Customised Procurement and Deployment of Business IT Solutions

MAC1 has years of experience carrying out IT deployments, both large and small. Our clients are diverse and include small to medium businesses, government agencies and corporate clients. We’re able to create a custom solution just for you, and have listed some of the most common requirements below to guide you in your decision.

With a centralised system designed for deployments, we are able to carry out deployments with minimal fuss, saving time and human resources. To support the requirements of our national customer base, MAC1 has commissioned a purpose built, secure facility in Sydney from which to conduct all of our pre-delivery services.

MAC1 Deployment Service Components:

Our Asset Registration service can collect and collate information for individual machines deployed in your environment, including serial numbers, MAC addresses and other required information, which can be mapped to a Rollout ID number.
MAC1 is able to apply labelling to each device, for both site and machine identification. If individual labels are to be applied, then this would normally be done in conjunction with our Asset Registration service.
MAC1 can apply any machine-specific settings to each computer, for the efficient deployment of a Standard Operating Environment (SOE) images to each computer.

Please note: Off-site Services and Delivery* is a pre-requisite for SOE Deployment.

Although it is common to apply a Standard Operating Environment to all machines, it is usual for each machine to also be individually personalised, such as enrolling in an MDM system, binding to a directory service such as Open Directory or Active Directory and creating a unique mobile user account for the end user – something that can only be done on the actual network and on each machine.
Where an external drive is being used as a Time Machine backup destination, it is necessary for the drive to be prepared as the destination drive and to exclude unwanted data from backup, such as the system partition. MAC1 will individually assign the drives to the computers and set the exclusions.
MAC1 can provide the manpower to remove the delivered units from their packaging, physically distribute, and then connect them to power and ethernet in their environment. Limit of one installation location per 20 devices.
Where MAC1 is not performing any Deployment Services off-site, delivery is included free of charge. However, in some cases, it is preferable to have MAC1 perform some or all Deployment Services offsite prior to delivery. In these cases, an additional delivery charge* will also apply.
MAC1 is able to securely and in an environmentally-friendly manner dispose of packaging. Where any other service is already being provided (SOE Deployment, Asset Registration, Asset Tagging etc) the removal and disposal of the outer brown shipping box is included at no additional charge.
MAC1 can provide assistance in planning and running Handout Events, including distributing personalised machines to each recipient at the single event. As a guide, we recommend one MAC1 staff member for every 50 machines for an efficient handout event.

Please note this is only available within 80km of a MAC1 location.
