Increasing customer demands and scaling businesses require the workplaces to be a lot more productive, transparent and challenging than ever before. In order to stay in line with the organization’s goals and achieve milestones, a more intuitive collaboration/communication platform that makes the workday easier for employees enabling
Often times, as an organization, we function as teams or groups. Effective communication and making potential use of it can accelerate project deliverables and improve work culture which is very critical to any organization’s success. It’s an untold truth that when we work and make decisions as a team, we can achieve a lot.
Teams has evolved as an intelligent communication tool transforming workforces into highly performing teams. Teams is designed with nimbleness to foster collaboration, communication, transparency, and a strong sense of purpose across teams. Teams brings everything together in a shared workspace where you can make calls, meet, share files and extend Teams to integrate with any third-party or modern business application. In a nutshell, “Teams is an enterprise-ready collaboration framework” and the following characteristics of Teams make it superior to Slack:
Communication and the mode of communication are the two major factors that transform workplaces into a highly productive environment. That said, the reason is it’s important to keep communication as transparent as possible and get everyone on the same page to work better together. Teams supports communication through group chats, online meetings, calling, & web conferencing and helps get work done faster by bringing content and context at fingertips. Teams enables employees to stay connected with one another from where they are and makes communication highly effective. Teams is available across a wide range of devices including desktop, mobile and browser.
Teams empowers collaboration across geographies, languages, and organizations by allowing employees to share information or files and interact with one another in an open and transparent way with threaded, persistent channel discussions. These channels not only bring different teams associated with a project together but empower them to stay in sync with group chats. Teams allows people to share files within a team or an organization and enables them to work collaboratively even if they are located at different places. Group chat, instant messaging, video calling, scheduling meetings, and file-sharing capabilities make Teams a more robust collaboration platform.
It’s pretty common that companies use many third-party applications such as Zendesk, Hootsuite, Asana, and more on a day-to-day basis based on their business needs. Few people may have to switch between one or many of these applications more often to get their work done and accomplish project deliverables. Due to which they may waste a lot of productive hours in consuming the data & achieving operational visibility and process efficiency. That’s the reason why Teams can be extended to integrate with any third-party application and also supports integration with the rest of all Office 365 components from where you can directly access SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook, Calendar, and more.
Data security and compliance are very critical to manage & maintain company and customer sensitive data from theft or accidental damages. Again, content shared within an organization should be prevented from security vulnerabilities. Since Teams is one of the Office 365 components, you get end-to-end security, administrative control, and compliance powered by Office 365. In fact, users can be given privileges such as threat management and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). Advanced Threat Protection feature of Office 365 safeguards Teams from malicious content being uploaded and stored in MS Teams.
Ever since Teams was launched, it goes through frequent updates to make the tool more robust and user-friendly. For example, the “Tab” in Teams is a great enhancement and the purpose of it is to build an area in your team site to allow even more collaboration on documents or data from other connected Office 365 services or third-party applications. This means that the most frequently used applications, documents or websites that reside in the Teams platform can be tabbed on the home page for instant access and Teams supports 200+ such applications. This can help people quickly navigate to the most needed applications or documents directly from Teams.
Having said that, MS Teams is emerging as a major player in the intra-office communication space and is a teamwork hub that enables & streamlines enterprise communication and collaboration. Moreover, the ability of Teams to extend to integrate with any third-party application makes it the only enterprise-ready collaboration framework today. All of these characteristics make Teams a champion workplace software and highly preferred over Slack.
