Jamf as a company and product has been around since 2002. But it hasn’t been until IBM chose Jamf for their choice program that it really took off. Since then organisations, governments, schools, and many more have gone with Jamf to manage their Apple devices. Be it working only with Jamf or integrating it with existing systems for managing other platforms.
We have been working side by side with Jamf for many years, and can even call ourself ex-employees. So if you are looking for help implementing it or growing we are here for you and have the experience to guarantee success.
Inside your organisation you will have a lot of people that would love to use Mac. Statistics gathered by Apple management tool vendor Jamf in a 2016 employee survey uncovered 3 out of 4 employees would choose Apple. So demand is there - you’ve never supported Apple in your environment and you don’t know where to start?
Origin84 are experienced in managing the journey of achieving Apple device integration in business of all scale - from those few designers to a company wide Employee Choice program for enterprise. There are many secrets in making that a success, but the top line is that we will engage the right stakeholders in your business and become the chaperone along your journey.
We acknowledge is that our partners are already in existing relationships and we’re okay with that. What we are not looking to do is walk in the door and turn your entire world upside down and having you change you procurement or support methodology for your team - or worse, locking you into exclusive arrangements you don’t want.
Origin84 have friends in high places: the best people to have around you when you are working with Apple is Apple themselves. Origin84 are well respected by Apple Australia and will make sure that we can get the right person in the room to assist you answering the curly questions before you make decisions.
Origin84 are not an Apple Reseller: by not being a reseller we are able to allow you to buy through your existing Apple supplier, or, if you don’t have someone in that position we can introduce you buying from Apple directly.
Origin84 are focussed on Apple: you’ve implemented Apple in your organisation but then you end up on a mailing list for Microsoft Surfaces, Epson Printers, Cisco Networking and something called end point protection? Origin84 are focussed on Apple integration not sales so you won’t be getting a marketing EDM from us selling you things you don’t want or need - EVER!
Origin84 love to overshare: got a team? We want to be part of it. There is no hidden agenda to take over your whole IT environment (unless you’d like us to) so we are always happy to up-skill and educate your staff and make sure the work we do enhance your organisations reputation for professional development and training - Your HR team will love us for that!
“Initially thought I was clever when I emailed Origin84 for pricing on a new file server for my studio with list specifications off the Apple website. It wasn’t a quote that was sent back but a question instead – “How will you be using it?” – and an offer to catch up for a coffee.
When we met with Michael it became clear that what I had asked for was not going to cut the mustard – but ultimately I ended up with a much more fitting solution for our needs that Origin84 arranged to implement. What a relief!
We’re still buying from our contact at Apple and share a great relationship with the local store but we are also now guided by Origin84 during the procurement process as to what the best devices for us will be.”
