How Apple Technology Drives Appogee’s Remote Workforce to Stay Connected, Collaborative, and Productive
Apple Technology helps Appogee work from anywhere. Appogee has always offered flexible schedules for our employees to get their work done from anywhere, with Apple technology it is possible for work to be done from anywhere easily. On their first day of work each Appogee employee is outfitted with Apple Tech (one of the many perks of working with Appogee). This includes:
A Macbook of their choice
With these devices our have everything they need to get the job done no matter where they are working.
The combination of iPad and Mac allows our inside reps to be just as productive as if they are traveling or working from as if they were sitting down at their desk with a work setup. With sidecar they can use their iPad as a second monitor and have the extra screen real estate to get the job done. Using Handoff employees can easily start tasks on their mac and finish them on the go with iPad or iPhone all without skipping a beat. Airpods are a match made in heaven with any Apple device and seamlessly switch between all the devices allowing you to be listening to a webinar one moment to taking a call the next all without lifting a finger. This is a huge lifesaver when working in a public space. iPhone, of course, ties everything together keeping employees connected with our clients and connected to each other. Only using Apple Hardware allow us to keep employees as productive in the field or at home as they are in the office.
“My Macbook pro is a workhorse. Switching between desktops I can simulate the same experience you would have with three different monitors while I am sitting in a coffee shop between meetings”
-Ely Lewin, National Account Executive
Further simplifying the process Appogee uses an MDM solution to manage all devices so not only do our employees devices easily connect to each other the also connect to all of our other systems. On their first day of work when an Appogee employee first gets their Macbook, iPad and iPhone their entire setup is limited to one step.
Turn on the device.
After that everything downloads and connects. No installing third party apps. No logging into different WiFi networks. No stress. This has cut down employee onboarding time by days, not only saving money, but also allows us to train and onboard remotely.
“When I started at Appogee everything was set and ready for me to start meaningful work on day one. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to make an impact at the company.”
-Megan Tomlinsinson, Project Coordinator
Are you worried that your company doesn’t have the resources to enable a remote work force? Apple technology comes with all the software you need to get started out of the box:
-Set up groups and send real-time updates with Messages on iPhone, iPad, and Mac
-Pages, Numbers, and Keynote come with Apple devices and allow employees to collaborate in real time on iCloud or with Box. Learn how to collaborate in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.
-Use Apple Business Manager to configure device settings, buy and distribute content, and deploy new devices to employees.
As Apogee’s cofounder Tim has said, “communication solves 99% of the world’s problems.” Whether we are working down the hall or across the country from each other with the help of Apple Technology we could continue to work together.
