The Android Platform OEM (POEM) Service is a service kit app that allows VMware AirWatch to provide extended management capabilities to generic Android devices.

When a customer has chosen a more cost-effective or "off brand" Android device to support their business need, the chances that AirWatch supports advanced enterprise management features is very low, so the POEM Service allows customers to use these devices and support certain features which require minimal effort from the OEM or the customer.
