Adds Premier Apple Expertise, Tools and People to Growing IT Services Portfolio.

McLean, VA. December 1, 2020 – Ntiva, Inc., a leading provider of managed IT, cloud hosting, cyber security, unified communications and strategic IT consulting services, today announced the acquisition of Forget Computers, a leading Chicago-based Apple technology service provider.

Forget Computers is recognized as the top-rated Apple Technology experts in the Midwest and have focused solely on helping organizations support their macOS and iOS users. With this acquisition Ntiva will now be one of a very few Managed Service Providers (MSPs) who can deliver full Apple support (macOS, iOS) with Apple-certified technicians, tools and workflows. Most MSPs offer limited, if any, support for pure Apple or Apple-Windows hybrid environments, historically shoehorned under existing Windows processes and tools.


As companies focus more on attracting and retaining top talent, it has become apparent that allowing employees to use technology that they are most comfortable with yields the most productivity and overall job satisfaction. Additionally, the recent shift to remote work has further accelerated the trend to Apple devices, with employees now using Macs, iPads and iPhones to access business applications and data. 


Ntiva and Forget Computers have been on the front line of this trend and are committed to building seamless delivery that does not compromise security or collaboration. While Apple products are known to offer enhanced reliability and security, no platform today is bulletproof. It has become a business imperative to properly manage, secure and support Apple devices and the people who use them. 


“Expanding our service capabilities to enhance our support of Apple products in a seamless and secure manner with a dedicated team of professionals and intellectual property is a game changer for our clients and industry.” said Steven Freidkin, CEO of Ntiva.


“We are thrilled to welcome the Apple-certified team from Forget Computers who bring 20+ years of Apple experience to the table, along with custom software tools that offer advanced support. This means that in addition to superior support for pure Apple environments, our clients will also have access to skilled technicians who are experienced in more traditional mixed platforms. This allows us to be in the unique position to partner with our clients and deliver a consistent and secure experience across Windows and Apple platforms.”


“Since 1998 we’ve been solely focused on supporting businesses who use Apple technology, providing the services, security and education they need to get the most out of their investment,” said Ben Greiner, Founder & President of Forget Computers. “Joining forces with Ntiva provides us with expanded resources and access to a bigger geographic footprint, allowing our combined team to unlock new revenue channels and opportunities while elevating the technological and strategic expertise available to our joint clients. I look forward to expanding on the vision I had from the beginning when I first founded Forget Computers.”

The entire Forget Computers staff will immediately become part of the Ntiva team and will continue to be led by Ben Greiner, Ntiva’s Director of Apple Technology.

This acquisition brings Ntiva’s employee count to over 300 employees and increases Ntiva’s client base to over 1400 organizations located across the U.S.
