Microsoft Surface for Business devices now available through BUI

We’re excited to offer two powerful devices from Microsoft’s award-winning Surface range to the South African market. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 for Business and the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 for Business are designed for the modern workplace, with built-in security from chip to cloud.

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that it would address the growing demand for Surface products in South Africa. In July, the company confirmed that the Surface Laptop 3 and the Surface Pro 7 would be sold locally.

“As with previous Surface devices, we have delivered best-in-class upgrades for our new additions to the family, to ensure that individuals and organisations have access to the optimal performance they need to achieve more in the office, classroom, or out in the field,” explained Vithesh Reddy (Consumer and Channel Marketing Director, Microsoft South Africa) at the time.

The Surface Laptop 3 and the Surface Pro 7 are now available to consumers via selected retailers, and to commercial organisations via selected partners. BUI is proud to be an authorised Surface reseller in SA, and to provide business editions of both models to enterprises nationwide.

“Microsoft has put security and performance at the heart of its Surface collection,” says BUI Managing Director Ryan Roseveare. “The Laptop 3 and the Pro 7 are popular devices that deliver the power, speed, and mobility prized by on-the-go professionals, as well as the functionality required for comprehensive device management and protection,” he continues.

“As more and more businesses move to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives, the demand for robust, secure, enterprise-level productivity tools continues to grow. The Surface for Business devices available through BUI are geared for modern workplace communication and collaboration, and they are compelling solutions for companies that need to cater for evolving teams of on-site and remote staff,” Roseveare adds.
