Ford, One of The Few “Fortune 500” Companies That Were Doing It, Is Passed to IOS

Tim Cook already made clear the goal of Apple in the note that he sent to its employees explaining the deal with IBM: right now the iOS devices are in 98% of the companies comprising the Fortune 500 list and must be in 100% entering ten companies that are missing. Today have gotten one more with Ford’s decision to leave BlackBerry and give all their employees with iPhones. The well-known brand of car sits in eighth place in the list of Fortune.

Thus it has been reported that Bloomberg, detailing that the change will be phased. This year 3,300 employees will receive an iPhone and 6,000 more terminals will be arriving over the next two years. Change is supported by the search for an analyst in mobile technology that will oversee all this change.

For Ford, the iPhone covers the professional and personal needs of employees in an only terminal

Sara Tatchio, a Ford spokeswoman, commented that the change to the iPhone “covers all needs employees it is able to use both for the needs of professional safely as the of our personal life; “all in a single device”.

Obviously, this is a positive hit for Apple as a negative for the already weak BlackBerry, a company that fails to find his place despite the efforts that are made. And with this, there are only nine Fortune 500 list companies whose employees don’t use iOS in a professional manner. Tim Cook today has a good reason to raise a glass of champagne.
