Control every device with Hublet Manager

Hublet Manager is our powerful cloud-based administration platform that gives you all the tools you need to configure your devices, curate the content that appears on your tablets, manage your account and understand how your tablets are being used.

Unlike off-the-shelf ‘consumer’ tablets that require staff to manually setup, configure and manage the device, with Hublet Manager you create unique profiles that automatically set devices up the moment they are loaned based on the type of person borrowing it. Profiles are a hugely powerful way for you to curate your digital collections and ensure that devices are used responsibly.

Curate your collection with profiles

Profiles are at the heart of the Hublet solution, allowing you to curate the content that your users will have access to based on the type of user they are. For example, you may create a child profile designed for under 13 year-olds, which features books, magazines and audiobooks that you can verify are child friendly and perhaps limit access to apps that show external content – for example removing access to streaming video content from YouTube.

All of the digital content and apps associated with a profile are downloaded to the device at the moment it is loaded. This powerful feature means you don’t have to worry about who loaned a tablet last or concern yourself with content a particular user will have access – it’s all handled for you by Hublet Manager and the Hublet UI.

Some example profiles

Children

Provide child-friendly reading material, magazines and audiobooks while limiting app that show external content.

Have all the apps needed for your makerspaces to control printers, program robots and let creativity flourish.
