Comparing Bushel Features to the Casper Suite

Posted in: Bushel, Jamf Now

In October 2016, Bushel and Casper Suite were renamed Jamf Now and Jamf Pro. See the Jamf products page for a detailed comparison between the two products.

Apple technology continues to flood the workplace and Apple management solutions are more relevant today than ever before. And it isn’t just traditional, large organizations that are using Mac, iPhone and iPad at work anymore. That’s why we created Bushel. Bushel is Mobile Device Management, simplified for smaller environments. We set out to help these small and medium-sized businesses by building a simple, cloud-based mobile device management solution from the ground up. We’re not trying to be everything to everyone. Instead, we’re focused on being awesome for smaller types of environments!

We are a part of a larger company – JAMF Software. And the fact that JAMF already makes another extremely awesome and fully featured device management tool leads to some great questions around how Bushel stacks up against a full-featured Apple management tool like the Casper Suite. Let’s take a look!

Bushel delivers a key set of MDM features to small and medium-sized workgroups. The Casper suite delivers all of these same features, but it does so much more as well!
