Easy and flexible working with Apple
Employees work best when they have access to the best tools. 78% of millennials believe that they are more efficient when they are allowed to work with their preferred technologies. Three out of four employees choose an Apple device when asked to state a preference1
And with good reason as Apple devices are user-friendly and intuitive to boot. The Mac is also flexible and simple to integrate and roll out across existing environments.
Macs used to need several chips for the processor, I/O, security and storage in order to run properly, but with the M1 chip, all of these are combined into a system on a single chip (SoC) becoming a real game-changer in the world of IT.
Choose Your Own Device – CYOD
What happens when you leave it up to your employees to decide which devices they want to work with? Apple commissioned Forrester Consulting to analyse seven enterprises to examine the total economic impact (TEI) of such a policy.
Employees were given the option of selecting a Mac and an evaluation of the devices’ technical deployment and implementation within the companies was also carried out. Key results:
- The Mac is easier and quicker to deploy
- Employees who use a Mac are more productive and require less IT support
- Employee loyalty is higher among Mac users.
The benefits of working with Apple.
Employees work more productively as a Mac is easier to use and needs less IT support.
Apple helps you work more securely. Want to find out how? You can read all about it here.
Macs are easy to integrate into and roll out across existing environments. Implementation is simple, downtime is low, and the systems are ready to use out of the box.
Your employees can collaborate more effectively with a Mac, regardless of where they are. Did you know that Apple devices can be seamlessly integrated into Microsoft solutions such as Microsoft Teams? This not only enhances collaboration, but also boosts productivity.
Macs are more affordable. Although purchase prices for Apple devices tend to be higher, follow-up costs are lower and fewer software licences and virus protection software are needed than with PCs. If, however, you use Office 365 or also want to protect your network, you’ll have to spend a bit more. An Apple device’s high residual value is also something that should be considered, allowing you to trade in your mac for another device after a few years or choose to pay a lower monthly fee as part of Bechtle’s Device as a Servicesolution.
Apple devices are gentle on the environment. Apple does its bit towards environmental protection, foregoing harmful substances during production and keeping power consumption to a minimum. The company also recycles many of the materials used, including the aluminium.
