UPGRADE THAT DESKTOP

You need tools that just work.


Windows 7 and Microsoft Office for small and mid-size organizations

It’s here—Windows® 7 has launched! And we’re eager to show you how the new features in Microsoft’s latest operating system can benefit your organization. When paired with Office, it’s even more powerful—your employees will immediately notice the difference. Windows 7 was specifically designed to provide core features essential to the needs of small and medium businesses like yours. So, too, the Microsoft® Office suite of productivity tools was designed to help your business run smarter, leaner and safer.

 

WORK THE WAY YOU WANT. Do you and your employees need your computers to work faster? Windows 7 is designed to be faster and more reliable than Windows XP SP1, and enables a wide variety of devices and applications, including many older applications for Windows XP. Windows 7 also makes it easier to solve PC problems quickly, and to share files and devices—whether you have a server or not.

HELP YOU GET MORE DONE. Do you and your employees spend a lot of time searching for files or working with each other? Windows 7 and Office make it easier than ever to find what you need quickly, and to work smarter and more intuitively. They also enable workers to be more productive at home or on the road, and to collaborate and share across boundaries.

HELP YOU SAFEGUARD YOUR WORK. Are you concerned whether your files are protected? Windows 7 has a strong security foundation, with features that help protect users and systems against malware and other forms of security threats. Plus, Office incorporates new features that defend the organization against spam, phishing, and the loss of intellectual property.

GIVE YOUR PEOPLE THE TOOLS TO HELP DRIVE BUSINESS SUCCESS. We recognize that your employees are your greatest asset. By empowering them with these products on their desktops, you can enhance overall business performance and reduce the time and cost of troubleshooting and resolving system issues. And now, with the release of Windows 7, there’s no better time to reduce costs and increase productivity by deploying these powerful Microsoft products.
