Microsoft Teams

As the world comes to terms with the ongoing effects of the global coronavirus pandemic, there can’t be many companies that haven’t been involved in a Microsoft Teams meeting in 2020.

It’s clear to see why — Microsoft’s collaboration platform is a solid improvement on the company’s already globe-spanning Skype technologies.

And our UC1 Voip platform seamlessly transforms TEAMS to become a fully functioning, hosted telephony solution, enabling all staff across all locations to collaborate and communicate in a safe and secure environment.

Here are just five ways Microsoft Teams can help with your business continuity and remote-working culture – contact us today to learn more about how Connectus can help with your collaboration requirements.

It’s More Than Just Chat

Need to share a file? Just attach it in the chat. Then simply call or video call your colleague to discuss the file straight from the window. Or schedule a meeting without leaving the chat. Chat’s integration with other Microsoft products like OneNote and Office means no more switching between apps throughout your conversation.

Before, During And After Meetings

Meetings in Teams makes the collaboration experience so much easier. As soon as you create the meeting, you can start chatting with the participants about the agenda, share the files that you need them to review, and keep track of the meeting notes and to dos. You can even check who those unknown people are that have been invited.

Following the meeting, the recording of the call is immediately available in the same tab, so if you missed the meeting, you don’t need to hunt for the recording.

Fewer Emails

Drowning in your emails becomes a thing of the past. As conversations are now held in a structural way in your Teams, you no longer have all the email-upon-email response, often sent as a Reply All.

And if somebody needs to send you a file, or ask you a one-liner question? That’s what Chat’s for!

Improved Collaboration And Communication

Thanks to the tight integration with Office 365, you don’t need to switch apps when you need to collaborate on a document. You can create the Word, Excel or PowerPoint document in Teams, immediately share it with your co-workers and then co-author within a blink of an eye.

No more sending out different versions through email and the resulting version confusion. You can add comments and to-dos, and chat with your co-workers to discuss the document right there.

Stay Connected, Anytime, Anywhere

While on the move, we need to stay connected, be reachable and have access to all your resources. With the Teams phone app, you have immediate access to all your apps and documents. You can easily respond to chat and conversations, join meetings with one click and continue to collaborate. So even on the move, you are kept completely in the loop.
