17 Jul Microsoft Teams, Instant Messaging from anywhere
Connect with your team in one simple application.
Don’t get caught up with eleven conversations in four different applications, or with thousands of emails flying around between staff contacts; Microsoft Teams enables you to chat instantly with your workforce in one solitary application, across any device that you want to use.
Unify the conversation.
Like out-dated instant messaging applications, Teams allows you to communicate swiftly and efficiently with any one single member, (or all), of your team, whether your next door or in a different continent. Send messages, file attachments, locations, Gifs and even memes.
However, unlike other similar apps, Teams is a protected, commercial product that forms part of your Office 365 cloud environment and is entirely within your control. Non-commercial chat services, such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, are personal to each individual and the past of the chat, the content and any files/images shared within that space are outside of your control.
Cut down on all the countless emails.
Most employments rely deeply on email, both internally among staff members, as well as externally with clients, suppliers and contractors. As dependable as email is; it’s inefficient and hard to keep track of.
You’ve been there… an abundance of emails back and forth between various team members about one single document. The document has been altered several times and now no one knows which version is the most up to date. It’s not saved centrally and at different points people have been copied in or out of the email chain. It’s absolute chaos.
Teams unites and streamlines co-working communication in one channel. Backed by SharePoint, Microsoft’s Cloud file storage platform, Teams provides a integrated way to share files without the confusion of email attachments and confusing version control.
