Coronavirus creating barriers? Microsoft Teams will keep you productive

Dropped in Dynamics 365 ERP

Formulated by Liam

With business events, sporting events, international flights and more being cancelled, it’s safe to say that coronavirus (COVID-19) has sparked health concerns across the globe.

So, what are we all supposed to do? Do we cancel all our business meetings? Stop meeting customers? Let new opportunities fall by the wayside? Absolutely not!

Microsoft Teams is available to us all for free for 6 months

Microsoft recently announced the wellbeing of employees and supporting customers in dealing with business impact is their top priority. As a result, they have made Microsoft Teams available to everybody for free for six months, in a move to support public health and safety.

I recently created a quick video based on how you can stay productive while remote working with Microsoft Teams. The video covers a range of features including Teams calls, chat-based communications and maintaining a collaborative team effort. 

It’s time to strike while the iron is hot and join our webinar on Thursday 19th March 2020 between 10:00am and 11:30am to make the choice: Is it time for your business to make the transition to Microsoft Teams? Invite everyone you work with to work together:

  • Chat - Share your opinion, and your personality. Use GIFs, emojis and stickers in group chats or one-to-one messages
  • Meet – Go from group chat to video conference in the click of a button. Need to talk to 10 or 10,000? It doesn’t matter where they are, you can engage with peopl
  • Call – Easily see who’s joined all your calls. Use Teams calling, Phone System, Calling Plan or Direct Routing to eliminate the stress from conference calls
  • Collaborate – Never get lost searching for files again. Access, share and edit Word Docs, PowerPoint and Excel in real-time

The future of communication and collaboration

Teams isn’t a coronavirus stop-gap, we’ve been preaching the benefits for a long time! Over Christmas, we evolved all our meeting rooms into Teams rooms. Multiple screens allow us to retain vital face-to-face communications.

We’re absolutely committed to the future of communication (and cutting our travel/hotel costs and our carbon emissions!) and we are looking forward to sharing our favourite Teams tips & tricks with you.

If you want to learn more about the fantastic features within Teams, or even upgrade your Office 365 subscription to unlock all the features, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us today!
