JAMf Server-side Setup for Enterprise Level Mac Deployment
JAMf technology has streamlined the process for IT management of Apple devices. Utilizing JAMf for your company’s Mac deployment prepares the Mac or iOS devices for your company’s environment.

The challenge comes when a company needs to manage mass configurations. Simply put, the number of Macs you have directly impacts the level of Mac management you need. Your management needs can escalate quickly, which is why you need an IT company to handle mass deployments of Mac computers.
A JAMf server-side setup simplifies this process. A correctly and effectively implemented JAMf preconfigures machines using the Mac OS for for security, privacy, network, and applications. When Digital Fix Consulting purchases a new Mac or iOS device, it will also add it to the client’s Apple Business Manager account. As a result, this new machine will be automatically configured to your environment as soon as it turns on.

Moreover, Digital Fix Consulting helps your enterprise company by assuming the responsibility of employing your IT department itself.
