One app, which is killing all the rest

3.04.19

Confused by all the options in Office 365? Skype, Yammer, Teams, SharePoint…

Technology tools are rapidly evolving, and so are the range of tools & features available to users within each of them. They are built to make our lives easier, however with their fast & frequent additions and changes, they can bring a lot of confusion & re-training requirements in businesses.

Providing your team with access to too many software tools will inevitably mean they will use them improperly, or not at all.

Avoid the scary prospect of ‘shadow IT’ creeping into your business; the process by which end users will go off and find their own familiar, often insecure consumer-style products. Instead, why not involve them within your technology strategy & provide them with training on the right tools.

 

Let’s take an overview of Microsoft Teams

Joining a long-line of communication and collaboration tools; Microsoft brings forward Teams as their single-platform answer to a multitude of business operational needs.

Operating as a single ‘pane of glass’, users can access instant message conversations, share files, access calendars, run video conferencing, view intranet-style information wikis and make notes all within the one desktop application or online app.

By consolidating your other tools to the single platform, you won’t need to look back on the days of switching between a sea of apps, losing track of your files or drowning under a mountain of emails.

A fantastic statistic shows Teams to be already outstripping all previous Microsoft products to be their fastest growing platform yet! The simplicity, combined with an all-in-one approach, has captured the demands of users looking for a 365-linked alternative to the likes of big players, such as Slack.

Teams is available on most Office 365 subscriptions at no extra cost. Most of the core features are available to users out of the box, however there are additional features such as the embedded full phone system, which will carry additional fees.

 

Lost among a multitude of tools and resources?

If you are drowning in a sea of far too many app options and your business demands a more straight-forward approach, Teams is likely the best answer.
