As well as providing expert support for Mac OS X desktop systems, we can comfortably take on other Apple hardware, for example, support for OS X Server, or point of sale apps on a fleet of iPads.

After a client’s previous IT support provider told them that “Apple doesn’t work with Windows” and left multiple Mac users running standalone systems without a network connection, they came to us. We joined the Mac clients to the Windows network, allowing users to login and access the same file shares as the rest of the staff, and enabling management to enforce access controls to ensure that all data is regularly backed up.

A client with an all-Windows office network required their users to work from home, logging in remotely to their office PCs. To support staff who used Apple hardware at home, help4IT deployed a Remote Desktop Services server that allowed them to connect from any Windows or Mac desktop, or even an iPad or Android tablet if necessary.

A client’s customer-facing office has both a very specific design aesthetic and exacting software requirements. They wanted a desktop that looked like an iMac, but ran Windows. help4IT delivered, putting an Apple Boot Camp install on a new 27” iMac. The iMac now runs Windows 8, much to the satisfaction of our client.
