What is Microsoft Copilot?

Copilot is comprised of a suite of services which empower content and app creation, data analysis, customer engagements and business functions. This is made possible by connecting your organisation to large language models (ChatGPT), referencing your internal data, integration to Microsoft applications and 3rd party functions such as CRM and company websites.  Copilot can help every type of user within an organisation to achieve something new, or, significantly shorten the amount of time typically associated to daily tasks.

What Microsoft applications does Copilot integrate with?

Examples of Copilot in use.

Microsoft Word

Use Copilot prompts to generate content from scratch, then, amend wording to be more/less formal, expand content or make it more concise. Copilot also learns from your feedback, preferences and adapts to your writing style and voice. Once created, Copilot can then take the content and turn it into a PowerPoint presentation.

Microsoft Excel

Create, Edit and Understand. Users can interrogate spreadsheets to look for trends, transform raw data into charts for ease of view or create spreadsheets from scratch by interrogating data within your files or applications such as CRM. Complex formulas can be hard to generate without the right knowledge, leverage Copilot prompts to achieve this within a fraction of the time.

Microsoft Teams

Your meetings and phone calls will never be the same. Leverage Copilot within Teams to bring you up to speed if arriving late, summarise key action points against participants, gauge the mood and automate note generation by transposing content into a Microsoft application of your choice. Combine with features include live captions and transcription for a truly modern meeting standard.

Process Automation

Working in conjunction with Power Automate, Co-pilot can automate daily tasks to free up time, reduce human error and provide a better customer experience. A prompt-based guide is used, allowing users to instruct Copilot on what they want to achieve. Backend connectors are then generated to link required applications, users and data sets. On completion, Copilot can create documentation related to the process and inform relevant users of availability
