The Surface lineup rounds up a strong portfolio of Microsoft devices that will allow users to unleash their creativity through new Windows 10 Fall Creators Update features, but also to empower every individual to be productive on their own terms.
“Since the launch of Surface Pro in Thailand, we have been receiving feedback from our consumers that they are looking for different forms of Windows devices to suit their varying needs. Today, we are excited to be bringing an expanded lineup of Surface devices, which brings an ultimate computing experience with the combination of power and portability, and will inspire users to bring a new level of creativity to their work.” Mrs. Chanikarn Pronanun, Marketing & Operations Director, Microsoft Thailand
“When digital innovations began exerting a genuine influence on the business world, we saw the opportunity to introduce and integrate new technologies to empower our business. In developing business strategies and products for the digital era, we have to ensure that our people are accustomed to the technology first. This is why we actively support BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) – a practice that allows employees to bring their personal devices to work – by providing help in selecting the most suitable device for productivity, both in terms of creativity and performance. Currently, our employees use more than 70 Surface devices to facilitate mobile productivity. With their expansive feature set and excellent design, Surface devices are not only portable and easy to use as they also improve the image of our employees, while they get to work well without carrying as many devices as before,” said Mr. Woottichai Jaroenpol, Executive Vice President of Information Technology “KTC” or Krungthai Card Public Company Limited.
