Knowing how these tools can be structured and implemented will save you and your organization a great amount of time. In this session, you will hear how these have been used in a 1:1 environment to streamline the purchasing of apps and assignment of licenses, delegate support and repair to tier I individuals, speed up the creation and assignment of Apple IDs and allowed for many previously IT tasks to live outside the server room. In addition, techniques for other daily support will be shared, such as a broken device replacement workflow using Google for Work and other lessons.
