The Benefits of Apple for business

Sarah Beldon Mobile, Apple

AWhen purchasing mobiles, tablets and equipment, it can be difficult to decide which makes and models are best to deploy across the business. At Onecom, we help our customers find the right solutions that fit their needs.

As an Apple Authorised Reseller and Apple Authorised Service Provider, we can help advise you when Apple is the right choice for you. If you’re considering looking at Apple for your business, here’s some of the newest stats we’ve got that highlights the benefits of using Apple across your business.

There’s evidence to show that using MacOS can actually reduce hardware, software support and operational costs, as much as £518.97 per device. The study conducted by Forrester also shows that employee performance and engagement is improved across the business when investing in MacOS machines. This includes 20% improved retention rates, 5% increase on sales and 48 hours of improved productivity.

The benefits of Apple in business

  • Less service time required

The research shows that on a per-device basis considering three-year support and operational costs, that there is less time needed to provision a Mac and fewer IT service tickets are opened over the same period. This requires less time per IT member over a higher number of devices.

  • Total cost of ownership is lower

In addition to this, the cost of total ownership of an Apple device can be much less, despite the cost of initial purchase being higher. This is because there is no need to purchase additional licensing for the OS license or for software maintenance. Macs also require less energy to operate and issues are easier to resolve, which can save even more money over the period of ownership.

  • Reduced security risk

The same research demonstrated that the risk of data breach was reduced by 50% with MacOS. This is estimated to value around £1.2 million. This is due to the fact that there is fundamentally more secure architecture already implemented within the Mac with no additional licensing required.

  • Improved performance and engagement

One of the more interesting results from the survey, was that there was a 20% retention rate in employees, a 5% increase in sales performance and at least 48 hours of increased productivity per employee over three years.

The impact financially can be huge depending on the size of the business, but also allows for improved machine performance which leads to less frustration and increased engagement.
