If you have your Company Incorporation number, you may get your Duns number on the spot.

Option One: Volume Purchase Program (VPP)

Process

For VPP we'll need your account name with Apple and we have to customise AMS before submitting to Apple for review. The customisation is usually just a case of applying your organisations logo to the splash image within AMS. Please email a high resolution logo to john@ams.io for use in the application.

Before submitting we also need some feedback on the changes we've made to AMS for your account.. To do this please add one device to our TestFlight account via the http://tflig.ht/1nd0TT5 (visit from the desired test device). The TestFlight service will allow us to send you  a test copy of AMS with the modifications for review.

Option Two: Enterprise Licence

Process

Once you have an Enterprise Developer account for which there is an annual fee payable to Apple  ( US$300 approx)  we need to build and sign AMS with your  Distribution certificate (if they have already created one).

Basically we need to build the app with your Enterprise Provisioning Profile. This is an annual process so as soon as you get a renewal notice (30 days notice and a 15 day notice)  it's best to start  the process so that we all have time to complete. If the renewal is not done, your iOS devices will simply stop working on the renewal date.

There is a further one off charge for Signing AMS with your Distribution certificate and purchase of  Signature component.

This is NZ$480  GST incl.

Sample of Second renewal notice sent from Apple.

On receipt of this notice it is essential that you complete the renewal process and advise us so we have time to complete the process. Min of 3 days required.
