Surface drives better banking in Germany

Businesses continue to see the value in Surface as a powerhouse tablet. It allows employees to have business training material and applications at their fingertips, without being tethered to a PC or heavy laptop.


German bank, Volksbank Mittelhessen, decided to up their game and acquire better young talent for their training academy by deploying Microsoft Surface tablets. As new hires enter the Volksbank Academy, they are given a Surface tablet with built-in Kickstand and keyboard Cover.


Because employees are already familiar with the Windows operating system, it made sense for Volksbank to choose a Windows tablet for bank employee training. Surface and Office work brilliantly together because they are optimized for the Windows 8 interface. Trainees can mark up presentations and documents with notes and questions for near instant feedback and collaboration. And Volksbank can rest assured that employees are receiving the most up-to-date training possible, without wasting reams of paper with every new class of employee hires.

Watch the video below to see how Volksbank employees are using Surface to improve new employee training and retention.
