Find my iPhone / Device for work setting?

Is there a way to setup find my iPhone/Macbook in a work setting?

Can it work on multiple machines with one Apple ID?

We are also looking at Undercover. It looks like they are set up for multiple machines.

Long story short, the bosses laptop (and camera+ lens) was stolen 5:30 wish on Friday afternoon.
Our security cameras did get a picture of the thief.
The Police were called.
It was his new machine and he did have find my iPhone on (he just did this on the new machine.)
It did "phone home" on Saturday. after calling the police, my boss drove over to the area find my iPhone indicated the Macbook was. He saw the thief waiting for a bus. He and police followed. Unfortunately when the guy got
off the bus, he didn't have the stuff on him and the police had to let him go. We'll see where this ends up.

He wiped his drive remotely & has a backup.
So we now want to get everyone's work laptop somewhat secured.
We are also implementing a locked door policy. We are a small printing company. 18 Employees, 10 laptops or so.

Glad you are looking at Undercover - it does so much more than Find my iPhone.
