“With Windows 10, our goal is to have the effect of the Gutenberg press on this next generation of computing, enabling 3D creativity, mixed reality, and eSports and game broadcasting for everyone,” says Terry Myerson, executive vice president, Windows and Devices Group.
“At our core, we believe each of us are creators,” Myerson writes on the Windows Blog. “However you choose to create, we are building Windows for each of you. We want to help you make your mark on the world and for Windows to be the place you love to create and play.”

With the competitiveness of the real estate industry, agents need to utilize current technology to give them a strategic edge. Real estate agents are constantly on the go showing properties and meeting with clients, so they need a reliable device that offers unified communications and messaging to keep everyone up to date. Why Are Realtors Using Surface Devices? Surface Pro 3 is a lightweight, versatile device that helps facilitate productive face-to-face conversations to address customer needs and cement new relationships. This device helps realtors deepen customer loyalty by providing features and tools that serve their customers in a timely and personal way.
The Surface Pro has been said to be one of the most productive devices for realtors. It brings together the best of the tablet and laptop while providing portable, fast, full HD display. Some realtors who have already adopted to Surface Pro said they loved Surface, as they realized they no longer needed their heavy laptops and their lighter but limited iPads.

10 Reasons Realtors Are Using Surface Devices

  1. Portability helps agents be productive anywhere by easily converting from a laptop to tablet when it’s time to head to a meeting or listing.
  2. Long and powerful battery life is reassuring for agents because they could work remotely longer without having to plug-in.
  3. Agents are able to pull up data instantly and effortlessly with Instant-on functionality. This makes it easier when researching property records and listings.
  4. Agents can open multiple documents side by side to show clients different listings or compare market analysis.
  5. Agents stay organized by using the pen to mark-up property listings and photos with drawings and notes. One click of your Pen opens OneNote3 so you can capture and sync your notes and doodles effortlessly.
  6. The Surface Pen is highly responsive and lets you write, draw, and sketch on a pressure-sensitive display. Agents utilize this feature when discussing goals with clients and could provide an interactive experience.
  7. Agents can be creative by utilizing the design apps to produce appealing property photos and listings.
  8. Agents can show information to clients anywhere for better customer acquisition and retention.
  9. Agents can Print or add storage with USB port and even collect signatures directly from the screen.
  10. Agents can keep clients satisfied by using cutting edge technology and a personalized experience so they’ll keep using you again and again.

All the things that make Microsoft Surface devices attractive to consumers — lightweight design, ability to use both touch and keyboard, the ease and familiarity of Windows — make them appealing to enterprise users as well. But devices used in the workplace must also meet enterprise requirements for internal network security, industry-specific software functionality, and manageability across a large and often widely distributed workforce. Today, Microsoft announced a new Surface Enterprise Initiative, kicking off with an expanded partnership with Dell to deliver premium Windows 10 devices and word-class services and support to enterprise customers.
Under the expanded partnership, Dell will sell Surface Pro 3 devices and accessories and offer service and support through its commercial sales organization, making it easier for businesses to deploy Surface devices as part of their enterprisewide hardware mix. Microsoft also plans to leverage our longstanding relationships with HP, Accenture and Avanade to enable more customers to enjoy the benefits of Windows 10.
Many enterprise customers have already deployed Surface across a wide range of industries including healthcare, banks and financial services, manufacturing and more. In the airline industry, Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa are adopting Surface devices to help eliminate the use of paper in cockpit procedures — particularly during takeoff and landing, when laptops cannot be used. Automotive sales company Infiniti retail group UK has streamlined the car-buying experience by using Surface devices for every step of the process, replacing everything from brochures to the sales desk and creating a unique retail experience.
The Surface Enterprise Initiative will make it easier for even more companies to ensure individual employees have exactly the right devices for the job. Retail sales associates can use Surface to suggest related purchases, order additional stock and close sales right on the showroom floor. Manufacturing plant managers can respond to email, document equipment inspections and update production forecasts from a single device. And financial executives can monitor client accounts and prepare audit reports, secure in the knowledge that their devices and apps comply with industry regulations.
