Barclays Orders 8,500 iPads

Posted Nov 23, 2012

Barclays, one of the largest banks in the United Kingdom, has ordered 8,500 iPads for their network of branches.  This order is believed to be the largest single order placed in the U.K.

Barclays said that they reviewed other tablet options, but decided on the iPad since employees insisted on it.

Barclays wants to use an app called “Mortgage Brain,” which was developed by a bank consortium and will allow branch employees to better serve their customers.
