Checkout is an optional add-on of GroundControl’s “Pro” tier. This feature allows organizations to keep a record each time a user takes a shared device, improving accountability and allowing unique device personalization.
While idle, GroundControl locks down devices in software using Apple’s robust “single app mode” to deter theft. GroundControl can update apps and system software while devices are charging, to maintain a patched and compliant computing environment.
Checkout takes less than 5 seconds. Employees tap their existing RFID-enabled employee ID badge to the attached badge reader. After GroundControl checks authorizations, it identifies the attached device with the greatest battery charge, and performs a software unlock to reveal the pre-configured apps.
