by | Mar 19, 2020 | Collaboration, Coronavirus (COVID-19)

With the impact of COVID-19 increasing daily, the percentage of employees working from home on a regular basis is growing. It is now time for organizations to be ready. Can your organization seamlessly support remote workers? Microsoft Teams has the answers.

In this recap, we will review the main considerations for supporting remote workers’ voice and collaboration needs more effectively. Microsoft Teams fosters a work anywhere, anytime, from any device lifestyle; making it easy for employee collaboration.

Features

Teams enhances meetings and improves remote meeting efficiency. Features like presence, video, screen sharing, and shared notes are accessible anywhere from any device. These capabilities are integrated with a full suite of collaboration tools in a single application to help employees be at the top of their game. Microsoft Teams vastly improves upon Skype for Business, enabling greater communication inside and outside of meetings.

When hosting remote meetings, using Skype for Business or other platforms, there are common challenges to overcome – Microsoft Teams provides the tools to do so. Some of the most likely culprits for poor remote meetings are scheduling difficulty, usability and integration with core applications, and audio-video options. Microsoft Teams can help to mitigate these issues.

The Teams scheduling assistant helps overcome scheduling issues by suggesting times that are open for all participants. Because Teams is easy to use and integrated with the applications your employees use day-in-and-day-out; learning and employee adoption are rapid. Finally, Teams users can connect to a meeting from the desktop app, the mobile app, any browser, or they can dial in for audio access.
