In today’s fast-paced and technology-driven world, customers expect businesses to be more agile, efficient and effective than ever.
Otherwise, they choose a competitor.
So, to meet evolving customer demands and keep up to date with the rapid advancements in technology, you must revolutionise how your business operates and equip your employees with the tools they need to become more productive, innovative and successful in their roles.
Fortunately, this is where Microsoft 365 Copilot (M365 Copilot or Copilot) can make a positive difference.
Microsoft 365 Copilot is an innovative solution that harnesses the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automate tasks, streamline business processes and manage workloads.
Let’s delve into how Microsoft 365 Copilot works and the ways it can benefit your business.
About Microsoft 365 Copilot
Microsoft 365 Copilot is a cutting-edge tool that leverages the capabilities of large language models (LLMs), machine learning and AI technology to help you become more productive and efficient when working with Microsoft 365 products.
Designed to function as a virtual IT assistant, Microsoft 365 Copilot empowers your teams to work faster,
smarter and more effectively.
There are two ways you can take advantage of Microsoft 365 Copilot to create more internal efficiencies for your business:
- Using Copilot as an embedded feature in Microsoft 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, Microsoft Graph and more
By simply clicking on the Copilot icon located in your toolbar, you can start typing prompts or speaking commands, which in turn enables Copilot to carry out specific tasks within these apps on your behalf.
For instance, you can ask it to craft a presentation in PowerPoint using the ideas you’ve provided. Copilot can also list the key points you’ve discussed in your Teams discussion. You can even instruct CoPilot to draw out trends and forecasts from your figures in Excel.
- Using Copilot through a standalone app, Business Chat
Business Chat is an app that you can access from the Windows Start menu. It works seamlessly across LLMs, your Microsoft 365 apps and your own data (calendar, emails, chats, documents, meetings and contacts), providing you with accurate responses to your queries and delivering personalised assistance to help you complete tasks.
With natural language prompts, Business Chat enables you to optimise Copilot for scheduling meetings, sending emails, providing updates and generating content for your business.
