Teams is transforming the way our clients are handling collaboration during these challenging times. With the ability to meet, chat, call and collaborate from anywhere, businesses can maintain and even increase productivity in the current remote working environment.

Meet from anywhere…

Teams boasts a ton of awesome meeting features. You can host online meetings with anyone, anywhere; invite a single colleague or run a live event for up to 10,000 people with Teams Live Events. You can include both internal and external guests, share your screen, record meetings and share files directly through the meeting chat, collaborating in real-time. Take advantage of high-quality audio, video, and screen sharing, all while remaining secure and compliant through Microsoft native voice recording and logging.

Chat from anywhere…

Chats enable and encourage a constant dialogue amongst your teams. You can create both individual or group chats and also add people to existing chats.  Choose whether they see the full history, or have visibility only into what is said once they’re dropped in. Like meetings, you can share content and files directly or leverage some of the native application plugins such as PowerBI to enhance the conversation.

Call from anywhere…

Never yell “who just joined?!” ever again. The Teams interface allows you to visibly see who is on the call. Use the mobile Teams app to enable your employees to take their calls from home or any desired location. Include both internal and external attendees with global dial in numbers. Turn on video to interact face-to-face, blur backgrounds in more formal conference meetings and record sessions to review later.

Collaborate from anywhere…

Through Teams, you can not only share your screen and desktop but can also request and pass control. You can access files seamlessly from SharePoint & OneDrive that naturally adhere to your firm’s access & permission policies. Brainstorm with colleagues through Microsoft Whiteboard virtual canvas where you can transform your work into professional-looking charts and shapes and access them across all devices.
