TabPilot Tablet Manager is a combination mobile device management (MDM) and classroom management system for Android and iOS. Tablet Manager was designed from the ground up as a school-specific solution, managed entirely through a cloud-based interface.

MDM features include integration with Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP), app distribution through Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP), device security, and inventory management.

Classroom management features include the ability for teachers to freeze student screens or lock students into a single app or website. Features will be expanded throughout the course of the Early Experience program.
