So how do you collaborate when your team, partners and customers aren’t able to meet in a single room to brainstorm the next big thing? For many businesses large and small the answer to that question has been the Microsoft Surface Hub, part whiteboard, touch screen and super computer the Hub is the future of collaboration for today’s work force.

The potential of what the Surface Hub can help companies achieve is one of the reasons why LiftForward is excited to partner with Microsoft in making it affordable for companies large and small to work together no matter where they are. To date Microsoft has sold thousands of Hub’s to companies all over the world but with a price tag of $8,999 for the 55-inch and $21,999 for the 84-inch version it’s a serious expense for any I.T. budget.

With Surface Plus for Business companies can work, collaborate and innovate on the latest technology like the Hub for a low monthly price. Companies that really want to wow their clients can get an 84-inch Hub for $744.39 a month for 36 months, or if you have a bit less wall space the 55-inch could be the perfect size for your next meeting and the perfect price at $303.72 a month when selecting a 36-month term. Both options come with Microsoft’s Microsoft Complete for Business with Accidental Damage Protection warranty and in-store support and training ensuring that you get the help you need when you need it. The flexibility that the program offers businesses, schools and government entities is one of the key driving factors behind it’s early success and the increased adoption of the Microsoft Hub by teams all over.

A recent study from Forrester Consulting for Microsoft found that the Hub helped companies save time, money and increase sales with an ROI of 138%. Impressive numbers but not nearly as impressive as the device itself in person or it’s affordable monthly price through Surface Plus for Business. Whether it’s a company brainstorming next year’s product launch or a government agency discussing upcoming zoning changes anyone can use the Hub to have more productive and collaborative meetings.
