Apple has announced a new App Store volume-purchasing plan for its business customers. The new service, which should be available soon, will allow businesses and education institutions in the U.S. to purchase apps in volume and distribute them within their organizations. According to Apple’s new volume purchasing website:
Whether you’re providing apps to two employees or ten thousand, the Volume Purchase Program makes it simple to find, buy, and distribute the apps your business needs. The Volume Purchase Program also provides a way to purchase custom B2B apps built by third-party developers to meet the unique needs of your business. The Volume Purchase Program for Business is coming soon to businesses in the United States.To begin the enrollment process, customers are asked to provide a Dun & Bradstreet (D-U-N-S) number, plus contact information such as a business phone number, address, and email address. It is great seeing Apple respond to the growing app demands in businesses and at educational institutions. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
