Microsoft’s fastest growing app is now used by more than 500,000 organizations… Can you guess what that is? Teams! Microsoft Teams has more than 75 million active daily users and has gained 31 million users in just over a month. If you are one of these users, then you are probably always finding new ways to use the app. But if you aren’t a user already, consider changing that today. Here are a few benefits of Teams:
Many of you know that your inbox can become cluttered very quickly which is why Teams can come in handy. Quick questions, conversations, and sharing files can effectively be handled by this app. Rather than sending an email to multiple people and clicking “Reply All,” Teams allows you to create teams and have one-on-one conversations where sending a message to people becomes a lot quicker and easier.
In the age of COVID-19, we are all living through virtual meetings and calls. While Zoom might be the most popular product out there, Microsoft’s response is Teams. On Team’s you can schedule a video meeting with pretty much anyone regardless of whether they have Teams or not. This is a useful tool for conducting important meetings with clients or selling your business solution.
Generates Greater Productivity
Microsoft has invested a great amount of time to make the Office 365 user experience as simple as possible. The idea behind Teams is that increasing simplicity creates greater productivity. Teams increases productivity by allowing everything you need to productively work to be in one single app: conversations, chats, shared files, tasks, virtual meetings, tasks, etc.
Stay Connected Anytime and Anywhere
When you’re on the go, it’s important to stay connected and be easily accessible to others. The Microsoft Teams mobile app gives you immediate access to your contacts, documents/files, meetings, and conversations. Available on Windows, Android, and iOS, this app allows you to chat with your team via text, phone conversations, or a video call. The mobile app is a must-have for any Teams user!
Improved Collaboration and Communication
Thanks to the tight integration with Office 365, there is no longer a need to switch between apps when you need to collaborate on a document. You can create a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document in Teams, and instantly share it with co-workers. In Outlook, you can quickly turn calendar events into virtual meetings through Teams. While working on a project together, you can share your screen, add comments, to-do’s, and converse with your coworker all in this app. Not having to send and resend updated versions eliminates a lot of confusion.
