Change the game with Microsoft Teams
Flexible remote workspaces
Anywhere there is the internet, there is a workspace. You can host immersive meetings and virtual events from anywhere. Colleagues working in different places can seamlessly co-author and share files. This gives you a flexible workforce to create magic wherever they work.
Microsoft Teams delivers a unified platform that goes beyond chats and calls. That’s because it can simulate in-office discussions with instant messaging while fostering collaboration with built-in file sharing. What’s more, you can host immersive webinars or training sessions for your staff, customers or prospects anywhere in the world.
When you create with Teams, you get protection from malicious software with end-to-end security. Keep meetings on track by managing undesired disruptions. Teams lets you regulate access based on risk level or seniority, so you can be sure who is accessing your sensitive information.
Efficiency with integrated apps
Microsoft Teams allows users to integrate or create apps, digitize tasks, and automate processes to help boost productivity. Users can also simplify operations with a library of over 800 apps to choose from. Plus, your tech team can quickly build custom apps and digital tools for tailored solutions.
