Hello,

We, like many companies are getting more and more ipads in our company.  For instance, one group just ordered ten of them for their area.  They plan on having similar apps installed and of course we need to consider security. (these need to be VERY secure)
Obviously we don't want to have a ton of iTunes accounts to mess with and "fund" each one separately.

I will be stuck managing these, and don't know where to start!!!
This group will eventually have a bunch of these, and I will be stuck managing them all...please help!!

Also if anyone knows of reasonable cases for these (waterproof/dirt/etc) let me know....of course we have seen the "lifeproof" one...anybody have good results with that one or others?

thanks!

You will want to use a Mac, preferably 10.8.4 with Server App installed. From there you can use Apple Configurator App to prepare, supervise and assign devices.

Using the Volume Purchase Program for Business to purchase apps you can then send out redemption codes for users to download prepaid apps from the App store.
