There are many reasons corporations are using Macintosh: easy of use, longer lifecycle management, improved security, and the unique ability to run Windows and Macintosh software on a single computer are making a big impact in the boardroom.

You may think that Macintosh is being solely deployed in big corporations like Google, Facebook, or Twitter. The fact is Macintosh is gaining ground is small and large businesses alike.

Here are three unique industries taking advantage of Macintosh in the workplace:

Law Enforcement Agencies: Computer forensics is becoming a more disciplined technology focus for law enforcement. Agencies benefit from running Windows and Macintosh software on the same computer. Specialized applications such as Mac Marshal and P2P Marshal are providing the tools detectives need in the field to extract evidence from electronic devices.

Dental Practices: In the dental industry, the Windows platform has been the de facto technology used in most practices. This is rapidly changing for two reasons, the ability to run Windows on a Macintosh and the availability of new dental software suites. Practices are benefitting from better reliability, less malware, and award winning Apple support options.

Dr. Todd Welch comments that, “In my opinion, Apple computers are made better, safer, more reliable, and look absolutely gorgeous in a dental office.”

Hospitality: Modern hotels are using Macintosh to provide a seamless experience for staff and guests. Macintosh based systems keep track of reservations, check-ins, check-outs, kiosks, and digital signage. Guests can enjoy digital check-ins, weather reports, nightlife information, appointment reminders, and internet access.

“Our guests appreciate the ability to check email, surf the web and print their documents right in the lobby where they can also socialize with colleagues and friends and order food and drink,” noted Tom Smith, VP of Rooms Operations for North America for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts.

Better reliability, software compatibility, and ease of use are just a few reasons companies choose Macintosh for their technology needs. The good news is that you do not have to go it alone.
