Apple provide their own MDM tools

Alternatively there are quite a number of 3rd party tools such as AirWatch, MaaS360, Centrify, Meraki and many more.

The best option will depend on your wishlist of features.

For example if you have a Mac computer or Windows-only environment at base to manage the devices?
Do you want to allow users to have a mix of personal apps and business apps or do you want complete-lockdown of the devices etc. etc.

It is clearly easier if you can get them back to base at least once to setup & configure each iPad but if this all has to be done remotely then only a few MDM systems (such as Maas360) can be installed as apps by the user remotely and can perform remote configuration tasks.
