During the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are shifting to remote work. Learn how Microsoft Teams and other tools keep your employees connected and productive.
How can you help your employees be productive and effective while working from home? During the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses need to shift to work-from-home models quickly.
Working with a local technology services company gives your business a proven partner that can help establish and optimize apps that help employees feel connected and working effectively.
Microsoft Teams is a cloud-based solution that gives employees a flexible remote workspace. It focuses on group communication and collaboration and interacts seamlessly with Microsoft Office 365, which is the cloud version of the popular bundle of productivity apps, including Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Teams lets your employees create shared spaces where they can store and work on files, communicate in real-time and invite others outside your organization — vendors, partners, volunteers and clients — to collaborate. Members can work on documents and talk about them simultaneously. Team members can create channels, which are conversation topics that let participants communicate within the platform, without having to use email or text messages. Direct messages can be sent to individuals privately or the whole team.
Microsoft Teams is an ideal tool for chats, conference calls or video conference calls.
