Esper Foundation for Android is a customized version of the Android operating system designed specifically for creating custom experiences. It’s based on AOSP (the Android Open Source Project) and is made for all your devices, regardless of form factor. Mobile, stationary, wearable, embedded, in-vehicle, and even headless devices can use Foundation to unlock previously inaccessible innovations by removing the limitations found in off-the-shelf Android devices.
Full control allows you to completely customize the device lifecycle from deployment to user experience, while sophisticated over-the-air updateability ensures your devices are always up-to-date with the latest features and security patches. What that means for you is a device experience as you’ve never imagined — for you, your IT team, and your users.
If you’ve ever asked yourself “why can’t I…” when trying to build your ideal customer experience or make your hardware work in a specific way, Foundation is the answer. It lifts the roadblocks of off-the-shelf software and helps you fully realize your vision.
Maybe you’re building a device fleet from scratch. More likely, you already have dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of devices. Either way, Foundation is the solution to your quandary — whether you’re looking to build a custom set of ARM devices or repurpose some outdated x86 hardware (or both!) Foundation can turn your dreams into realities.
"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."
"Traditional MDMs are only built for employee device use, but we also needed a solution for the devices we’re sending to our customers — for the devices they depend on to operate their businesses every single day. Esper’s Android expertise is a game-changer. Because that expertise is at their core, they can truly provide us with a technology partnership."
