iOS: Purchase apps for an organization or multiple devices

=========
QUESTION
——— 
I am rolling out several iPads and iPod Touches across an organization, and need a way to purchase multiple copies of apps across several devices.

How do we do this without having to setup several individual iTunes accounts?  

 

=========
ANSWER
——— 
Setup an Apple VPP (Volume Purchase Program) account first.

This sets up a centralized VPP Apple ID that is then only used for the VPP account, not the individual device iTunes account signons. 

———
Use any of the several MDM (Mobile Device Management) options available for iOS.
