Originally a collaboration tool, Microsoft Teams has evolved into a digital hub for the workplace – integrating numerous information sources in an easy-to-use collaboration and communication tool.
As organizations have become familiar and comfortable with the primary features that facilitate work within Microsoft Teams, such as chats, meetings, calls and group collaboration, they may begin to wonder how to expand upon the use of the feature-rich tool.
Teams can help organizations support knowledge workers by bringing information to them directly and easily, rather than forcing them to jump through hoops to find the information they need daily.
Expanding the breadth and depth of Teams coverage across your organization can solve many challenges, eliminating or minimizing friction for end users, particularly those who use many applications throughout their workday.
We created a series of blogs to help you learn more about how Teams, along with tools and integrations within the platform, can transform your company.
