Rollout and configuration
Threema Work can be easily distributed, either with or without an MDM system.
Distribution of the app without an MDM system could hardly be simpler: Each user receives a login from the administrator. The users are prompted to enter this login when launching the app for the first time. The administrator can generate and distribute the logins using the management cockpit.
Threema Work is very well suited for distribution via MDM system. Threema Work supports Android for Work (Android ≥ 5.0) and Managed App Configuration (iOS ≥ 8.0). The MDM systems Threema Work is compatible with include:
The advantage of using an MDM system is that this allows remote configuration of the app. This way, end users are relieved from setting up the app manually, and the organization can verify that the setup was performed correctly.
