Many businesses outsource all of their IT needs to us.  Others engage us for specific projects or for assistance on an "as-needed" basis. For your business or enterprise, the choice of BFA's IT service delivery option is up to you.  We don't choose; we simply make your choice a reality.  


Business Trends:  Employee Choice

 

 

Whether you're currently using Mac® or are considering it for your organization, you might not be aware of the enormous momentum of a movement that's come to be known as "employee choice". This open viewpoint of compute platforms is being adopted by businesses - and most especially enterprises - in order to better ensure employee satisfaction and happiness. As a result, more and more organizations are - for the first time - allowing the choice of the Apple® Macintosh platform for their employees; and the results have been staggering!

 

From increasing employee retention to better attracting new, top new talent, "employee choice" has positioned itself as a critical asset. Empowering the employee with the flexibility to choose their preferred platform has literately become a competitive advantage.  And did we mention cost savings?  IBM touts a $273 to $543 savings for every Macintosh (vs. a similar Windows device) on a TCO over a 4 year period. 

 

Continually, the overwhelming employee choice is:  MacOS®
