By integrating Microsoft Teams into your business you’ll be able to revolutionise the way in which your teams work and communicate together no matter regardless of location or device.
Microsoft Teams features
What can Microsoft Teams do?
Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration platform offering document sharing, online meeting rooms, and other functionality. It is the ultimate hub for online business communication. The ‘all in one’ features make it the leading collaboration software in the world today.
The defining features of Microsoft Teams include:
Teams and Channels
Channels are conversation and project boards, which organise team threads into a single channel — no more hunting around for emails that someone forgot to include you in!
Use chat to message people or groups for quick answers, which, in turn, helps reduce inbox overload in Outlook.
Document Storage in SharePoint
Every employee using Microsoft Teams will have access to SharePoint, a secure place to store, organise, share and access files. This platform makes document collaboration and sharing within Teams easy.
Online video calling and screen sharing
Quick and easy access to video calling. With the click of a button, you can reach colleagues and people outside your business. This feature is a must for Teams collaboration and communication. It also includes desktop sharing as a feature.
Teams online meetings
Microsoft Teams offers meetings for all occasions. Whether you’re meeting one-to-one, delivering a sales pitch, conducting a group training session, or running a company-wide address, it has the functionality you need.
Teams audio conferencing & cloud telephony
Microsoft 365 Business Voice is a cloud-based telephony solution within Microsoft Teams. It combines a phone system, domestic calling plan, SMS, and audio conferencing. With audio conferencing, anyone can join an online meeting via phone without an internet connection. (Note, this requires additional licensing).
