We’ve returned from a wonderful summer break to the news that Microsoft—Copilot has officially landed in New Zealand, promising to revolutionise the way we interact with the Microsoft Suite.

Microsoft Copilot isn’t just another tool; it’s a leap forward in artificial intelligence, designed to seamlessly integrate with the Microsoft applications you use every day, such as Teams, SharePoint, and Outlook. This advanced AI harnesses the power of large language models to understand context, automate routine tasks, and provide intelligent suggestions, transforming your workflow into something more efficient, more intuitive, and simply smarter.

The Game-Changer for Office Productivity

Imagine summarising lengthy emails in seconds, drafting comprehensive reports without typing a word, or analysing complex datasets with ease —Copilot makes this all possible.

As extensive Microsoft Teams users we’re particularly excited about Copilots ability to summarise meetings, identify unresolved issues and list clear actions.  It really is like having an assistant who’s well-versed in your business needs, available 24/7 but this isn’t just about working faster; it’s about working smarter, unleashing creativity, and making informed decisions with confidence.

Fee or investment?

Microsoft 365 Copilot is available on an annual commitment, paid yearly – which is unusual for Microsoft however we believe this will be a deliberate strategy to slow the adoption of the tool and to try to ensure that users make a concerted effort to maximise their understanding of the new technology. The annual fee per licence is currently $582+G.S.T.

Our team has embraced Copilot with “cautious enthusiasm”, exploring its vast capabilities to ensure we can guide you in leveraging its full potential. Our initial experiences confirm that the benefits, especially for those deeply integrated into the M365 environment, are substantial. The initial investment is quickly offset by the leaps in productivity it promises.
