Is Your Business Using Microsoft Teams?

So is your business using Microsoft Teams? If that is a yes – are you really using all its features properly? When done right it can totally revolutionize the way your business
works.

Teams is much more than the app you can turn to instead of using Zoom for video calls. Teams has made communication and collaboration even more effective than the traditional ways of working face-to-face.

Long gone are the days when different versions of the same documents were flying around on email. Set up Teams correctly and your colleagues can work together in real-time – with only one master copy of a document that is shared and accessed in real time between users. You can even revert back to previous versions of a document if somebody makes an error or heads in the wrong direction.

Setting up dedicated channels within Teams lets defined groups of people focus on specific projects and topics. This makes sure that people only get notified about the work they are involved in. This helps stop Teams being overwhelming or confusing.

If you start to embrace Microsoft Teams it will positively change the way your business works.
