Microsoft is gearing up to release its new generative AI work assistant, Copilot, for millions of enterprise customers. Chief Information Officers (CIOs) are currently undergoing training to ensure a smooth transition as Microsoft 365 prepares to introduce this innovative tool.
Copilot utilizes generative AI technology to tackle various tasks, including summarizing emails, drafting responses, and creating presentations. Additionally, this AI assistant can attend meetings, providing users with detailed summaries, logging attendees, and flagging action items.
With more than one million U.S. companies already utilizing Microsoft 365, this means that a substantial number of organizations will have access to Copilot. To further aid users who require assistance with Copilot, Microsoft has launched Microsoft 365 Chat, which leverages AI powered by ChatGPT.
The broader launch of Copilot will extend its reach to a larger portion of Microsoft’s extensive user base. This move aligns with Microsoft’s significant commitment to integrating ChatGPT into its range of Office products, as part of an exciting deal with Open AI.
It is important to note that Copilot is not offered as a free service. Enterprise customers will need to pay a monthly fee of $30 per user for access to this groundbreaking AI assistant. This pricing model ensures that Microsoft’s enterprise clients receive high-quality assistance that meets their specific needs.
Microsoft’s introduction of Copilot may bring back memories for some long-time users. From 1997 to 2007, Microsoft had another digital assistant called Clippy. However, Copilot represents a significant leap forward in intelligent technology, offering more advanced capabilities and a more seamless user experience.
As Microsoft 365 prepares to unleash Copilot, it is clear that the company is committed to enhancing productivity and efficiency for enterprise customers through the power of AI.
