A new study suggests that after switching from a Windows PC to a Mac, 97% of enterprise users feel more productive.
The survey was conducted by the Vanson Bourne market research firm for Jamf, which is a company that specialises in management solutions for Apple devices for businesses, governments and schools.
You may recall that the company recently released a survey that found that 71% of students would prefer a Mac to a PC.
While Jamf is obviously going to benefit from positive surveys like this, the results found by a third-party research firm show that a huge number of workers find switching to Apple devices improves their productivity, creativity and collaboration.
The results should be pleasant reading for Apple – and worrying for Microsoft. A large part of Microsoft’s business comes from enterprise users, so if they start switching to Mac, that’s not going to be good news.
According to the survey, which asked a range of users from IT, human resources, sales and engineering, 79% of respondents said that they would not be able to do their jobs as well without a Mac.
The survey also found that:
- 97% of respondents claim increased productivity
- 95% claim increased creativity
- 94% claim self-sufficiency with technology
- 91% claim increased collaboration
It certainly seems that enterprise users who switch from Windows to Mac are very happy with the move – which may cause real headaches for Microsoft in the future.
