Consolidate technology

to streamline and connect the manufacturing frontline

Consolidate technology to streamline work, increase productivity and connect your frontline.

Microsoft Surface allows you to consolidate multiple devices into one premium, fit-for-purpose tool. Reduce manual processes, connect your teams to troubleshoot and collaborate, and reduce overheads with greater efficiency.

Ultimately, Surface is about:
  • Autopilot means zero-touch deployment of ready-to-use devices, while Intune Cloud Management enables IT to manage and maintain devices securely from anywhere.
  • Consolidating multiple devices and platforms reduces ongoing IT operations costs by 16.1% and time to configure and deploy each surface device by 17.1%.²
  • Consolidating tools into one device reduces the amount of tech across an organisation, leading to cost reduction, time saved and a smaller, more consistent fleet to manage.
  • Role-based access and chip-to-cloud security ensures data – from corporate information through to customer records – remains both accessible and protected at all times.
  • One reliable, multi-dimensional and adaptive device (with pen, voice, camera, full typing capability, and durable and rugged cases) automates manual processes, streamlines workflows, and makes roles more enjoyable and productive.
  • Dynamics-enabled devices in the hands of frontline workers provides access to vital information, and communication with managers for real-time problem-solving, speeding up decision making and increasing the flow of information.

"Workers using Surface devices are 77% more productive thanks to accessing meetings from anywhere, while 61% report completing daily business processes faster.”¹
  • The ability for Managers and IT staff to liaise and troubleshoot with workers and Executives means smoother business processes from the top down, reducing downtime and ensuring any issues are resolved promptly.
  • A happy, productive workplace helps to retain and upskill existing workers, while attracting new talent into the fold. Better connect and support employees to see a more engaged workplace, and increase the ability to attract and retain new talent.
"92% of employees who are happy with their work tech-stack say it affects their job satisfaction for the better".²
  • Democratising devices means a more accessible, inclusive and sustainable workplace. Increase inclusivity with language and accessibility features, while reducing paper usage to create a more sustainable workplace.
"86% of companies using Microsoft 365-powered Surface devices report successfully improving their employee experience."¹
