2020 saw the world turn in it’s sleep and wake up to a new world of remote working.  

Initially, this presented a new challenge in our working life – we would no longer have to endure the morning commute to the office, team meetings in the boardroom or enjoy social networking opportunities.  

Instead, due to the government restrictions, we would make the transition to what is now the new normal and begin working from home 

Understandably this took some time to get used to with many of us figuring out ways to stay connected to colleagues while maintaining a productive environment.  

Adoption of Remote Working  

COVID-19 created the world’s largest working from home experiment that resulted in a rapid adoption of Microsoft Teams 

Many businesses had to make a fast transition to remote working, inevitably putting more pressure on IT teams to facilitate large scale migrations with little planning time.  

Naturally, this changed our working environment and pushed cloud-based collaboration tools to the forefront of business needs. 

Therefore, Microsoft Teams was, and remains to be, the ideal solution for many businesses as it provides a remote workspace and meeting place for an entire organisation and its clients.  

This is further exemplified through the number of daily active users. The number of users grew exponentially increasing from 32 million users in March 2019 to 75 million as of April 2020 and this was only the beginning of people’s Microsoft journey. Fast forward to October and we had witnessed an acceleration to reach 115 million daily users on the platform.  

Solve the collaboration conundrum with Microsoft Teams 

Establishing a modern workplace isn’t always easy but a great place to start is through creating communication and collaboration with Microsoft Teams. If you are seeking a secure, cloud-based platform that will enable your employees to collaborate regardless of where they are, then look no further than Teams.  

Bringing together everything in a shared workspace, Teams allows you to chat, meet, share files and work with business apps. Your workers will not only be able to communicate more effectively but work better together while you offer greater flexibility.  

Benefits of Microsoft Teams 

Microsoft Teams stretches far beyond a reactive solution that facilitated business continuity during a time of global unpredictability. It’s a secure communication and collaboration tool that provides long-term responsiveness across your organisation and works to unify departments. 

Teams core benefits include: 

  • Productivity gains and enriched communication  
  • Built-in security, compliance and manageability from Microsoft 365  
  • Integration with Microsoft solution and third-party vendors 
  • Seamless move to a digital workplace with a single platform to consolidate all the info you need for your colleagues to do their work
