A day in the life of an SMB with Galaxy Book4 Ultra, Pro or Pro 360

As a small business owner, you have a lot to keep your eyes on at any given moment: revenue, expenses, and — most importantly — the clock.

Even if you’ve set ambitious goals to grow your company this year, you also have to meet quarterly targets. You probably have some sharp deadlines coming up, too. Ultimately, however, success depends on taking it one day at a time and working with as much focus and productivity as possible.

This isn’t easy, given the range of needs and demands from customers, employees and suppliers. That’s why one study found 83% of small business owners feel stressed by not having enough time to manage their workload.

Fortunately, the same research showed that 82% of small business owners also believe investing in digital solutions can reduce stress in their day-to-day lives.

Enter Galaxy Book4 Ultra, Pro and Pro 360

Samsung’s Galaxy Book4 UltraGalaxy Book4 Pro and Galaxy Book4 Pro 360 are all great examples of digital solutions designed to help businesses of every size power their operations.

These devices are productivity workhorses that pack in powerful performance with an Intel Ultra 7 processor. They also have an improved graphics processing unit (GPU) and a new neural processing unit (NPU) that help put small businesses on a path to integrating AI.

Although everyone’s workday is different — and for small business owners in particular, no two days are exactly alike — here’s a timeline that shows how the top Galaxy Book4 Series models can offer you support:

8:00 a.m. – Reviewing dashboards and KPIs

Urgent questions from customers and employees can’t always wait until you travel to an office. Sometimes, it’s best to start work early, clearing out your inbox and reviewing dashboards to confirm priorities for the rest of the day.

Accessing these kinds of applications and data outside a company firewall used to mean putting yourself in danger of cybersecurity threats. That’s no longer the case when you work with a Galaxy Book4 Ultra, Pro or Pro 360. These business laptops have achieved Secured Core PC certification, which means they have the strongest possible protection from Microsoft.

These PCs are also secured by Samsung Knox, which safeguards data both in rest and in motion from the chip up. Layers of protection at both the hardware and software levels allow you to focus on the work that needs to be done remotely at home rather than worry about bad actors penetrating defenses.

9:00 a.m. – Team meeting

Having regular touchpoints with key staff is still the best way to avoid duplication of effort and miscommunication. Even if you operate on a hybrid work model, it’s easy to bring those on-site together in a meeting room while others call in via video. As you dig into the agenda, though, it’s often clear your action items will include sharing and collaborating on content.

Let’s say a client proposal needs to go out but requires multiple stakeholders to review some key documents. The Galaxy Book4 Ultra, Pro and Pro 360 all come with Quick Share, which allows you to provide the materials everyone needs without sending endless emails.

Anyone can receive files, photos or other content instantly on their Galaxy Book4 Series device, Galaxy S24 mobile device or other Android device. This way, whether in the office or off-site, everyone can stay on the same page.

11:00 a.m. – Off-site partnership discussion

Few small businesses grow completely independently. Instead, they form joint ventures with similar organizations or partner with firms that have reached their target markets.

Getting time on someone’s calendar might mean meeting at a coffee shop between appointments. You might walk them through a slide deck or show off a “sizzle reel” of what your company could achieve. If seeing is believing, though, the person you’re pitching needs to be able to view everything clearly.

The upgraded Dynamic AMOLED 2X display on Galaxy Book4 Ultra and Pro provides that view, offering clear contrast and vivid color.

Even if you’re sitting near a window and the sun is out, the person you’re pitching won’t miss a thing. Galaxy Book4 Ultra and Pro come with Vision Booster, which uses an intelligent outdoor algorithm to automatically enhance visibility and color reproduction in bright conditions. Anti-reflective technology, meanwhile, can reduce distracting reflections. This is all part of making a good impression on potential partners.

2:00 p.m. – Investor meeting

Some plans can’t be executed without having the right financial resources in place. Banks, venture capitalists and other investors can help, but securing their support usually involves going over a number of options and discussing granular details.

Instead of typing notes during these meetings, use the S Pen to capture key points on your Galaxy Book4 Pro 360, which can transform from a business laptop into more of a tablet. If the time comes to sign off on a deal, simply use the S Pen and Pro 360 to do so electronically.

By this point in the day, your laptop may have been unplugged for some time. There is no need to fear, though, because, like the Galaxy Book4 Ultra and Pro, the Pro 360 comes with a long-lasting battery that can quickly recharge.

4:00 p.m. – Candidate interviews

We all know people are the most important asset any company can have, and hybrid work models mean you’re no longer limited to those who live near your office.

For example, you could spend the afternoon screening potential hires using Galaxy Book4 Ultra’s 1080p FHD camera, which enables high-quality video calls. Quad AKG speakers mean you can also hear every answer clearly, making interviews nearly as immersive and conversational as they would be in person.

Tomorrow, of course, will be another day. But with thin and light designs that offer great portability, lots of storage and plenty of ports, the Galaxy Book4 Ultra, Pro and Pro 360 have you covered.

Discover the full range of versatile Samsung Galaxy Books — including the newest Galaxy Book4 Series — all ready to give you newfound convenience and creativity.
