Using Packages

Packages are the delivery method for installing applications, scripts, or files on your devices. Packages are created in Package Studio, a free, standalone application developed by SOTI. Package Studio creates a package that contains the files that you want to install as well as any installation instructions for said file. You can add multiple files to a single package. The file(s) and instructions are compressed into a single package. Compressed packages allow for faster transmission of software and data over low-speed network connections.

After you have created your package in Package Studio and uploaded it to SOTI MobiControl, you can send it to your devices using a profile.

See Using Package Studio for specific instructions on creating packages in Package Studio.

Packages are only available for deployment on the following platforms: Android Plus, Linux, Windows Mobile/CE, Windows Modern (Desktop), and Printer.

Note: Download Package Studio from the Packages tab.
