Esper Architect was designed from the ground up with DevOps concepts for the most reliable, robust, granular software deployment tools available today. By leveraging DevOps’ modern software development philosophies, our powerful automations, cloud APIs, SDKs, and staged software rollouts allow you to reliably deploy product, app, and operating system updates — safely, securely, reliably, and repeatedly. Architect supports devices running Android version 5.0 and above with both GMS and AOSP builds, so you can modernize with agility.
When you have thousands or hundreds of thousands of devices, you think differently about scale. Automation, controlled rollouts, and trusted infrastructure become non-negotiable. Esper Architect has you covered.
What if we told you that your devices could provision themselves? You’d save dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of hours kitting devices, which in turn dramatically cuts costs. We’re not saying it’s magic, but it’s basically magic.
When updating devices is an all or nothing approach, you either have insecure hardware or risk breaking half your device fleet at one time. That’s why we have staged update rollouts with automated progression. When everything works, everything works.
With detailed real-time stats, advanced telemetry, drift management, and compliance enforcement, you’ll know what every device in your fleet is doing at any given moment. How’s that for peace of mind?
Devices malfunction. It’s part of life when you rely on technology, and if you don’t have an IT person onsite, it can be stressful. Say goodbye to walking a non-IT employee through troubleshooting steps or traveling across town (or the country) to debug a buggy device. With Esper’s robust remote control tools, you can do it all from the comfort of your desk. You may want to go ahead and upgrade your chair.
Whether you have tablets acting as kiosks, portable devices that move from location to location, handheld scanners, or anything in between, keeping your assets safe and secure is crucial. With our powerful geofencing feature, you can create a virtual fence to make sure your devices stay where they’re supposed to. And if they happen to grow legs and “walk off,” quick-acting automations can set off an alarm, lock the device, or both.
The thing with modern technology is that people love to play with it. And when you give them a device for a single purpose, there’s nothing they love more than trying to bypass that single purpose. Esper’s hardened and virtually unbreakable kiosk mode makes sure your devices always offer the experience you want, and that experience only. Even if they’re not kiosks. Good luck getting around that.
"To support team members and customer experiences across our POS, tablets, and other devices, we needed a solution that worked for our next generation enterprise Android apps. Using Esper Foundation for Android (x86), we were able to keep our current hardware including peripherals. Esper was a true partner. Working with them allowed us to move fast, save money, and now we can make strategic decisions about what hardware we want to use."
"Esper helped us launch our Fusion connected fitness offering on three different types of hardware in less than six months. Their full stack connected fitness Android platform helped us test our application on different hardware platforms, configure all our devices over the cloud, and manage our fleet exactly to our specifications. They gave us speed, Android expertise, and trust that our application would provide a delightful experience for our customers."
When things go wrong (as they often do), you won’t have to sweat it. With Esper’s vast remote control options, you can see what’s happening on a device’s screen in real-time, grab logcats, and even run an ADB session from pretty much anywhere.
If you’re tired of setting manual policies (or worse, having to manually enforce them), then Templates is the solution for you. Set them up once, use them for eternity. Automated, seamless, and dependable.
If a device happens to fall out of compliance (it happens to the best of us), it’s called drift. With Esper, you’ll get a notification when a device drifts, regardless of whether it’s offline, has a low battery, or a setting changes.
Test app and OS updates on a small group of devices, then roll them out slowly roll them out to the rest of your device fleet. The days of push-and-pray are over for you, friend.
Big device fleets need a dashboard that’s made to scale. With Esper’s granular device grouping, you can organize in a way that makes sense for you — by hardware, location, Android version, or anything else you can think of. Then manage your entire device fleet from a single location.
Improve and simplify security with SSO (OIDC and SAML). Set your preferred identity provider and enforce policies that align with your security posture. Roll those shoulders back. Lift that chin. Stand up straight. … And securely.
