If your enterprise uses the Office 365 suite, you may have noticed an application called Microsoft Teams. This collaboration platform has been underutilized by organizations. But during certain times, such as the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s become essential for connecting remote teams to foster business continuity and productivity.
What Is Microsoft Teams?
Accessible on the Office 365 platform, Microsoft Teams allows your organization to deliver meeting experiences, chat, content, and calling on any device. Teams is typically referred to as “the hub for teamwork in Office 365.” It allows coworkers to communicate, collaborate, and share in real time. Furthermore, users can share files created and stored in Office 365 programs like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and One Drive.
While competing solutions solve for issues such as communication delays, Microsoft Teams offers a single, comprehensive digital working environment connecting Office 365 features on any device. It’s the ultimate collaboration tool for enterprises that already rely on Office 365 for daily operations.
Do You Need Microsoft Teams If You Already Use an Instant Messaging Tool?
Change isn’t easy. But ask yourself, can your enterprise afford to avoid change?
Microsoft Teams has a customizable set of collaboration tools designed to foster productivity. Typical chat allows teams to send instant messages and video chat, but it has fewer capabilities and integrations. Chat is great for communicating but not great for meetings or sharing files with a remote team.
What Are the Benefits of Using Microsoft Teams?
Prompt, clear communication is vital to your operations in today’s fast-paced, global economy. Enterprises need communication options that allow the remote workforce to communicate with each other easily and effectively.
Microsoft Teams allows your employees to share and receive the information they need to stay on schedule and meet deadlines. You can use it to unite remote workers and ensure that their workflows will be unaffected by circumstances.
If your enterprise is already using Office 365 programs, Microsoft Teams is a natural extension of your normal activities. It’s available for Windows, iOS, and Android, so your employees can use it on all their work devices. This integration with other platforms allows employees a shorter time to adoption.
