At PDQ.com, we understand and appreciate that every network environment is unique. Each is made up of a unique collection of hardware and software designed to ensure its users have the tools necessary to succeed. Often, this results in a diverse mixture of both Windows and Apple products. While PDQ.com's focus over the years has been providing solutions for Windows administrators, our desire has always been to support all IT professionals, no matter what platforms they manage, which is why we're excited to welcome SimpleMDM to the PDQ family.
