blog It’s raining iPads at retail giant Woolworths, according to an article this morning by The Australian newspaper, which details the company’s plans to deploy the Apple tablets to some 890 store managers nationwide. The newspaper reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
“Woolworths, whose normal role is feeding its supermarket customers, last week fed its 890 store managers a technology diet. It gave them each an iPad.”
The news comes as interest in corporate and educational deployments of the Apple tablets continues to run high in Australia. Several weeks ago, for example, it was revealed that independent Melbourne school Haileybury had already rolled out 1,000 iPads to staff members and students throughout its three campuses in the Victorian capital and may roll out several thousand more as it attempts to take advantage of the Apple technology in education. In addition, Qantas recently announced a partnership with Telstra which will see 2,200 iPads deployed to pilots to replace paper documentation.
