Too many options to manage within Microsoft Office 365?


Too many options to manage within Microsoft Office 365?

Perplexed by all the choices in Office 365? Skype, Teams, SharePoint…

Cloud platforms are advancing and so has the range of features and tools available to users within them. As much as they may make many of our lives easy-going, they can also bring a lot of misunderstanding & disorder between a variety of employees.

Giving people access across too many tools and they’ll use them incorrectly or not at all.

Don’t let ‘shadow IT’ tiptoe into your business by letting team members go off and find their own acquainted, often consumer-style products. Why not instead give them a strategy & training on the correct tools that best fit the desires of the business.


An understanding into Microsoft Teams

Uniting a long-line of communication and collaboration tools; Team’s is Microsoft’s single-platform response to a variety of business operational desires.

Working from a single ‘pane of glass’, users can access instant messaging, file sharing, calendars, video conferencing, intranet-style information wikis and notes all within one desktop application or online application.

By connecting to the platform, you won’t need to look back on the days of shifting between a host of apps, losing track of your files or sinking under a mountain of emails.

A quite surprising, but totally understandable statistic, is showing Teams to be already outstripping all previous Microsoft products to be their fastest growing platform yet! The simplicity combined with an all-encompassing approach, has secured the crowds looking for a 365-linked substitute to the likes of Slack.

Teams is available on most Office 365 subscriptions at no added cost. Most of the core features are available as normal, however there are further features such as the embedded phone system, which can carry additional fees.
