Microsoft Teams is a platform that facilitates teamwork in Office 365 with SharePoint Development Company. It has many features, especially for video conferencing. Since the Covid-19 crisis and the development of telework, many companies are studying this solution. Indeed, many companies already work with a Microsoft environment (Windows, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.), hence the interest in continuing with Teams in their digital transition.
The varied features of Teams
Microsoft Teams is more than project management software. It is a collaborative platform launched in 2016. It is part of the Office 365 suite. It has various tools allowing employees to work together, remotely and online. It offers various functionalities:
- Electronic messaging with calendar, contact and task management;
- File sharing software;
- OneNote, to take notes in meetings;
- Audio and video call;
- A video conferencing application…
This software therefore makes it possible to centralize contacts, files, tools and conversations on a single platform. This collaborative solution is very useful for organizing remote meetings, especially in the case of teleworking.
An application acclaimed by companies
This software from the firm of Bill Gates has enjoyed growing success since its arrival in France. Its market share increased from 6% in 2018 to 33% in 2019. The containment and the emergency implementation of teleworking have accelerated its rise. Thus, worldwide, a peak of 200 million participants was recorded in April 2020. The success of this tool is explained by its many features and its ease of use for videoconferencing.
A reliable solution for videoconferencing
Microsoft Teams allows you to start a video call with several collaborators by clicking directly on the camera icon. Access to videoconferencing is therefore facilitated. Screen sharing and Word, Excel or Powerpoint documents are also possible, which is very useful in meetings for presentations.
If employees are absent, they can watch the videoconference using the meeting recording . Guest access allows people outside the company to join a video or audio meeting via an email address. In this case, it is not necessary to have the application and the guest will have access only to the group to which he was invited.
Consequently, this collaborative platform is therefore a complete tool and perfectly adapted to communication between employees, with customers or service providers. Finally, the acceleration of teleworking has confirmed the success of this application.
