Helpful Advice and Prizes – An Office Paperclip……Re-Imagined


Update February 2013: Congratulations to our three Winners!

Thanks to everyone who took part in our 2012 Festive campaign. Our lucky winners, Scott Baillie from Zonal Retail Data Systems, Christopher Dean from Digital Tactics Ltd and Dan Sharp from Mirus IT, each win an Xbox, Kinect and game bundle. We hope you enjoy your prize.





Seasons Greetings! To celebrate this season of goodwill we’ve decided to bring back a blast from the past!

Back in the 90’s the Microsoft Office Paper Clip annoyed, well, pretty much everyone! For December we took pity! We’ve taken him out of retirement, attempted to make him look presentable and given him express instructions: 

From the 1st to 31st December 2012, if you’re browsing the UK partner portal and you come across the re-imagined paperclip, alongside offering you handy tips and suggestions, he may also provide you with the opportunity to enter a draw to win one of three bundles comprising an Xbox 360, Kinect System and game.

Evidently he still has some bitter feelings associated with his retirement! We apologise in advance!

There are Terms and Conditions (See attached below).

    I wish they brought it back in Office as an add-on or just an option you can tick.

  2. Everyone had a favourite, mine was either the cat or lil' Einstein depening on mood.  Never clippy though!

    Yeah he's awesome.  Now he's gone I miss him!

    It was his sarcastic look that got me. It kind of said "I could have written this letter in half the time you have taken!". Did he deliberately look French or is that just me?
