Why Choose Moki?

Simply put, Moki does what MDM can’t.

Unlike traditional MDM, Moki is built to enable and control tablet-based commerce devices for the enterprise to take advantage of modern and ever-evolving mobile technology. We make devices meet the needs of the enterprise to drive commerce, not the other way around.

What exactly does Moki give you that you can’t get from MDM?

HARDENED DEVICES

MDM
Traditional MDM tools are built to empower individual device owners instead of enterprises. They focus on maintaining the general-purpose nature of tablet-based technology (think iPad), rather than providing devices that are purpose-built for commerce.

MOKI
Moki takes general-purpose devices and turns them into hardened, single-purpose solutions that stay single-purpose (think payment terminal). By creating a single-purpose device, Moki can determine which apps – and what aspects of those apps – are available to users. These devices can then be tied to integrated peripherals, such as barcode and credit card readers and printers.

FLEET FRIENDLY

MDM
Traditional MDM tools are intended to help on-board and off-board people more than devices. This usually means they can’t deploy more than a few devices at a time. They weren’t built to take thousands of Android tablets and turn them into hardened, commerce-specific devices. With MDM, you have a lot of work to get hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of tablets to “become” the devices you need.

MOKI
Moki has built reliable partnerships with leading device manufacturers to make it simple to take any quantity of devices and provision them with the right applications, peripheral support, device settings and more. And in most cases this is a touch-less procedure.

DEVICE AND APP HEALTH

MDM
What happens when you want to see device usage and app event data, such as your device losing connectivity or an app crash? Typically you’ll push that data into some sort of threat analytics platform, such as Splunk®, right? But if you’re using a traditional MDM you simply cannot do this with device data. Traditional MDM has no way of capturing and reporting this data. It forces you to depend on someone to monitor the health of your devices. With MDM, you don’t know your devices are broken until someone tells you they’re broken.

MOKI
Unlike MDM, Moki gives you full stack visibility. When we say “full stack” we are talking about the device and connections, the peripherals, and the applications. There’s nothing hidden. With Moki, you can see it all: device and peripherals. You decide how you want to view your device and app data, and we can present it however you want it presented.

DEVICE AND APP SECURITY

MDM
In a tablet-based commerce deployment, you need to be able to see potential dangers at the app, peripheral and device levels. Traditional MDM doesn’t do any of this. MDM begins and stops with the security that comes on devices when they’re taken out of the box.

MOKI
Moki gives you full stack visibility into your apps, peripherals and devices. This means we can make you aware of potential dangers anywhere in the stack. Our platform gives you the flexibility to determine what is dangerous and what needs to be reported on.

USERS NOT REQUIRED

MDM
If you have people at each of your devices, updates with traditional MDM are easy. You just make changes to your fleet and they accept those changes. But in tablet-based commerce, chances are you don’t have someone at every device and you need a way to implement changes without them. Traditional MDM by itself cannot update at scale without people.

MOKI
With Moki, you can do everything you need to do to your devices, short of physically turning them on and off, without actually needing someone at the device. You’ll never need someone to push the update button on all your devices or hope that a customer is kind enough to do it for you.

SCHEDULED EVENTS AND ACTIONS

MDM
MDM doesn’t let you schedule updates or content changes. With MDM, once you push something, it is entirely up to someone at the device when to implement that change. They can choose to wait until it’s convenient for them or not initiate it at all. With tablet-based commerce, you don’t want someone else to make decisions about the devices you’ve invested in. Updates need to happen when you need them to happen, whether it’s at 2 am so it doesn’t disrupt your business or if you need to push a critical update immediately.

MOKI
Moki isn’t traditional. We can schedule updates and content changes, regardless of whether they are app, device or OS updates or require a device restart, at any time. If you have devices that span different time zones, you can use Moki to schedule any actions when you need them to happen. Because, after all, you need your devices up and running and properly updated so you can get the best use out of them (making you money).

OS UPDATES AND MIGRATIONS

MDM
If you’re devices are iOS or consumer-grade Android, they’ll likely handle OS updates themselves. However, many commercial-grade implementations of Android do not support native OS updates. MDM relies on the devices to push through OS updates, and may not work for commercial-grade implementations.

MOKI
Moki gives you the ability to update iOS and most Android OS, including commercial-grade implementations. You’ll be able to use commercial-grade Android on most tablet-based devices that are purpose-built for commerce, and Moki can help you identify when those devices need to be updated and then schedule and push those updates.

PROVEN ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS

MDM
If you have multiple tablet-based devices, in several locations, traditional MDM will be nothing more than a patchwork solution – especially if your devices are specifically for commercial use. Traditional MDM tools simply are not built to handle large-scale, tablet-based commerce deployments.

MOKI
Moki has a proven system and the expertise to get your devices deployed the way you need them, regardless of the deployment size. We have helped hundreds of customers in many industries successfully use tens of thousands of tablet-based devices. And in many situations our experts are able to get your devices up and running in as little as a day. Moki is built from the ground up to help you deploy, monitor and manage tablet-based commerce devices at any scale. Moki’s business is making sure you do your business better.

TRUE REMOTE CONTROL

MDM
Traditional MDM solutions were built to have someone in front of a device, which means there are two reasons they don’t want the ability to control devices remote. First, there’s someone at the end of the device to do work for them. Second, traditional MDM acts like whoever is using the device probably doesn’t want anyone remotely controlling. Basically, MDM acts like these devices are still personal devices.

MOKI
Moki was built for tablet-based commerce. We knew we couldn’t always count on someone at the device to poke around and diagnose problems so we built the best remote control possible on iOS and Android, giving you the ability to take control of a device from anywhere you have an Internet connection.

BORN IN THE CLOUD

MDM
Sure, everything is in the cloud, and most MDM isn’t an exception. But most traditional MDM solutions weren’t born in the cloud, and they still require some on-premise technology to reach their full potential.

MOKI
Moki was born in the cloud, and this makes a difference. With Moki, tablet-based commerce happens faster, with less effort and can scale to, well, the size of the internet.
