Apple Remote Desktop is the best way to manage the Mac computers on your network. Distribute software, provide real-time online help to end users, create detailed software and hardware reports, and automate routine management tasks — all without leaving your desk. Featuring Automator actions, Remote Spotlight search and a new Dashboard widget, Apple Remote Desktop 3 makes your job easier than ever.
Apple Remote Desktop 3, the award-winning desktop management system for Mac OS X, has more than 50 new features that deliver improvements in software distribution, asset management and remote assistance. Apple Remote Desktop 3 offers a wide range of high performance features, including lightning-fast Spotlight searches across multiple Mac OS X systems; more than 30 Automator actions for easy automation of repetitive tasks; a Dashboard widget that provides quick and convenient observation of remote systems; and AutoInstall for automatically updating software on mobile systems once they return to the network.
Installing software or updates to your network has never been this easy. Take an existing package, either from Apple or a third party, and simply use the Install Package to copy and install on your client computers. And it works with custom install packages as well. Apple Remote Desktop will alert your system’s users to upgrades and even restart machines remotely.
AutoInstall allows you to stage software on a Task Server, which then takes care of distributing the packages for installation on client computers. You can even set a schedule for installation to occur at a time that is most convenient for your organisation. And if a computer is not on the network, the Task Server will keep track and automatically install the package once the system is online.
Automation for your Macs
Those time-consuming administrative tasks will become a thing of the past, thanks to the addition of Automator actions in Apple Remote Desktop 3. To use Automator actions, all you need to do is drag and drop the actions to contruct a workflow.
More than 30 Automator actions are included with Apple Remote Desktop 3, which you can apply to set desktop pictures, Finder preferences, Energy Saver preferences, default time zones and more.
No need to make house calls
The screen-sharing features of Apple Remote Desktop allow you to provide immediate help to remote users, saving time for both of you. Don’t want your admin tasks to be seen? No problem, turn on the new Curtain Mode to block the local user’s view of their desktop. This is perfect when you’re updating a public display. You’ll have full control of the system, but your work will be hidden from view.
Administrators running Mac OS X, can also use the Remote Desktop widget to observe and obtain access to the computers under their control. And if you need to move files or folders to a single computer, the new, easy-to-use Remote Drag-and-Drop copy function makes the job a doddle. You can also copy and paste between local and remote systems — no extra steps necessary.
Reporting for duty
The new Remote Spotlight search takes advantage of one of the most powerful features of Mac OS X. Now you can perform lightning-fast, user-specified searches on remote client systems. Files from the results can be copied to the administrator system for reporting.
Apple Remote Desktop also makes it easy to compile reports on application usage, history, inventory and more. Hardware reports gather more than 200 attributes about networked Mac OS X systems, while software reports collect information on 16 file system attributes. Inventory reports can be gathered even from mobile systems not connected to the network, and results are stored in the included SQL database for fast access.

- In regular, permanent employment.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
