The Total Economic Impact of Mac in Business

The devices you choose to utilise within your organisation are just one key aspect to consider when scaling your business, but the impact of this decision can have long-term effects for the good. From cost savings to an increase in productivity, and optimised workflows, Mac can support your business in more ways than one.

By choosing Mac, your business can benefit from the best possible outcomes, including positive financial and company culture impacts.

What is Total Economic Impact?

Total Economic Impact, or TEI, is a comprehensive analysis of the impact of an investment, in comparison to an initial investment from the business.
Essentially, this calculates how “worth it” an investment is – and can be a useful tool in predicting the outcome of a deployment.
When calculating the Total Economic Impact of Mac in your business, it is important to consider:

Employee Impact

Ensuring that employees have access to tools
that allow them to work at their best is key to
maintaining a productive work environment.

Financial Impact

From purchase to renewal, Apple devices retain their residual value throughout the entire lifecycle, resulting in potential cost savings for your business.

Security Impact

Security breaches cost businesses time and money.
By having the tools in place to mitigate the risk of cyber attacks, your business can avoid unnecessary costs.

What is the Total Economic Impact of Mac?

Return on investment does not necessarily refer to the financial impact of a device deployment. It also includes returns from the cultural impact on staff, such as employee retention, productivity gains, cost savings, and cybersecurity.

Businesses integrating Mac into their workflows can see the impact in a wide variety of ways, from employee retention, to productivity, and even cyber security.

Increasing Employee Retention

Siemens found an 80% increase in employee satisfaction following their adoption of Mac in their workflows.1 Employee satisfaction is a key component in improving staff retention, which can result in reduced recruitment and training expenses.

When the average cost of turnover for an employee earning £25,000 p/a or over is £30,614, it is more important than ever to ensure that staff retention is a priority within your organisation.2

Amplifying Productivity for Your Team

Mac users often experience less downtime on their devices, leading to increased employee productivity and potential cost savings. 

When devices are running smoothly, you save time for everyone from the end-user to your IT team. That’s time your organisation could use for more important tasks and has the potential to increase your team’s output.

Unlocking Cost Savings

Apple devices have a higher residual value than other alternatives. When considering that there is always more to the cost of a device than the purchase price, it is important to consider the longevity of your chosen device’s lifecycle.

We work with Apple Financial Services to ensure that every business is able to find a solution that suits their needs and allows their business to scale and thrive.
