Today they have achieved one more with Ford’s decision to abandon BlackBerry and provide all its employees with iPhones . The well-known car brand is now in eighth place on the Fortune list.
This is what Bloomberg has reported, detailing that the change will come in phases. This year 3,300 employees will receive an iPhone and 6,000 more handsets will arrive over the next two years. The change is supported by the search for a mobile technology analyst to oversee all of this change.
For Ford, the iPhone meets the professional and personal needs of its employees in one device
Sara Tatchio, Ford’s spokesperson, said the switch to the iPhone ” covers all the needs of employees as it can be used for all professional needs safely as well as for our personal lives; all in one device “.
Obviously, this is a blow as positive for Apple as it is negative for the already weak BlackBerry , a company that cannot find its place despite the efforts it is making. And with this, there are now only nine Fortune 500 companies whose employees do not use iOS professionally. Tim Cook has a good reason today to raise a glass of champagne.
