Apple iPad 4 Screen

Barclays Bank is about to deploy 8,500 iPads into its offices and, according to The Channel, it could be the largest deployment of tablets into the UK financial sector ever. It appears that Barclays employees had been asking for the firm to begin offering the tablet. A company spokeswoman told The Channel that the iPads will help “assist our branch colleagues to interact with customers, improving the customer experience.” She also noted that Barclays considered several other tablets but decided that Apple’s product was “the best solution” for the company’s needs. The tablets are being deployed in Barclays branches throughout the UK now.
