and it is customizable at a very granular level.

Cons

The initial configuration was a bit confusing, however, the support I received was superb in getting the environment correctly configured.
