Finance firms embrace iPad as business tool - Good Technology

16 November 2010  |  11314 views  |  0 biometric  eye

The financial services sector has embraced Apple's iPad as a business tool far more readily than any other industry, according to research from Good Technology.

Good, a provider of corporate mobility technology, says analysis of over 4000 of its enterprise customers shows that 36.8% of all its iPad activations to date have come from the financial services world.

This is well ahead of the second placed technology sector, which accounts for 11.4%, and third placed healthcare at 10.5%.

John Herrema, SVP, corporate strategy, Good Technology, says: "We believe these industries are embracing the iPad because its unique design makes it easier to perform time-sensitive, mission-critical tasks."

Financial firms have also been quick to introduce iPad apps, with a steady stream of roll outs in recent months. Yesterday JP Morgan unveiled its research offering for the device, following in the footsteps of BM&FBovespa, FfastFill, Thomson Reuters, BNP Paribas Securities and Credit Suisse, among others.
