Big4.com, the premier social networking forum for professionals and alumni of Accenture, Andersen, BearingPoint, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers PwC reports that McGladrey LLP, the nation's fifth largest assurance, tax and accounting firm, has decided to roll out tablets to all 6,500 of its employees.
Big4.com reports that the company's executives recognized that equipping its employees with tablet computers could give them a sense of empowerment and, at the same time, enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of their work with clients. McGladrey turned to longtime service provider AT&T to take charge of staging and kitting the 6,500 tablets, which involved unwrapping the devices, testing them, loading a set of business applications, repackaging and applying asset tags to each device. AT&T accomplished all of this in just 12 days – exceeding McGladrey's initial target of two weeks
Big4.com also notes that AT&T trained McGladrey's service desk professionals to support deployment of the tablets going forward. Today, McGladrey's employees can receive assistance both by contacting the help desk and by accessing useful resources provided by AT&T on the company's intranet.
