Is Microsoft Copilot Your New AI Assistant?

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about generative AI, which is technology that can create text, images, music, video, and so much more from simple prompts. It has the potential to become one of the most game-changing business tools ever invented. The promise is huge. But if you’re like most people, you’re still unclear exactly where, when, why, and how generative AI fits into your business.

Microsoft now has an answer. And if you’re a Microsoft 365 user, amazing generative AI tools are already available to you.

We’re here to explain everything you need to hit the ground running.

Introducing Microsoft Copilot

The primary apps in the Microsoft 365 suite – Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams – can now incorporate a generative AI assistant called Copilot. The tool works a little differently in each app but draws from the same pool of data, called a large language model (LLM), as well as your company’s own data.

Users interact with Copilot by asking in natural language for it to generate something specific. That means it has limitless applications and endless abilities, but here are some use cases to illustrate what makes Copilot so exciting:

  • Copilot in Word – Ask Copilot to write a first draft of a document for you to edit yourself, saving you tons of time and making writer’s block nonexistent.
  • Copilot in Excel – Tell Copilot to find trends and anomalies hidden in your data, or request that it create impressive visualizations in an instant.
  • Copilot in PowerPoint – Inform Copilot what you want to create a presentation about and what data to include and let the AI build it for you.
  • Copilot in Outlook – Solicit Copilot to summarize the key points from a long email threat or draft a reply email that includes certain details and tone of voice.
  • Copilot in Teams – Lean on Copilot to take notes during your meetings, identify key points for further discussion, and highlight action items so nothing gets missed.

These are just a few of countless examples of how Copilot, working alongside the Microsoft apps you already know and use daily, can increase productivity, efficiency, insight, morale and much more. Most of the work that people hate doing can now be automated.

Plus, unlike other AI assistants on the market, including popular options like ChatGPT, Microsoft won’t save and store your data to train the AI, and the company will accept responsibility if you ever face plagiarism or copyright issues because of something created by Copilot.


Getting Started With Microsoft Copilot

For the fastest, easiest, and most affordable way to take advantage of all that generative AI has to offer, Microsoft Copilot can’t be beat. It has the backing of a tech giant known for developing some of the best business software of all time. Plus, the tools you already use have the AI built in. You just need to activate it.

Doing that involves paying a monthly subscription for each user you want to have access to Copilot in their Microsoft 365 apps. Users will also need some training and time before they can master all that Copilot can do.

In exchange for that investment, you can expect each user to gain at least four extra hours of productivity each month according to one study, and they can complete tasks 55% faster according to another study. The ROI looks compelling. And since Copilot is still in its infancy, and new use cases are emerging all the time, the return will only keep growing.

The business case for Copilot is clear and compelling, which only leaves the technical aspects to work out. That’s where we come in.
