Today’s workplace is changing in terms of the way we work and innovate. Simultaneously, businesses face uncertainty, whether it's via the economic impact of “Brexit” or more generally in terms of low productivity levels.
For businesses to be successful, there needs to be greater investment in people, tools and technology. They must embrace the new workforce and challenge existing models and ways of working.
With over 13 million daily users and more than 19 million weekly active users, Microsoft Teams is that tool. A task-focused, collaborative platform designed around productivity that brings together chat, meetings, calling, Office 365 apps, and third-party tools, all in one single workspace, Microsoft Teams enables employees to work better together. And built on enterprise-grade security and compliance capabilities, you can be sure that any documents you are collaborating on remain protected.
Microsoft Teams provides a shared workspace that enables teams to communicate with ease through chats - across geographies, languages and organisational boundaries. Additionally, access to common tools and office apps that people use every day—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, Planner, even Power BI—are built-in, allowing employees to view files and utilise the tools they need right within the platform.
Employees can share, co-author and edit Office and other files from within the application. As all files are stored on SharePoint, the latest version of the file is always accessible to any member on the ‘team’. This enables organisations to work more cohesively, sharing knowledge and allowing access to the information they need to complete their daily tasks.
While every team is unique, one thing that is consistent is that every team will need a variety of apps and tools when working on collaborative projects. Microsoft Teams is the universal hub for teamwork that brings them all together, allowing you to customise and extend your workspace with third party apps such as Salesforce, Trello and many more.
Microsoft Teams also offers a reliable telephony and meeting solution, supporting content sharing, video and audio conferencing, digital whiteboard, notes, and in-meeting chat, enabling you to meet from anywhere in the way that you want to - from spontaneous one-to-ones and team huddles, to organised meetings and large-scale online events and executive townhalls.
Microsoft Teams also provides industry leading security and compliance capabilities as well as rich management competencies to ensure your information and organisation is always secure.
