What Is Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams is a unified communication cloud collaboration platform that enables small businesses in Perth to communicate and collaborate effectively. As part of the broader Microsoft ecosystem of business tools, MS Teams is an excellent option for small businesses looking to connect better and even work remotely. Once set up, employees can connect to Teams online or connect via the Teams app for desktop or mobile. Small businesses in Perth can benefit from using either the free version of Teams or get it as part of a Microsoft 365 business subscription.
If you are thinking about using a real time collaboration platform for your small Perth business, Superior IT recommends using Teams. Having helped dozens of small companies including firstline workers take this step, we understand the benefits the communications tool can bring to your business. We can help you install it across all your devices and train your staff on how to use it effectively. This will make it easy for you to replace face to face meetings with an equally effective way of meeting and collaborating through the cloud.
Benefits of Using Microsoft Teams
Small businesses that use Teams see immense productivity gains. From video conferencing to group chat, and even the ability to chat privately within Teams, small businesses using MS Teams as a hub for teamwork achieve significant productivity gains when they use the tool effectively.
Teams is the Swiss Army Knife of collaboration tools. Built into the platform, you will find support for meeting scheduling, video meeting, screen sharing, chat based file uploads and previews, email integration, instant messaging, and so much more. Built as a centralized collaboration hub for teams, MS Teams brings together extensive functionalities so you and your team can work from one place.
Teams Integrates with Other Microsoft Tools
MS Teams works with all other Microsoft products. For a small business in Perth using Microsoft Office, this becomes extremely useful because you can efficiently work with all your current files from within Teams. Connect OneDrive to upload and share files within chats, preview files from within Teams, and even send files to email addresses from within Teams.
Numerous Third-party Integrations
If you use 3rd party tools like HubSpot or Salesforce, you can easily connect these tools to MS Teams. These integrations make it easy to pull data into Teams or push data to your third-party apps from Teams, not only saving time but allowing you to keep using the tools you have been using.
Remote Working Ready
Remote working continues to be a big trend for small businesses in Perth. More small businesses are embracing technology to streamline team conversations, boost productivity and drive down costs. MS Teams provides all the tools you need to manage and effectively collaborate with remote workers and teams. Easily set up conference calls, group chats, share files, and more all from within Teams.
Security and Compliance
MS Teams offers enhanced security and compliance features that may be necessary for your business. All communications on Teams are encrypted, which acts as a powerful safety feature against data breaches. Calls on Teams are also fully encrypted, an important feature when having sensitive meetings with staff or clients across the country or the world.
Meetings in MS Teams come enhanced with additional tools that make it easier to get more out of each session. Record calls or video chats, get transcripts of a meeting, take notes during a meeting, or translate conversations all within Teams. MS Teams helps you do more with your meetings so you can get more done with fewer meetings.
Desktop and Mobile Apps
Microsoft Teams desktop app makes it easy and convenient to use the platform within your desktop environment. Teams mobile apps for Android and Apple are great for staying connected on your mobile device. Since all the apps have the same functionality as the cloud version, you can efficiently work across platforms without skipping a beat.
