Industry-specific Apps Are Driving Next Generation of iPad Use

Customers Transform Business Processes with JAMF Software and iOS

MINNEAPOLIS – March 8, 2016 – JAMF Software, the leader in Apple device management, today announced they are seeing growth in strategic business use of iPads. With iOS devices in nearly all Fortune 500 and global 500 businesses, iPads managed by JAMF Software are being leveraged with iOS apps to transform business processes and transactions. The result is improved communications, streamlined transactions, and enhanced business processes for key industry verticals, resulting in improved customer connections and service.

“The popularity of mobile devices is nothing new. However, their uses have been predominately for communication, convenience, and personal productivity,” said Dean Hager, CEO JAMF Software. “As businesses look for greater competitive advantages, industry-specific iOS apps are a mechanism to transform business processes, making the largest impact when an app is leveraged to meet the customer where they are at. This is happening in retail, where salespeople are coming out from behind the counter, in healthcare where a doctor meets the patient, and in field services where the the office goes on the road.”

Reinforcing this trend, Apple's mobility partners are an ecosystem of mobile app providers working with Apple to deliver solutions that help organizations tap into the power of iPad and transform the way they run their businesses. With device management as the cornerstone for successful mobile app deployments, JAMF Software is serving as one of the Apple mobility partners working to deliver mobile solutions on the iPad.

Notable examples of JAMF Software customers transforming business processes with iPads and iOS apps include:

  • Counsyl, a health technology company offering DNA screening for men, women, and their children, empowers sales with iPads and the Showpad app to show rather than tell doctors how their technology predicts the probability of genetic disorders.
  • Via, an on-demand transit system that empowers its driver partners with iPads and a custom Via Driver Partner App to book multiple passengers heading in the same direction into a shared vehicle.

  • Useful Systems, a software company building genuinely useful apps, supplies field service companies with an iPad mini and access to the Useful app. This mobile-first job management platform provides tools and data that help field service companies run their businesses smarter.
  • Herregan Distributors, Inc., one of the largest flooring distributors in the United States serving over 3,500 dealers, uses iPads in lieu of massive paper binders to check inventory levels, create orders, and share files from the road.
