With business-as-usual taking on a new meaning in today’s reality, organizations are turning to Microsoft Teams to help them meet their remote communication needs.

As one of the fastest-growing Microsoft business apps, the chat-based collaboration platform enables businesses to streamline communication and business operations. By providing work-from-home VoIP services, it’s become a front-running tool for organizations in this new remote working world we live in.

Since communication leads to better productivity, and therefore higher profitability, planning and adopting a modern workplace solution like Microsoft Teams can help you enhance the viability of your business manifold.

Let’s find out what Microsoft Teams is, how it facilitates professional teams, and why more than 500,000 organizations are using it as their hub for collaboration.

Microsoft Teams: the ultimate hub for working together

Microsoft Teams is a cloud-based collaboration service that allows businesses to hold online meetings, share documents and conduct business communications on a single platform.

End users can access a wide range of applications from the Microsoft 365 suite of tools to help them work more effectively. The four following core pillars of Teams help businesses in several ways:

Communicate

Microsoft Business Voice is a modern cloud-based telephony system in Microsoft Teams. As a VoIP Service System, it enables seamless communication through chat, meetings, and calls to mitigate delays when communicating remotely and also accelerate executive decision making.

Collaborate

Fully integrated with Microsoft 365 services such as SharePoint, Exchange and Yammer, Microsoft Teams streamlines a suite of business apps to help your corporate teams easily share and co-author files on a single online workspace.

Customize and expand

Organizations can customize Teams with their own APIs and bot frameworks. Easily integrate Teams with third-party apps and devices to unify your business communication.

Work with confidence

Teams offer enterprise-level compliance and security. Both partners and clients can easily access compliance information on the Microsoft Trust Center.

 

Security first with Microsoft 365

The Microsoft 365 suite provides businesses with the tools they need to collaborate effectively while maintaining a robust security posture.

Azure Active Directory

Microsoft Azure provides SSO (Single Sign-On) to thousands of web applications—protecting user identities with a wide range of multi-factor authentication.

Microsoft Cloud app security

With cloud app security, companies can manage end-user SaaS work applications and ensure that both Microsoft and third-party cloud providers secure your sensitive data at all times.

Microsoft Teams

Teams provide an extensive set of features that allow users to store documentation, chat with coworkers, host video and audio meetings, and make phone calls through easily-integrated third-party applications.

 

Microsoft Teams makes collaboration easier than ever

Successful businesses deploy a cloud-based PBX phone system for their communication needs. Given that many Sherweb partners successfully offer Microsoft 365 for their clients today, they don’t need to go for a separate provider for additional calling services.

Selling UCaaS (Unified-Communications-as-a-Service) to your customer requires you to introduce them to Microsoft Teams, which is already enabled and deployed for Microsoft 365. Consequently, without needing complex integrations, Teams partners can easily facilitate clients with adoption and change management training.

Whether it’s in collaborating in the office, working from home or on-the-go, clients using Teams for the first time will need help adjusting. Sherweb can guide you through the entire process! Our team of experts have in-depth technical knowledge of design, deployment and best practices for the entire Microsoft Office suite.
