Apple Mac IT Support for Multi-Academy Trusts

Multi-Academy Trusts give their schools all the support they need to thrive. Through a centralised strategy, they can provide high-quality solutions and bring significant efficiencies to their members. But who supports the trusts and gives them all the tools to look after their academies and ensures they have access to additional expertise when they need it. They get access to all the necessary services at the best possible value?

At Counterpoint, we have extensive experience in supporting multi-academy trusts - here’s how we do it:

Escalation Support

It can be difficult to find and retain staff with the right Mac AD integration and networking skills to support an educational environment; particularly if Apple products are only part of your schools’ infrastructure and most of your team are Windows experts. Perhaps you have just one or two Apple experts for the whole Trust? What happens when they move on? Have they left behind bespoke scripts that nobody else understands? If you let the management of your Apple devices slip you’ll be left with students and staff who are frustrated by performance issues, that have unsecured access to your network and logins that don’t follow GDPR guidelines. Counterpoint can provide dedicated Apple experts to keep your devices and network secure, and ensure everything is always running smoothly.

By outsourcing the management of your Apple fleet to us you can not only save on the cost of having fully trained Apple experts in-house, but you have access to an experienced escalation support team when you need advice or face challenging technical issues.

Manage all sites centrally

Device management is a skill all in itself. Our expert engineers can install, configure, and maintain a multi-tenant platform for your network so that you don’t have to spend time and money training your staff to use a new tool. Manage all your devices on a single pane of glass delivers significant economies of scale. We can set the platform up with all the security policies and configuration profiles, specifically for an education environment, that you need to make imaging machines and installing 3rd party software straightforward and simple. It’s also a great tool for pushing out updates, monitoring and resolving problems, accessing Macs remotely, and carrying out full site audits.
