Every company that deploys PC’s should consider this:
Big Blue began offering employees the ability to use a Mac at work starting on June 1, and adoption has been a tremendous success.
[Fletcher] Previn [Vice President of Workplace-as-a-Service at IBM] revealed that IBM is now deploying 1,900 Macs per week, and there are currently 130,000 iOS and Mac devices at use within the company. All of these devices are supported by just 24 help desk staff members.
Further, Previn revealed that just 5 percent of Mac users call IBM’s internal help desk for assistance, compared to 40 percent of PC users.
…Macs require less management and setup effort than PCs, he said, saving IT personnel valuable time. And fewer employees are needed to support Macs than traditional PCs, he said.
“Every Mac that we buy is making and saving IBM money,” Previn said.
