Elo OEMConfig Configurations

OEMConfig is an Android Enterprise standard that enables OEMs to make new features and configurations immediately available to customers. Available on the Google Play store, the Elo OEMConfig app provides a single interface for Android Enterprise Certified EMM and MDM tools to enable customers to manage updates and configuration changes to Elo Android devices after they are deployed in the field.

  • A UEM or EMM system that supports OEMConfig compliant admin tools.
