We provide the lowest-cost and highest-quality services available, based on Lab-Standard hardware and software, automated management systems, and many, many years of experience.
IT provides the following services for all new and re-purposed workstation requests:
- Help selecting the ideal iPad for your work and budget
- Procurement of hardware and accessories
- Enrolling iPad in our management system
- Pre-configuring the iPad with Berkeley Lab recommended software and settings
- Delivery, installation, and configuration
- Transfer data, settings, and applications from previous iPads
- Retrieval and re-purposing of previous iPads
IT charges a fixed rate of $100/hr for iPad procurement and setup.
These fees ares not charged to personnel from Operations Divisions, as part of the Operations Desktop Support program.
How to Request Service
Users can request an iPad through our Google form. These forms will generate a service request in the askUs system.
IT highly recommends that users deploy Lab-standard models.
The same form is used for ordering workstations as well as iPads, so not all questions will be relevant to the purchase of an iPad. In order to request an iPad, select iOS as the operating system, and tablet as the computer type.
Selecting from the standard configurations will ensure the fastest delivery of your workstation.
Any customiuzation made to these specifications will require additional time and labor for provisioning.
