Say goodbye to VPP spreadsheets – once and for all!While FileWave still supports the previous VPP methods, existing customers who are familiar with Apple's previous VPP methods will love FileWave's integration of managed distribution. With FileWave, having to import VPP redemption codes via a spreadsheet is a thing of the past. Instead, FileWave automatically syncs with Apple's VPP license system, ensuring your database is always up-to-date.

Does your organization have an existing LDAP infrastructure? If so, FileWave’s seamless integration allows you to know which user is linked to a specific device without compromising your users’ personal information.
LDAP integration also allows you to know what apps/licenses are assigned to a specific LDAP user and, even better, have the apps automatically updated if/when the user is moved to a new LDAP group.
Tom, from the Marketing department, gets apps A, B and C assigned to his device upon enrollment. Tom then transfers to the Sales department and is moved to the Sales OU (organizational unit) in LDAP. This change automatically removes apps A, B and C and adds the Sales department specific apps X, Y and Z to his device – all without any FileWave admin or FileWave user interaction.
