North East firms are being encouraged to sign up for a landmark event aimed at helping them get the most out of their Apple technology.

IT directors, managers and technical professionals will be able to learn how to use an innovative enterprise management tool, Jamf Pro, to improve workflows and boost the efficiency of their business.

To be held on Tuesday, February 12 (9.30am-12.00pm) at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, the event will be hosted by national tech specialist Opal IT, which has more than a decade’s experience of helping firms find the most effective way of managing and integrating Apple devices into their IT networks.

Andy Metcalfe, managing director of Newcastle-headquartered Opal, said: “In today’s challenging trading environment it has never been more important for companies to have an IT system that allows their business to become more efficient and competitive. Jamf is an internationally renowned enterprise management solution for the Mac, iPad, iPhone and Apple TV and by using this important too, businesses of all sizes can help their staff get the most out of IT systems. It can also allow firms to know who is using a particular device and when, even if that member of the team is off-site.

“Essentially, this event is all about helping companies improve their security, boost their productivity and reduce staff workloads and IT-related downtime.”

A fully accredited Jamf partner, Opal specialises in internet security, IT networks, virtualisation and storage as well as the integration and management of any device into any IT environment.
