Microsoft’s tablet PC has come of age. Tarsus Distribution reseller Velocity Group, headed by CEO Jonathan Kropf, has been a champion for Microsoft’s Surface technology for some time. Kropf says IT departments simply cannot get enough of Surface. We wanted to find out more about why.

“Work is no longer a place you go, but something you do,” says Kropf. “It’s vital to have a device that delivers ultimate mobility so that you can stay connected and productive wherever you go. To limit distractions, the Microsoft Your Phone app, syncs notifications, text messages, and photos between your smartphone and device, so no matter where you work with your Surface, you’re always connected, and the range of intelligent features and accessories keep you productive and free of interruptions.”


Proven productivity and efficiency 

Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study to examine the financial impact and potential return on investment (ROI) companies may realise by implementing Microsoft 365 for enterprise on Microsoft Surface devices. The study looks closely at how Surface devices augment and compound the business benefits of Microsoft 365.

The Forrester Consulting TEI study found that by switching to Surface devices, end users become more productive due to simplified collaboration and device interfaces. They realised benefits to IT efficiency because of simplified device deployment and management, and gained overall business cost savings thanks to enhanced security and device consolidation, making it a sensible option for IT departments.


Fast deployment 

Microsoft Windows Autopilot has changed the way new devices get deployed. “Users simply take the device out of the box, turn it on and Windows Autopilot configures it from the cloud, making it business-ready quickly and easily, and you can keep track of the process while its happening,” Kropf says. 


Modernised security 

It’s more important than ever to protect your organisation’s endpoint devices, securing data and systems wherever they are. “Surface devices offer proactive defences with security built in and managed through the cloud wherever users decided to work,” Kropf adds. Security protections are built into every layer of a Surface device.” 

“The Surface range of products is not only cool in terms of the technology, but is also beautifully designed, and looks and feels like a high-end product. “It’s an aspirational range of devices, featuring premium finishes for people who appreciate good-looking tech,” he says. 

Fast performance and valuable professional features also mean it is becoming a favourite among CFOs and CEOs, making it an attractive option for demanding business users too.

Surface devices come with a one-year hardware warranty and 90 days of technical support. In addition to the standard warranty, users have the option to purchase extended protection for their Surface device.
