Before we get into the meat of corporate America, let me just wag my finger at Bloomberg for a second. Guys, you don’t spell iPad with a capital I – I knew this would be brought up in the comments at some point.
Back from nit-picking, Wells Fargo loves them some iPads and iPhones. After spending two years in researching the iPhone, they’ve finally let it enter their workforce. For the iPad, it only took a couple of weeks before being released for duty. In fact, the demand is so high from the banking company that they still haven’t received all the orders they requested yet. For Apple entrepreneurs and savvy suits, sleep well tonight knowing that Apple is starting to make a huge impact in the corporate world. We’ve seen this coming all along, and we’re placing our bets that Apple is set to unseat RIM and Microsoft from their corporate thrones.
Surely I’m jumping the gun a bit early. This is one company profile right? But it seems SAP AG, Telltabs Inc., and Mercedes-Benz are putting the iPad to use as well for email, approving orders, and getting auto-finance quotes on the go.
“This iPad thing has taken the world by storm,” said Ted Schadler, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research Inc. “It came in as a consumer product and very quickly the people who actually bought them were business people.”
The iPad is becoming an essential tool for traveling business men and women who need to display projects, run paperless offices, and engage customers at a new level. It’s such a success, that the Rob Enslin, President of SAP AG, says that “BlackBerry is the iPad.”
