Microsoft Teams, Instant Messaging

By Dave Sutton on 15/07/2019

Instantly message your team, anywhere in the world.

Communicate with your team in one simple application.

Don't get caught up with nine conversations in six different applications, or with hundreds of emails flying around between staff contacts; Microsoft Teams enables you to chat instantly with your workforce in one solitary application, across any device that you use.

Unite the conversation.

Like out-dated instant messaging applications, Teams allows you to communicate swiftly and efficiently with any one single member, (or all), of your team, whether your next door or on the other side of the world. Send quick messages, file attachments, locations and even memes.

However, unlike other apps, Teams is a guarded, commercial product that forms part of your Office 365 cloud environment and is entirely within your control. Non-commercial chat services, such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, are personal to each user and the history of the chat, the content and any files/images shared within that space are outside of your control.


Cut down on all the emails.

Most empires rely heavily on email, both internally among staff associates, as well as externally with clients, suppliers and contractors. As trustworthy as email is; it's inefficient and hard to keep track of.

You've been there... plentiful of emails back and forth between countless team members about one single document. The document has been altered more than a few times and now no one knows which version is the newest. It's not saved centrally and at different points people have been copied in or out of the email chain. It's ridiculous.

Teams unifies and modernises co-working communication in one channel. Backed by SharePoint, Microsoft's Cloud file storage platform, Teams provides a united way to share files without the confusion of email attachments and unclear version control.
