Enterprises are seeing increasing demand for Apple devices in the workplace, leading to more businesses embracing employee choice programs. Insight (NASDAQ:NSIT), the global provider of Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, is launching Insight Managed Mobility for Apple, an end-to-end solution that helps clients easily equip their workforces with Mac, iPhone and iPad.
“Employees increasingly want to use Apple products at work, and businesses are seeing the return on investment in their employees’ productivity gains,” said Steve Dodenhoff, president, Insight North America. “Providing managed services for Apple to our clients helps IT seamlessly integrate these devices into their environment.”
A 2018 Harvard Business Review Analytic Services study on “The Connected Workforce” shows that enterprises offering more choices see improved employee satisfaction, performance and retention. Half of employers say workers expect the freedom to select their own devices, and only 43 percent believe their current technology makes it easy to collaborate with their peers.
