iPhone version monitoring

Hi guys,

I am trying to find the best monitoring software for iPhone at work.  We are experiencing a problem with the current software for version monitoring. Currently it shows us only the first three numbers of the version but not more. What is an answer to this and how can we see if all employees are on the latest version of the iOS on their iPhones? What software do you use and how do you configure this issue?

Thank you very much all!

Look at Meraki.com for a possible service, that is what we use.

Does it show the full iOS versioning for iPhones or it cuts the numbers at the end of the versioning? That is our biggest problem.

Not sure what you are referring to exactly.  here is a portion of the Dashboard showing the OS for my iPhone 4s:

And this is the full version number right? If there is a third digit on the version would it show it?

Looking on my iPhone in General About it says 7.1 (11D167), is that what you are asking about?
Meraki dashboard does not show that.  There are several MDM commands available though:

Yes - that was what I was referring to  and sometimes the versioning is 7.1.1 so that third digit in the versioning is not showing up on our software and I've wondered if Meraki shows it. The issues comes up with the third number being added on the version number. 7.1 currently is the two digit but if it comes up to third digit it hides it for us.
