Microsoft Teams is a communication and collaboration software application, and a key part of the Office 365 suite. While Microsoft Teams is extremely helpful for remote workers, it offers many great benefits to employees working in-house. Teams is the solution to collaboration, sharing and communication between users in modern workplaces. Find out why your business should be using Microsoft Teams.

Top reasons to use Microsoft Teams

Increased collaboration

Teams provides your organisation with streamlined communication right at your fingertips. Using the chat function within the program allows for easy to read threaded conversations, assisting employees with brainstorming, calls and meetings all in one place.

This increased communication comes with an increase in transparency within the organisation. Microsoft Teams makes it easy to reach who you need within the organisation, without having to worry about CCing people into emails or remembering to invite everyone to a meeting.

Increased productivity

Teams can drastically improve productivity by putting all your collaboration together in one place. This means that employees can chat, set up meetings, share files and more, all in one single interface. Gone are the days where employees will waste time searching through old emails for files! Employees can focus their valuable attention on their work.

Integration with Office 365 and third-party applications

Microsoft Teams seamlessly integrates with all other Office 365 applications such as Word, Excel, OneDrive and PowerPoint. This makes managing files a whole lot easier for employees. Additionally, as it is entirely cloud-based, you can pick up where you left off on any device with the application installed!

In addition to all your Microsoft applications, Teams integrates with third-party applications. Think Trello, Dropbox, MailChimp and so much more! It is simple to integrate your applications into Teams to boost productivity and keep on track.

Third-Party Integrations

Secure communication

As Teams is part of Office 365, it comes with end-to-end security, administrative control and compliance. Your organisation will be secure and in control of all communication.

Many businesses are making the switch to Microsoft Teams as it is a great application to boost productivity and collaboration in the workplace.
