Our software orchestrates and enhances your mobility systems and hardware

GroundControl enables your mobile services — MDM, Wi-Fi controllers, apps, and caching servers — to work together in ways you only dreamed possible. We directly configure Apple mobile devices through USB, and indirectly manage your mobile infrastructure through third-party APIs. 

Enhance Your MDM

GroundControl integrates with nearly every MDM provider, for both DEP and non-DEP devices. The following MDM providers go the extra mile, and provide deep API integration between their systems and GroundControl.

Smart USB Hubs & Docks

GroundControl works with a number of enterprise-class USB hubs, docks and cabinets from third-party vendors. Some units have been customized to enable additional GroundControl integration, such as status LEDs, integrated proximity badge readers, and physical security enclosures.

Active Directory

GroundControl can federate with your directory system, using SAML 2.0. Access to the cloud management console and the local Launchpad app can be automatic, secure, and password-free. Federated login gives you maximum control over password complexity, expiration and authorization.

APIs, Webhooks, and Data Export

GroundControl is open and accessible by design. There’s a lot of data available to you: devices, activities, Launchpads, check-outs and check-ins — just to name a few. Choose the best method for retrieving the data too: Export to CSV, pull using our REST API, or push using flexible Webhooks

  • A hospital in Santa Clara uses webhooks to bypass a WiFi capture page, sending the iPad MAC address to the Aruba controller.
  • An airline uses our API to fetch the history of which flight attendant takes which shared iPhone. This data is stored in the airline’s asset management system.
  • A retail chain uses lookups to set the iPad timezone and DEP username based on the store ID number.
  • A hospital fetches battery health data from GroundControl, to know proactively when it’s time to replace a phone.
