Businesses and schools set to benefit from new online training programme

A multi-platform IT solutions provider has launched a series of free online webinars to help businesses, schools and other public sector organisations manage their IT infrastructure.  

Newcastle-headquartered Opal IT, which works with UK and overseas organisations, is hosting its first webinar on Tuesday, October 4 at 1.00pm. 

Entitled “How to Deploy Mac in Enterprise”, the webinar will instruct IT professionals in SMEs, schools and other public sector bodies how to integrate, deploy and manage multiple Apple devices within their IT infrastructure.

It will be the first in a series of webinars from Opal. Others are planned for November and December and will be hosted by experts with vast industry experience at the company. Topics will cover a range of business-critical issues, including how to improve IT security and make IT networks more robust.  

Andrew Metcalfe, managing director of Opal, said: “We’ve seen a rise in demand for outsourced IT services, with many companies and organisations wanting to review and improve their IT infrastructure. That’s why we’ve decided to launch these webinars.

“The aim is to give schools, SMEs and other organisations vital hints and tips on how to integrate, deploy and manage multiple devices within their existing infrastructure. People can log into the webinar from the comfort of their home or office and it will only take 10-15 minutes of their time.

“The webinars will also be uploaded to the Opal website and dedicated You Tube channel so people can revisit them at any time. We want to help people think differently about their business or organisation and gain access to IT solutions that fit their current and future needs.”

Opal provides a wide variety of services and specialises in the creation, integration and maintenance of multi-functional, multi-site virtual networks. An Authorised Apple Premium service provider, approved Microsoft partner and a part of the Apple Consultants Network, the company works with local, national and international companies and its biggest client has more than 50 global sites and 25,000 employees worldwide. 

Since Opal was launched eight years ago, it has enjoyed stellar growth due mainly to its ability to fashion long-lasting, ongoing relationships with customers. It has also built its reputation on the back of several high-profile accreditations. The company is one of only a handful of UK firms to have achieved the coveted JAMF (Casper Suite) Integrator status for its ability to manage and integrate Apple devices in Enterprise.   

Opal has also become an Acronis Platinum Mobility Partner for its ability to deploy secure data access solutions on Apple, Android and Windows Devices.
