Publicly-listed Macquarie Telecom has signed a deal with Apple to provide mobility solutions for mid-market enterprises.
Specifically, the deal will see MacTel offer iPhones and iPads and iOS apps for Australian businesses. The company plans to later move into delivering a device enrollment program integrated with Apple Business Manager, in order to streamline on-boarding for customers.
Ingram Micro will manage the hardware distribution for the company.
“This offering will help mid-sized businesses in Australia experience the power and value of Apple,” said Luke Clifton, group executive at Macquarie Telecom. “We’re backing the best devices for business coupled with native apps that will see our customers become more mobile, increase productivity and solve more business problems.”
“We’re aligning with the best technology providers to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” added Clifton.
Macquarie Telecom expects this deal to make its business mobility become a business-leading area of the company.
Apple devices are already available from Macquarie Telecom.
