Deploying the Latest Version of iPad Pro to the Enterprise: Cost Calculations

For this post I’m going to teach you how to deploy the latest version of the iPad pro in the least number of steps and the way that I see easiest. The version we will be deploying is the Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch 64GB model in Space Grey. Going about purchasing these is easy. You have a few options ranging from calling apple, visiting the apple website or buying from a 3rd party like Best Buy. What I see as easiest is buying from the apple website, it’s easy to use and it’s a quick checkout. Projected cost of the 57 iPad Pros will be about $37,000 before taxes. They do offer a bulk buy discount which is about 8% so that 37,000 is only about $34,000 before taxes. There are no shipping costs from the Apple website either so that’s a nice little bonus as well. The shipping usually takes anywhere from 2 days to a week. For a big order like this one I would assume it’ll take about a week so be prepared to wait. Employees will probably ask if this will be replacing their laptops/pc’s. The simple answer is no. The iPad is a tool for mobile work and for use in meets, projects etc. When you don’t feel like lugging around your laptop just use the iPad. So, after ordering the iPads send out a quick email explaining that these are not replacements for your computers and is another tool to complete your work better. Now on to apps that make these iPads useful for business and the whole reason you’re buying them. First...
