The key objectives of our Vodafone Global Enterprise tablet trial – establishing profiles of user behaviour, testing the lifecycle approach and understanding likely spending patterns.

Our Tablet Trial was based on a three month placement of 105 units of the market-dominant iPad with Vodafone Global Enterprise employees. The research had the following objectives:

  • Establish the profile of users for whom tablets add most business value
  • Identify areas of complexity when managing the enterprise tablet lifecycle
  • Inform knowledge of network usage and likely spending patterns
