How should we deploy the Beehivr platform to a small number of iPad kiosks?
For a small number of iPads, once the platform is downloaded from the App Store,each tablet can be placed in Guided Access through the iPad settings. The Guided Access mode limits your device to a single app and lets you control which app features are available.
What does the acronym Single App Mode (SAM) mean?
Particularly useful for kiosks, the SAM setting is managed through an MDM and allows to retain control over the iPad and prevent accessing other iPad applications or functions.

How should we deploy the Beehivr platform to a large number of iPad kiosks?
To manage deployments across multiple sites, we strongly recommend that you use an MDM (Mobile Device Management) software. An MDM allows IT administrators to manage and troubleshoot mobile devices remotely. An MDM typically allows remote distribution and monitoring of iPad applications, data and configuration settings, updates, patches, and locking. Provided by a third-party, an MDM software will command the app download directly from the App Store.
