Solutions Partner designation

SOCO (ASX:SOC) is thrilled to announce its attainment of the fourth Solutions Partner designation within the Microsoft AI Cloud Partner program – the Data and AI Solutions Partner designation. As one of Australia’s first Microsoft Data and AI Solutions Partners, SOCO showcases its expertise in leveraging artificial intelligence for business applications.

Implementing Microsoft AI in the workplace offers numerous benefits, including boosted productivity, enhanced decision-making, improved customer engagement, and better employee experiences. Head of Partnerships, Natasha Reynolds commented: “AI companions such as Microsoft Copilot are already helping SOCO clients accomplish tasks with greater precision and speed.”

In November 2023, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced the Australian Government’s decision to explore the safe and responsible use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) in the public service in partnership with Microsoft, through the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA). As the world moves toward a future where AI is commonplace, SOCO will continue to help businesses embrace responsible AI integration and innovation, enabling clients to take advantage of cutting-edge technologies while ensuring ethical practices, transparency, and privacy.
