On Thursday, January 25, the Microsoft Across America tour will stop at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Tulsa from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to give local business representatives their first look at Windows Vista, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. Through a series of free seminars specifically designed for the Tulsa business community, attendees will learn how these products connect people to information, enable productivity, reduce costs, and provide a more secure environment.
“The launch of Windows Vista, Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 is one of the most significant product roll-outs to come to market over the past ten years for Microsoft,” said Chris Sakalosky, South Central Area General Manager, Small Midmarket Solutions & Partners Group. “We want to ensure that our business partners and customers are able to get hands-on experience with these products as they plan to implement them within their day-to-day businesses.
