Pros: JamfNow has a intuitive, easy to navigate interface. It is relatively easy to find the functions I need, and it was easy to find resources online for things I couldn't figure out on my own.

Our business has the need to manage multiple iPads, which are used in the field. JamfNow gives us the security we need with company assets on potentially stolen property.

As far as I am aware it is the best software available for mobile device management becuase it is specifically designed to communicate with the core Apple operating system.

Cons: Absolute pain in the neck to set up. Quite a few calls into Apple Enterprise support, and the first iPad I tried to add to MDM got locked and had to be taken to the local Apple shop to be reset. However, once you set up the backend, adding new devices is easy. I was able to walk someone through the steps of adding an iPad to our company JamfNow over the phone.

Been using Jamf|Now for more than a year (~75 devices)

Pros: Highlights: Clean UI, easy to use, good price, and great customer support.

Employees also like it because it doesn't feel too "big brother" compared to other products. Also, client software is necessary to install or run.

Cons: Missing some important (to us) features, but they're working on them. Our wishes include better notifications, a generic notes field, and the ability to configure the conditions under which a device is flagged as needing attention.

Overall: Automated security policy enforcement. Applications management via the VPP. Basic inventorying.

Pros: Jamf is very cost effective and extremely easy to roll out. Deployment of solution only took us half a day. The product has been a life saver and given us control over our Mac environment.

Cons: There have absolutely no issues with Jamf. I have used the solution at several different organizations and the product has been seamless to implement and issue free.

Pros: Very easy to use and implement. Keeps track of all of our mac products with ease. I can lock and wipe devices remotely if they are stolen. So easy to install and set up security features. We used mac os server before for device management but this is so much easy to manage. We don't have to worry about it going down. If the internet is up, everyone can work on their device.

Cons: I wish we could change passwords for individual accounts on devices but I realize this is hard with just as simple device manager. Also I wouldn't have to change the password for the admin account on devices every 3 months (company requirement) by logging into the device. I would love just to do this through my jamf account.

Overall: Very good. So easy to implement and it has always worked. I would recommend this software to anyone who needs to manage apple devices for a low cost

Finally, easier to use!

Pros: Latest UI is soooo much easier to understand and error reporting is actually informative - keeps getting better with every revision.

Excellent tech support.

Ability to push apps to individual devices and groups remotely is fantastic

Cons: In earlier versions, the UI was very confusing and difficult to understand. It assumed instant expertise. It was enough to make me jump ship.

Still dependent on working with Apple School Manager separately

Many similar functions are in different locations (no grouped) in app.

Overall: Significantly eases Apple device management.

Jamf is an awesome product.

Pros: I like the interface and also the support is great.

Cons: Sometimes app deployment from the App store is slow, or will come back with an error.

Overall: I use Jamf Now to manage about 80 Macs. We love it for deploying App Store apps. I also like how I can require Filevault 2 which would otherwise be very difficult to enforce. We have also had computers stolen from our office before, so it's great to have the feature where we can remotely wipe them. And, whenever I have a question they are very responsive on the chat support.

Pros: Love being able to use JAMF Nation and JAMF now to resolve many computer management issues that our company handles.

Cons: Took me time, and I'm still learning all the tricks of the software. There are many ways to do the same thing, which can be confusing to learn.

Super Easy, and inexpensive too!!

Pros: It is an inexpensive and easy way to manage your devices. Has enough configuration items available but isn't cluttered either. Quite intuitive.

Cons: Need a few more features, like home screen customization and removal of "factory installed" apps.

Jamf Now is easy to use and our account manager has been extremely helpful for us.

Pros: The software easily allows us to manage our technician's iPads. We are able to easily push apps, update software, and track our equipment.

Cons: For our purposes, the only negative aspect that I have encountered is that it does not provide the option to automatically remove some of the default apps that Apple includes with the iPad. Not being able to automatically delete TV, Home Kit, Tips, etc. still means that we have to touch each device. I wouldn't have anything to complain about if this was added.

Overall: Inexpensive and easy to use device management.

Pros: We have a sales team that uses iPads for contract signing, etc. There are a few different apps that the team utilizes and before each team member would purchase the apps directly from the device using their own apple id and getting reimbursed, resulting in us losing the license for the software if that member left. We discovered JAMF and the VPP store and now can assign licenses to the device with NO apple id needed. We keep the license and don't have to continue buying the same software over and over again.

Cons: It can be a little slow on the updating/pushing content to devices...but it's really not that bad.
