Android Enterprise (Android for Work ) setup with Scalefusion EMM

Android Enterprise or formerly Android for Work is a Google-led initiative to bring the best of Android management features to enterprise using Android Enterprise devices.

Android Enterprise was earlier called as Android for Work and hence you would see the words Android Enterprise and Android for Work used interchangeably. Also sometimes it is abbreviated as AE or AfW or AFW.

With Android Enterprise setup, you can access all the advanced management EMM features that Scalefusion offers both on Company Owned devices and Employee Owned devices. Some of the features of using Android Enterprise setup are,

  • A simple OOB Experience. Install Scalefusion right when you are unboxing your device.
  • Silent Install/Uninstall on devices with Android OS greater than 6.0, irrespective of the make/model of device.
  • Search And Publish applications from Google Play Store on your AfW managed devices.
  • Configure per-app Restrictions/Permissions from dashboard.
  • Enforce password policies on your devices.
  • Use Android Zero-touch Enrollment

Before we start accessing all Android Enterprise features for your devices, we need to bind your organisation with Scalefusion. For this purpose you would need a Gmail Id. We recommend using a separate corporate Gmail account for Android Enterprise setup.

Before You Begin

  1. Sign In to Scalefusion Dashboard
  2. You will need one Gmail id (a non GSuite). We suggest creating a new Gmail id/account for setting up Android Enterprise(Android for Work).
Note: GSuite account based Android Enterprise setup is currently not supported by Scalefusion.
