Help, Guides, and News on making the Switch To Apple Macintosh Computers
Bill Chute, Aozora's chief technology officer is quoted as stating the following:
"The question for us was how to simplify the environment and bring it forward 15 years in one jump"
"The Mac's ease of use, reputation for security and flexible UNIX-based platform prompted the switch from Windows"
The article also quotes Brian Croll, a senior marketing director at Apple, as stating:
"It has attracted a whole new set of customers that we'd never really talked to before. We're dealing with government agencies, science and technology firms, even trucking companies."
The deal lends credence that Macs and OS X can appeal to enterprises. The agreement with Aozora may provide Apple with the means it needs to make further in-roads with business customers.
