One of the prerequisites for having the Revo InTouch application is to be part of the Apple Developer Program. This initial process has to be done directly by the end customer, as Apple verifies the identity of the company, even with a phone call. In addition, the process will allow the customer to distribute their custom application to the App Store, as an organization and under their own name. Currently (2019), this Apple service has a cost of € 99.00/year.
Note: As a #REVOChannel, you are expected to provide direct support to your customers until the end of this process. The operation is complex enough not to expect all REVO customers to be able to carry it out autonomously.
