As usual, Microsoft has been searching for revitalizing ideas to give themselves an edge over their competition. Microsoft and Starbucks are teaming up to bring new additions to their Microsoft Outlook software. This simple combination could be a revolutionizing idea for Microsoft and their Outlook software.
Microsoft Outlook now allows users to book events and schedule meetings at the nearest convenient Starbucks. With this new add-in, people can be expected to schedule more frequent meetings at the popular coffee shop for many business workers going on their lunch break. The professional atmosphere that Starbucks provides, allows people to trust their choice in attaining a venue that provides a delightful menu for all types of people. This allows business leaders to not only schedule a meeting, but feel comfortable with their choice of choosing Starbucks for their professional engagements. When people feel the need to place an order, this new setup grants users to be directed to the company’s mobile app to order their desired beverages. After a great meeting or a congratulatory achievement, people may want to thank their clients or another coworker in their workplace. With Microsoft Outlook they now have the ability to send “Thank You” gift cards with just a click of the button. What’s better than that? For your knowledge, the add-ins are available in Microsoft Outlook 2013 and later, so make sure you have the latest versions to try out this awesome new software!
This additional update to the Microsoft Outlook program can gather more intentions than one might think. It could lay the foundation for Microsoft and their ability to allow users to schedule meetings at various locations other than Starbucks. For Starbucks, it generates the popularity of people choosing their locations over other options around the country. In the end, it’s the beginning of a win streak for both Starbucks and Microsoft.
