Proactive Support Services

Most IT services operate a lot like plumbers, auto mechanics, and appliance repair services — they wait by the phone for your technology to break, and that’s when they get paid.

Ask Adam takes a different approach: proactive support.

We work with you to design stable, high performing systems, and we partner with you to keep them that way — we don’t want your Macs to break!

We offer a unique set of programs designed to keep your Macs healthy. Our goal is to prevent issues by keeping your Macs secure, up to date, and healthy. Our monitoring system Beacon detects potential issues as early as possible so that we can address issues before they become disasters. With Beacon Plus, you get monitoring, plus we take care of software updates, system maintenance, and security.


24/7 monitoring and diagnostics for your Mac
Beacon checks your Mac for problems so that we can take action before you are in serious trouble. Beacon’s diagnostic tests verify hard drive capacity and health, backup status, battery capacity, system uptime, and more.

When Beacon detects a problem, we are notified immediately, and we contact you with a solution.

Beacon is just $15/month (with a $10 nonrefundable setup fee), billed to any major credit or debit card. We think Beacon is an amazing value, and we’re so confident you’ll agree that we offer a free 30-day trial and a 60-day money back guarantee. There’s no long-term contract, so you’re not locked into anything. You can cancel at any time.

Subscribers also receive free email support, and a discounted hourly rate.


Beacon Plus

24/7 monitoring, maintenance, and security
Beacon Plus provides the same diagnostic monitoring as Beacon, plus:

  • software and security updates
  • malware removal
  • filesystem repair and system maintenance

A lot of people are unsure about which updates are safe to install and when it’s okay to install them. With Beacon+, we automatically update your Mac at the right time — generally a week or two after an update is first released, during which time we make sure things are working properly for the early adopters. This means you no longer have to wonder what to do each time an update is available.

Beacon+ also detects and removes viruses and malware, and performs regular maintenance of the filesystem.

By keeping your Mac updated and well-maintained, Beacon+ prevents many of the most common issues we see, saving time (and reducing costs) when you do need help.

Beacon+ is $29/month, and additional Macs are $20/month each.

Beacon+ subscribers also receive free email support and a discounted hourly rate!
