Smart Businesses use Mac

Moving to the Mac will not only bring new efficiencies and tools into your business, it will do far more than that.

It will change both how your team feels about its work and how your customers view your services. You’ll be sending a powerful signal that you stand for quality and innovation.

Smart Businesses use Mac
Flexibility to work across operating systems

When businesses begin using the Mac, they’re often surprised by what happens next as benefits start showing up across the business.

Flexibility to work across operating systems

The Mac is the only computer that can simultaneously run Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. By adopting Macs, you’re not shutting out your Windows options – you’re allowing yourself to work with the best of both. This gives your business an unprecedented flexibility, both internally and when it comes to dealing with customers and the programs they’re using.

Reduce downtime, cut IT costs

Macs are renowned for being easy to use, and this can have an immediate impact on business. Macs are fast to learn and your staff will rapidly find tasks easier to achieve – and more enjoyable too. But equally importantly, they will experience far less down time – Macs have a more stable platform, crash less and are quicker to reboot. When you total up the time savings you’ll typically find you’re adding many hours to the working week.

Differentiate your business

Macs are associated with quality and innovation, and they make a genuine difference to how you are perceived. Business after business has found that using Macs in presentations and the like differentiates them from their competitors and marks them out as forward-thinking and fast-moving – and this is even more marked if they operate in a sector where Mac adoption is low.

People love using Apple

You’ll probably already have members of staff who use the iPhone – and you’ll probably find they love using them. You may even have staff who are already using iPad for their work, and it’s likely they’ll be doing their job in new ways. Put simply, people enjoy using Apple products. So by giving them Macs, you’re making them feel better about their job and giving them a strong incentive to stay with you. And that feelgood factor has powerful knock-on effects across the business.

What our customers say

If you’ve never used a Mac before in your business, you may be wondering what difference they make. We asked some of our customers to tell us:

“Let’s face it, the Mac is a slick and sexy computer. When I walk into a meeting with my MacBook Air, people take notice. When I leave, everyone remembers my presentation.”

“We’ve always used and deployed Windows, we knew nothing about Mac so we just ignored it. Some smaller, more nimble competitors started taking business away, partly because their sales guys used Macs and customers thought they were more progressive. Fortunately, Trams not only helped us get up to speed quickly, their willingness to transfer their knowledge and experience to our IT guys made all the difference.”

“I want all my employees to use Macs. They’re so easy to use. Just because we’re accountants doesn’t mean we have to be boring. We want our people to enjoy their jobs and using the Mac is a big step in that direction for us.”
