When it comes time to tackle workplace modernization, corporate IT leaders today have a difficult tradeoff to consider. On one hand, it’s clear that when given a choice of workplace devices, employees prefer Mac. They appreciate the familiarity, the convenience, and the ease of use. On the other hand? Mac is an investment. It’s often difficult to weigh these considerations and make a choice that’s in the best interests of the business.
At Zones, though, we think the choice is clear. We believe that Mac is worth investing in – and we have data to back it up. According to the “Total Economic Impact of Mac” study recently conducted by Forrester Research, Mac pays for itself by driving increased productivity and employee satisfaction. Over a three-year period, Mac actually costs less than investing in equivalent Windows-based notebooks.
The power of Apple Silicon
The key is that Apple silicon chips are driving supercharged productivity like no one’s ever seen before. The latest models of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are built with the next generation of Apple silicon, and that means a faster CPU, GPU, machine learning performance, and up to 24 GB of faster unified memory. The new MacBook Air is thinner, lighter, and faster than ever, and offers a larger display, better camera, and all-day battery life. Meanwhile, the 13-inch MacBook Pro offers sustained performance for demanding business tasks.
With these new, high-performing devices at their fingertips, your employees will discover more ways to be productive and collaborate across platforms. For example, Messages allows users to edit and unsend messages across platforms, and it centralizes collaboration experiences across multiple apps. FaceTime now has the ability to hand off calls between devices. Updates to Mail include undo send and schedule send, along with improved search. And more. With Mac, employees can work productively from anywhere, with anyone.
