Mobile Device Manager Integration

    You can integrate Mobile Device Manager Plus and exercise control over the mobile devices of users, either corporate owned or personal devices (BYOD). This integration helps you recover lost mobile devices while securing their data and also enables automatic updates from Mobile Device Manager Plus to ServiceDesk Plus.

    Benefits:   

    1. Secure lost devices by performing actions such as tracking device, activating an alarm, remotely locking device, clearing passcode, wiping data, and prompt a contact number.

    2. Access complete Mobile Device Manager Plus functionalities to monitor, manage, and safeguard mobile devices and their data, easily and more effectively, by using the IFrame inside ServiceDesk Plus.

    3. With the integration enabled, any mobile device added to Mobile Device Manager Plus will be automatically added to ServiceDesk Plus. This allows technicians to view assets from a single location.

    Mobile device allocation to users will be copied in ServiceDesk Plus as and when you update them in Mobile Device Manager Plus, provided the users are imported from Active Directory in both applications.
