Microsoft Teams is a cutting edge cloud service that has been designed to create a highly streamlined workflow for collaborative teamwork. Microsoft released it in 2017 and its main function was to bring conversations and people together.

The application’s core purpose is to make the interaction between team members separated by geographical distances as effective and productive as possible. The application has been fully integrated into the Office 365 environment and it is part of the standard MS Office applications suite.

1. It Allows for Seamless Integration with Major Software Solutions

Microsoft Teams can be used with many different applications even outside the Microsoft ecosystem. This makes it an ideal collaboration tool for business users. Just a few clicks of the mouse and keyboard and your Microsoft Teams environment can be tailored to your specific business needs.

For example, it can be seamlessly integrated with Microsoft tools such as Yammer, a business social network, as well as an application like Asana, which you may be using for Project Management. This is in addition to the usual Microsoft services and applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote and other applications in the Office Suite.

2. Safe and Easy Access to Corporate Resources

Thanks to rapid advances in cloud computing services, it is now much easier for executives with hectic workloads to take care of their business on the go. They can send and receive internal business communications and important data both safely and securely thanks to the Microsoft Teams application. The solid security features ensure that they will be able to communicate with employees and business partners alike, with complete peace of mind. As long as they have a suitable internet connection, they will be able to take their office with them wherever they are.

It does not matter if you are at the airport waiting for your flight or on the train on your way home from work, you will have complete access to corporate resources. The Microsoft Teams collaborative software experience ensures that logging on to the app will be akin to sitting in front of your workstation.

3. It Has a Highly Intuitive Interface

Another reason why this collaborative software is so popular is its highly intuitive interface. The app is structured in such a way that the users can see various functional tabs.  They will get instant access to corporate data and team group chats by clicking on the relevant tab.

Even people who don’t have much experience with working on Microsoft devices will be able to get the hang of this extremely user-friendly application within a few minutes, at most.

In light of the above, we can safely say that Microsoft has effectively revolutionised the workplace. In fact, it has turned just about every online device into a virtual office!

Available on all devices (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android) and compatible with all web browsers (Chrome, Edge etc.), there is no doubt whatsoever that this is one great communication tool for business.
