Firms are increasingly reliant on IT and many are making the most of Apple Mac support to help them get the most from their computing solutions. One product that has really taken the business world by storm is the iPad.
The device has proved a hit with consumers since it was first released, but now more and more enterprises are taking advantage of it too.
According to Diligent Boardbooks, the iPad has “entered the highest echelons of business, including the boardroom.”
It noted that UK tablet sales to corporate buyers outstripped those to consumers in 2012, rising from 35 per cent of all purchases in the second quarter of 2011 to 64 per cent during the same period this year. Meanwhile, iPad sales accounted for 72 per cent of those tablet sales. This was up from the 56 per cent recorded a year earlier.
Diligent Boardbooks, which specialises in providing a secure board portal and iPad app, recently signed its 33rd FTSE 100 client, bringing the growth rate in use of the app among FTSE 100 companies to 72 per cent since the start of 2012.
The firm’s European managing director Charlie Horrell said: “Making the switch to an electronic portal is a natural progression for businesses and one which is altering the way company leaders and boards communicate on their most critical decisions.”
Companies can utilise iPads in a plethora of ways and the device’s highly portable nature makes it perfect for flexible and remote working. It seems likely that its popularity among enterprises will continue to grow.
To help make their lives easier, managers can take advantage of Apple support. By enlisting the help of experts like this, bosses can ensure their businesses’ IT systems run smoothly and effectively. Meanwhile, they also stand to reduce their stress levels.
