Microsoft said strong sales in its business units helped the company log a six per cent growth in revenues in its most recent financial quarter.
The firm said its revenues for the third financial quarter topped out at $17.4bn, but profits dipped slightly to $5.1bn compared to $5.2bn in the previous year.
The revenue jump comes despite worse than expected numbers for the company's consumer gaming operations.
Much of the credit for the strong sales was given to Microsoft's business-oriented units.
General manager of investor relations, Bill Koefoed, told analysts that the Business Division saw overall revenues climb by nine per cent, while the consumer division saw revenues rise by just two per cent.
The company said that around 40 per cent of its revenues came from business licensing, while business PC-related sales were up eight per cent on the quarter compared to a six per cent gain from consumer PC sales.
"As CIOs look to address the needs of a more social and mobile workforce, our productivity services such as Office 365, have become an important solution," said Microsoft chief financial officer Peter Klein.
"Our communication and collaboration offerings such as Exchange, SharePoint and Lync, all grew revenue double-digits, and are well positioned in this growing market."
The company's server and tools division also saw growth on the quarter, with a 14 per cent jump in quarterly revenues, while Dynamics CRM revenues were up by 30 per cent.
The report comes as Microsoft continues its development of the Windows 8 platform. Executives said that both the desktop and ARM-based Windows RT builds remain on track for their release later this year.
