Windows 11 and Microsoft Surface: Helping businesses grow

Five ways the two fit perfectly together

Finding the combination of devices and operating systems that work in harmony is not something that IT can take for granted.

Today’s workforce needs the flexibility to be productive from anywhere. But flexible BYOD policies can create headaches for enterprise IT teams. Different hardware and operating systems make it difficult to consistently manage and update devices and software, creating security vulnerabilities that increase the risk of cyberattacks. Reducing complexity and risk requires a fresh approach to device management.

This article outlines five ways Windows 11 and Surface do just that to enable the most productive environment possible for your users.

Detect different modes

Hybrid working is all about flexibility. Surface is able to automatically transition to different modes depending on how the device is held or being used. As a laptop, users can see screens in desktop view to balance tasks, calls and other collaborative tasks. In tablet mode, users can efficiently sign contracts online or juggle tasks on the go in portrait mode.

Enhance user experience

Cool devices and slick software integrations create a better energy among staff, and the Surface with Windows 11 combination unlocks a slick user experience. One of these is the Surface Slim Pen 2, which provides the user with the feeling of traditional pen and paper. For rapid note taking during an appointment or important meeting, this can be a lot quicker for many users than typing or even dictating.

Slick touchpad

One of the main bugbears that can slow users down is an unresponsive touchpad or clunky keyboard. With Microsoft Surface, your users benefit from leading-edge Precision Haptic touchpad that works hand-to-glove with Windows 11 requirements. With this and the Surface devices’ unique Pro Signature Keyboard, users can work with speed to produce optimal results such as rapid typing and navigation.

Multitasking and productivity

Multitasking is a divisive topic when it comes to productivity, but the Surface devices enable users to swiftly switch between work, home administration, leisure and education from the same place. In addition to running multiple desktop windows simultaneously, Windows 11 also remembers the common apps users use for easy retrieval.

Personalised devices

Although users all have some common needs, there are also groups of users or business functions with particular requirements. From design teams’ higher intensity compute to sales teams’ need to work on the go, tailor-made experiences are essential in the modern workspace.

While features such as voice, speech services, and voice-activated typing won’t be for everyone, the feature-rich experience of Windows 11 and Surface gives the options any modern business needs. Optimised taskbars also provide slick navigation, while a package of accessories such as microphones, immersive sound, and a sharp display experience creates the all-around package.
