The Mac’s growing popularity is a boon to Addigy

Addigy, a provider of cloud-based Mac management software, has announced significant business milestones as the company’s technology platform gained widespread acceptance with businesses globally in 2017. The company says the growing popularity of the Mac spurred the growth.

With a growing number of small to medium-sized business, mid-market, and enterprise customers around the world, Addigy boasted a growth rate of more than 10X in 2017 compared to the previous year with continued success metrics forecast for 2018.

According to The Motley Fool, fiscal year 2017 was the best year ever for Macs, with Apple recording the highest annual Mac revenue in its history at 25% growth year-over-year. This trend is continuing with record-breaking revenue for Mac continuing into the company’s fiscal fourth quarter.

With security, higher rates of productivity, and fewer help desk tickets, there has been a 128% increase in the use of Macs within enterprises employing more than 500 employees. This is a boon to Addigy, which develops a full-stack cloud-based Mac management platform that allows for centralized management of Mac computing environments from the cloud. 

“Organizations throughout the world that deploy Mac computing environments require a management solution that ensures the proper maintenance and security of these systems,” says CEO Jason Dettbarn. “With Addigy, administrators can implement policies for configuration, updating, and monitoring that are always in force. The solution has the ability to configure systems and deploy more than 100 applications silently with a single click.”
