What is Microsoft Teams and why should my business use it?

No matter how long they have been in operation, many businesses are constantly looking for better ways to streamline systems and processes to make communication easier and more seamless within the organization. Since the start of the pandemic and with remote work becoming more common, many companies need to communicate with their team worldwide. 

Through research and trying many different tools, we have finally landed on a system that works for us. That system is Microsoft Teams. Not only has it made internal communication much more efficient for us, but we also recommend that our clients use Microsoft Teams. Let’s take a look at why we recommend this useful suite of tools.

Communication through Microsoft Teams

Communication is essential in a successful business. With the help of Microsoft Teams, companies and their employees can communicate effectively.

At the core, Microsoft Teams is a communication platform. It can also be used as a hub to store important documentation for the entire team to access. Along with being a great communication tool throughout organizations, Microsoft Teams has a chat option that can be used for casual conversations, including a video option for virtual meetings. This allows for quick and efficient meetings.

Document collaboration with Teams

All Microsoft software, such as Word and Excel, integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Teams. All of an organization’s team members can create channels or hubs for each client or customer, providing their team members with the ability to easily access information in a common location. 

This collaboration element to Microsoft Teams allows employees to make updates and edits to the documents in real-time. This helps everyone keep track of edits and stay on the same page.

Microsoft Teams is a useful communication and collaboration platform for businesses and even individuals to use. If you have questions or need additional information about Microsoft Teams, we would be happy to schedule a consultation with you.
