Joint Venture emphasizes enterprise set up, configuration, and support, PC Mag reports. The small business program offers the tagline: "Get Setup. Get Trained. Keep Running." Joint Venture customers will get features like three group training sessions, personal setup data transfer, and a scheduling website for phone support. The plan also offers features like priority service at Genius Bars, corporate tech support and loaner computers in the case of repairs over 24 hours.
Apple small business is set to launch Joint Venture on March 2 in the U.S. and March 3 in the U.K., according to sources. They are also launching the second-generation iPad, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
