"I switched from PCs to Macs at my dental office and Al was absolutely wonderful in getting us all set up. From networking to ensuring we were HIPAA compliant, I felt confident that everything would run smoothly - and it has! He even stayed in touch and followed up with us to make sure we were not having problems while on vacation in another country! I would highly recommend AppleWisdom for any of your Mac support needs."
"We went through quite an extensive process to find Apple Wisdom and an Apple Consultant to fit our company's immediate and ongoing needs. There is a review that was written that describes almost exactly our experience with Apple Wisdom. They said,"It really is paramount to find someone who not only has the technical expertise and abilities that can help you but also can connect with what your needs are and where your company is heading. Apple Wisdom did that and more...It is really refreshing to find a resource who will ultimately not only help you resolve or manage your technical needs but also help empower and educate you along the way." We feel very lucky to have found Apple Wisdom and appreciate all that they do for us!!"

"I have been wanting a MacBook pro forever, but had issues due to needing windows for my business. I knew I would need help setting up the mac with the windows operating system so the Apple store gave me a list of names. Well, I hit the jackpot when I found Al. He actually came to my home, (no one else would) and spent 21/2 hours with my daughter and me. He got the parallels and window software installed in my Mac and helped my daughter and myself with a plethora of other issues. I can't say enough about what a great and knowledgeable guy Al is and what a comfort it is knowing I can call on him in the future need be."
"I have a High School Mac lab and Al was able to take care of the issues we were having and get us back up and running on all of the computers. He is timely when he takes care of issues and he is very knowledgeable. About the only thing he didn't do was walk on water. I highly recommend him!"
"Al is one of the most knowledgeable, dedicated and hard working IT professionals I have ever seen. He took his job very seriously and always tried to put 110% efforts to get it done in a timely manner. He helped us with a server migration project and other server issues and I am very satisfied with the service. I highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for an Apple guru for any Mac project."
"Al Vidovic was so helpful in explaining new things to me and is patient enough to make me do them myself. Because of him I had the nerve to go beyond my desk top and buy a Pro Mac book which I have wanted for sometime but needed help in selecting one with someone I could trust. He is my permanent support now."
"We came across Apple Wisdom after a lot of challenges and lost time and efficiency because we hadn't yet found the right resource for our needs or specific technical solution. It really is paramount to find someone who not only has the technical expertise and abilities that can help you but also can connect with what your needs are and where your company is heading. Apple Wisdom did that and more and our search for finding a long-term partner who can help support our growing needs as we transition from where we are as a company to the company we will be in 1 year or 10 has really been satisfied. It is really refreshing to find a resource who will ultimately not only help you resolve or manage your technical needs but also help empower and educate you along the way. So wonderful, thank you Apple Wisdom!!"
"Not only were we switching all of our computers over to MAC, we were moving our business to a new location! Al came over once I got my Mac. He did a basic tutorial that helped me tremendously. He is patient and is a great teacher. Once we got into the new office he came in and hooked us up with our Mini Mac server and our time capsule. I am still in the process of moving things from old PC to Mac. When I am ready we will have Al come back to get us all set on the other Mac. Also I have to say that we have had several different "PC guys" come over to try and network, or fix our computers. Al is by far the most professional one that I have ever met. You will not be disappointed!!!"
"Mr. Albert Vidovic of AppleWisdom installed a network of I-Macs in my medical office. I have been in practice for close to 30 years and have burned through several PC networks. This time against the advise of my IT consultants I chose to go with the Apple product. Their and my concern with Apple was its proprietary reputation and the difficulty in finding qualified IT people to maintain and setup the network. Mr. Vidovic was truly an amazing resource and extremely efficient and knowledgeable in putting my office network together. Mr. Vidovic worked fast and answered all my and my staffs questions without missing a beat.
I cannot speak highly enough of this gentleman and his organization. Its very comforting for me and my staff to have such a knowledgeable resource in the background if we run into any problems.
If you are considering using an Apple consultant don't even think twice AppleWisdom truly lives up to its name!"
"Al is a true professional. He arrived on time and he was ready to work. Al analyzed the situation and discussed the plan with us before he started to do anything. Al provided detailed documentation outlining the work that he performed. He is also a great teacher and is very willing to help you understand the process. I highly recommend Al and AppleWisdom LLC. I will use AppleWisdom's services in the future without hesitation. Keep up the great work!."
Ann Arbor, MI
"Al was great to work with, not only for his expertise, but his attention to communicating and explaining what he was doing, why, and what the options were.
He was keen to listen and understand my goals and needs, and worked quickly and efficiently. Really, it was impressive!
I will certainly be employing his service again, and recommend him highly.."
Ann Arbor, MI
"Al is, simply put, a star. He is immediately able to grasp what you need whatever your own level of knowledge. He is able to bypass major obstacles on the spot where most folks would simply schedule a return visit. He answers your requests immediately. I have worked with him installing a network in our medical office and also installing a Macpractice server and am completely satisfied. I don't plan on using anyone else."
"Al Vidovic has been an absolute "lifesaver" for our company. We recently switched to Mac computers after many years of PC use. He set our network up, explained what he was doing each step of the way and offered suggestions on how to be more efficient with our Macs. We have had some issues with one of the computers freezing in Office and other issues with Comcast to which Al was very responsive.
I would recommend Apple Wisdom to anyone with Apple products.."
"I can't say enough positive things about Al at Apple Wisdom. Al helped me set up an Apple server to network all of my systems, 3 Macs, iPhone, iPad and 3 PC's. His advice is always sound and welcome. As a business owner, it is nice to work with someone who is familiar with my systems and can offer honest and proactive assistance to improve my work flow or diagnose a problem. He's not your "typical" IT guy!"
"Our office would have been in chaos if not for the expertise of Al.
When our old x-ray unit "died", we made a decision to go with digital equipment. That meant determining the equipment that was needed, installing computers in each operatory (6), downloading new software, upgrading our existing computers (4), networking everything together, creating a method for back-up, setting up security and passwords, etc. To make things more difficult, our office does not have access to high speed cable, so Al had to come up with alternate ways to get the software downloaded and updated. And, because we needed to be able to use the x-ray equipment, there was an urgency to get everything running ASAP. Al went above and beyond the call of duty and got everything running so that we had NO down time with computers. We are so grateful for his expertise and would recommend him to anyone needing a knowledgeable consultant."
Grosse Point, MI
"Our business experienced a complete meltdown when our servers and all things IT were taken hostage by a rouge employee. Apple Wisdom was immediately responsive, intuitively assessed the magnitude of the problems we were facing, and provided unsurpassed knowledge and expertise in getting us up and running, while assuring our future would be safe. We continue to utilize their services for support and long range planning."
"After experiencing weeks of Internet, iCloud conflicts, hours on the phone with my server, and a IT home visit, none of which solved the problem, I decided to contact AL. The only problem is that I live in Paris. I explained the situation as best as I could. Al gave me three steps to perform and the crisis was resolved in less than 15 minutes! I used to call him Doctor AL, now he's Professor AL! This guy is GOOD!."
Royal Oak, MI
"Al is very patient with someone like me who is unfamiliar with Mac products. He takes his time and walks you through everything you need to know and checks back with you to make sure you understand. His consultations on products that can be beneficial to your business is very helpful and he gives you all the information you will need to help make your decision. He is very quick to respond for support and questions you may have. We are truly happy we have Al as our IT specialist!"
Ann Arbor, MI
"You can expect: Near-instant responses to support tickets, thoughtful and honest answers to requests for advice, and intimate knowledge of the products and applications he troubleshoots. This consultant is very value-driven, recommending only what makes sense, and even helping find the best price. He is able to solve many problems remotely, by talking a user through a process over the phone, or by remote desktop access. He has helped our company grow and implement IT solutions that are desperately needed in the face of that growth. I would absolutely recommend him to any small or growing business."
Genesee County, MI
"I worked with AppleWisdom to switch my dental office to Mac. This was a large project as we have about 17 computers. Al really knew what he was doing and had extensive knowledge of our Practice Management System also. Everything went really well. I really appreciate the time, effort and continuing contact Al has had with me on this project. I highly recommend Al and his company! A real Professional experience! Thank you Al-"
"Al Vidovic helped us to completely outsource our company's IT department. He quickly implemented a solution with the security and manageability that our company was looking for to improve employee efficiency, interactions with clients, and remote accessibility. All of our team members have enjoyed interacting directly with Al, and have commented on both his ability to communicate with them irrespective of their individual level of knowledge and the value of the expertise that he shared."
"I would hire him over and over again! The fact that he asks lots of questions before he comes out onsite, saves loads of time and money. He discussed your needs and found a solution. I cannot say enough good things about him! One service I would like to see him offer is more tutorial references once he leaves the jobsite. He has offered support in more ways than one! Do yourself a favor and Hire him!"
"Always our go-to Apple Consultant of choice whether it's to set up a whole new system or troubleshoot an issue. Always provides prompt service whether it be troubleshooting via phone, email and when necessary on-site when needed. Always leaves us in better computing shape!"
"I am the technology director at a K-12 school with 350 students and 150 faculty/staff. Al Vidovic with AppleWisdom has helped us with several projects and is our most preferred consultant. Al designed our custom database to house all of our student data and exhaustive student reporting. This database has changed the way we work and has saved us countless wasted hours. Al has also been an invaluable resource to us in configuring and managing our various servers and our network. Al is prompt, conscientious, adept and resourceful at anything related to computers, and is a pleasure to work with. Al and AppleWisdom are the best!"
"Al at AppleWisdom did a phenomenal job working with my office in converting my PC based computers to Apple's. He was always reliable and responsive to our needs and time constraints and communicated with language that could be understood. I will definitely use him again in the future for my business and personal needs. He is a invaluable asset and friend."
Ann Arbor, MI
"Working with AppleWisdom was an absolute delight. They helped us navigate all the bumps of opening a new business, ranging from phone to internet to consulting on a Point of Sale retail system. They are polite, timely, and just all-around great to work with and saved us tons of money in selecting the right system that would best meet our needs. I highly recommend AppleWisdom!"
"After years of painful IT "support" in my office, we finally found Al at Apple Wisdom and couldn't be happier! Al is carefully and steadfastly dismantling all of the "quick fixes" and proverbial duct tape that was holding the office together, relieving us of many of the day-to-day technology issues that had at times ground our production to an absolute halt in the past. Al is responsive, thoughtful, thorough and always pleasant to work with! My employees are no longer afraid to call tech support when they need it, which is good news for everyone. As Al said to me when we first started working together, his whole job is to make himself obsolete in the office, and that's exactly what he's started to do. The remote access capabilities are also fantastic, as he can intervene when we need it as well as work in the evenings or on weekends, with no one in the office. It is wonderful to know that he's there when we need him [even from out of the country!], but also that we need him less and less with each passing month. I couldn't recommend Al more highly!"
Mount Clemens, MI
Wish I knew of Al years ago , would have saved me time , money, stress.. Very knowledgable , able to problem solve and instruct very well.
Al is the BEST!! Al is very professional and kind to me when I have questions. Kindness is necessary as I am a sub-novice at this IT-computer-phone... business. He speaks slowly and inspirationally to me as he walks me through my troubles. He visits my home, walks me through on the phone and sometimes takes over my computer remotely ( love that ). I can't recommend him or his services enough. I was just in tears with Apple Support ( literally ) but Al to the rescue! Best Apple Dude, ever! We now have 4 Apple devices, more to come I'm sure.
Commerce Twp., MI
Best care your money can buy
I, personally, have been using Apple computers for the past 10 years and find them vey easy to work with (vs. the PCs I used before). Recently, I decided to change all the computers in my office to Mac a long with adding a server. I was clueless how to go about it and the nearest Apple store suggested I talk to Al from AppleWisdom. Al came to our office, listened to our needs, evaluated the situation and made his recommendations for equipment as well as installation. His quote was very reasonable. I leased the hardware from Apple and then he came and installed/setup. Al is very easygoing and is able to simplify all tasks and instructions. I was very impressed with his approach to the job and his follow up as well. Furthermore, when I called him at later time with questions, he was more than willing to assist and instruct me patiently. This is very much the way I treat my customers/patients and I am appreciative to AppleWisdom for taking the same approach in conducting their business! I certainly will continue to do business with both Apple and AppleWisdom and would have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone.
Responsive, Knowledgeable and a True Expert
Al was tenacious and persistent in fixing my computer problems involving an application not working and the intrusion of adware and malware on my computer. HE answered his phone, made time for me when I needed him, and wouldn't stop until my problems were resolved. Al is now on speed dial for any future difficulties.
