When it comes to Microsoft Teams adoption, we’re frequently questioned about the benefits and costs. “Should we begin to use it? How should we explain it to our users?” The question for many businesses that have already embarked on the Microsoft 365 journey is not if, but when and how. Microsoft has decided to concentrate on Teams as the intelligent communication solution, discontinuing its investments in Skype for Business. People, on the other hand, are unsure about being forced to use anything unless they can see the benefits of doing so. This article outlines some of the benefits for businesses switching to Microsoft Teams.

Why Teams is the Perfect Hub for Organisational Teamwork

  • At its most basic level, Teams is a messaging tool that enables text communications between users, whether they are in the same office or work remotely.
  • However Microsoft Teams can do much more and integrates with Outlook to setup meetings internally and externally.
  • Teams enables local and remote workers to collaborate on content in real time across different devices, including laptops and mobile devices.
  • It can also act as you phone to make and receive calls within your company or with external clients.
