A Money Maker Most MSPs Are Ignoring

[October 26 | 2:00pm ET, 11:00am PT]

MSPs looking to boost revenue don’t have to look far. It’s hard to miss all the buzz Apple is creating these days. Already more than 55% of businesses use Mac devices, according to a Parallels survey, and that number is only expected to grow as the tech giant amps up marketing efforts towards SMBs.

Despite the data, many MSPs continue to turn a blindeye to the Apple devices in their managed networks. The truth is people love Apple products, and like it or not, you need to support them.

Join us on Wednesday, October 26th at 2pm ET to learn how you can take advantage of Apple’s growth. Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • The risks of not managing every device connecting to your client networks
  • The differences between managing Apple vs Windows devices
  • What RMM means in the Apple ecosystem
  • How Addigy can help you take those pain in the a$$ Macs and turn them into moneymakers

Stay on with us after the presentation for an in-depth discussion, where we’ll cover additional questions about Apple, MDM, Addigy, and more.
