Distribute Apps in Volume with ZuluDesk

The Volume Purchase Program allows educational institutions to purchase apps in volume and distribute them within their organizations.

We worked with Apple to seamlessly integrate the VPP portal with ZuluDesk Management System (ZMS).

It doesn’t matter if the device is student or school-owned. When associated you can push or revoke all your VPP apps.


Apps for iOS and Mac

Buy apps in volume for both iOS and Mac at the VPP store. Free apps are also available, so you can provide students and faculty with all the tools they need to enhance learning.

Pricing for Education

Developers can offer education institutions special pricing on apps through VPP. If a developer has enabled education pricing, institutions receive a 50% discount when purchasing in quantities of 20 licenses or more.

Books from the iBooks Store

Use VPP to purchase a wide variety of books from the iBooks Store. Discover children’s books, classic novels, reference guides, and textbooks from major publishers, and bring entirely new ways of learning to your institution.

Flexible Options

When you buy apps and books in volume you can assign apps and books using ZuluDesk.

Managed App Distribution

Easily distribute apps to users while retaining ownership and control. Invite users to participate, then assign apps using ZuluDesk. Apps can be used on all the user’s devices and when no longer needed, reassigned to a different user.

Automatic Instal

If a student’s device is supervised, you can install apps and books automatically over the air. This ensures your students always have the right app at the right time, all the time. As a result students are always provided with the right apps.
