While the iOS App Store is a great solution for commercial software, not all iOS apps are for public use. If you are building an app just for use inside your company, you won’t want to go through Apple’s app review process (which can take weeks) nor make your app available to the general public. How do you quickly and easily deploy an iOS app just for use by others in your organization?
Apple has an iOS Developer Enterprise Program that it just for this purpose. For $299 per year, you can easily deploy apps to your organization without having to deal with the iOS App Store. This program was originally quite expensive but at $299 per year, it makes it affordable for most business.
Apple has a solution for consultants that write custom solutions for a variety of different companies. It’s called the Volume Purchase Program.
