Microsoft Copilot releases for small and medium businesses

We are thrilled to announce groundbreaking developments in the realm of productivity enhancement, thanks to Microsoft’s revolutionary new tool: Microsoft 365 Copilot, powered by generative artificial intelligence (AI) and large language models (LLM), is set to redefine how you interact with Microsoft 365 apps.

Copilot is no longer exclusive to large enterprises. Small and medium-sized businesses can now harness the power of Copilot for Microsoft 365, tailoring its capabilities to their specific needs.

Picture this: within Word or Outlook, Copilot acts as your creative partner, helping you to swiftly compose or edit text on any given topic. A simple prompt, a reference to corporate documents, and a click of “go” can transform your meeting notes into a polished product proposal. Meanwhile, in PowerPoint, Copilot takes centre stage by autonomously crafting entire presentations, including both text and images, based on the content in other documents. Excel users, rejoice! Copilot is not just a grammar whiz; it can create complex formulas, analyse data sets, and pinpoint trends.

In every instance, Copilot respects your authority. You remain the pilot, with the ability to review and adjust content, or request Copilot to generate a different version altogether. Whether it’s summarising Teams chat threads, Team calls, or emails, Copilot steps up to the plate to providing real-time summaries and insights, revolutionising the way you handle communication.

User feedback paints a vivid picture of Copilot’s impact on productivity and creativity. According to one survey, 86% of users found Copilot to enhance productivity, with 81% reporting quicker task completion. An overwhelming 89% acknowledged Copilot’s role in jump-starting the creative process, while 78% believed it improved the overall quality of their work. Notably, 84% expressed their reluctance to revert to working without Copilot.

The benefits extend beyond efficiency gains. Copilot manages to reduce time spent on less enjoyable tasks, with 76% noting a decrease in mental effort on mundane activities and 71% saving time on information searches.

Copilot is reaching new milestones, with over 5 billion chats and 5 billion images processed to date. To cater to power users and enhance the Copilot experience, Microsoft introduces Copilot Pro—a premium subscription offering advanced features such as access to the latest models, including GPT-4 Turbo, and the ability to create customized Copilot GPTs.

Microsoft 365 Copilot is more than just a tool; it’s a catalyst for transforming the way we work and interact with technology. As a managed services provider, we are excited to share this news, confident that Copilot will be a game-changer for individuals and organisations alike. Stay tuned over the coming weeks and months, as we help you prepare your business to leverage the power of AI in the workplace, and embrace the future of productivity with Copilot.
