Over the last few years, more and more companies are moving to work-from-home and hybrid work. According to workplace communication statistics in 2021, 86% of employees and executives cite the lack of effective collaboration and communication as the main causes of workplace failures. It’s therefore not surprising that teams who communicate effectively may increase their productivity by as much as 25%.
For that reason, the demand for highly-effective communication platforms is continuously on the rise, so we decided to shed some light on why exactly it’s great to have Microsoft Teams on board.
What is Microsoft Teams?
Once Slack appeared, it changed the way people worked forever. Microsoft thought about buying Slack back in 2016. However, Bill Gates talked them out of that idea, and on demand, they started to built their own version. Fortunately, they did a good job.
Microsoft Teams is a cloud-based, real-time Unified Communications platform that brings together chat, meetings, calling, file collaboration, and many of the productivity apps you need, all in one place.
This article explains the main reasons why businesses prefer using Teams among a wide range of competitors, or – what’s so great about MS Teams?
Streamline all communication into one, easy-to-use service
With Microsoft Teams, you can get not only an all-in-one communication platform for business collaboration but also an effective workspace with many features and functions. Teams can manage phone calls, chats, meetings, corporate libraries, tasks and much more.
The platform is fully available online through the cloud with real-time updates for anyone involved in business processes, such as employees, managers, and even customers and suppliers. And last but not least, you can save costs significantly by using one single platform instead of paying for a couple of different ones.
Continuous integration with new features and services
Everything goes more smoothly when you move to the cloud. Whatever your business needs, it’s easy to stay up to date. Low-code software lets you easily integrate many features and services your company needs to succeed.
Fuse 2 Communications offers a variety of solutions and services that can be integrated into Microsoft Office 365 platforms. For example, one of them is Clobba, our call reporting and analytics solution that collects and analyses all data across all communication channels. With its clear and actionable insights across touchpoints, you can greatly increase your sales and workforce efficiency.
Stay connected anywhere, at anytime
If you want the best team, you need the best people, and the best people aren’t always in the same place as you. Microsoft Teams opens up the possibility of working from anywhere, any time, and on any device, making life easier and communication more effective. Moreover, there’s no place for a fear that you can forget to save a file – cloud storage lets your teams pick up files or collaboration features from where they left them off.
