Apple is hoping to boost its presence in the enterprise by working more closely with Unisys, according to reports.
The companies are already collaborating on plans and sales tactics that could see Apple products finding more favour among enterprise users, thanks to increased levels of support.
The arrangement, in which Unisys will offer maintenance and support services to buyers of Apple products, was confirmed in an article on Business Week.
"[Most] organisations are still pretty heavily PC-based," said Gene Zapfel, a managing partner at Unisys. "Apple is going to crack the nut and clients are going to start buying a lot more."
Neither company would confirm the report when contacted by V3.co.uk.
Apple did not break out any specific enterprise sales numbers in its financial results released last week, but did reveal that sales of Mac computers and iPhones are increasing.
"We are blown away to report over $20bn [£12bn] in revenue and over $4bn [£2.5bn] in after-tax earnings, both all-time records for Apple," said chief executive Steve Jobs.
"IPhone sales of 14.1 million were up 91 per cent year over year."
Apple sold 3.89 million Macs during the quarter, a 27 per cent increase over the same period last year.
Presumably, the company is hoping to continue this growth in the largely untapped enterprise market.
