Apple’s iPad has broken into yet another enterprise sector, this time the insurance industry with internationally-known insurer, Lloyds, working with brokers to test use of the Apple device in its underwriting room.
The trial began this month and will see iPads used instead of the more traditional underwriting slips. Brokers, Marsh, Cooper Gay and RK Harrison Group are testing the Apple devices.
Its hard to think of a more blue chip name than Lloyds of London when it comes to international financial institutions. This news is further evidence that the iPad is already having far more impact in the enterprise arena than anyone (except maybe Steve Jobs and a few other Apple execs) expected.
