Travelling across Canada to support Canadian businesses. With iPad.

Business Development Bank of Canada account managers love the ease and familiarity of iPadOS, and they love that meeting preparations that used to take 45 minutes now take under 10. Always on the move, they support small and medium-sized businesses across the country with loans, financial services and advisory help. Before making iPad an essential tool, they depended on legacy systems to help prep for meetings and carried important client information in paper form. By adopting Apple devices, they can use powerful custom apps to access client profiles instantly, quickly get loans approved, initiate service contracts, capture cheque images to pre‑approve payments and more.
