Huge increase in team chat applications
Microsoft Teams has never been so popular. Even before the COVID-19 crisis the use of team chat applications rose from 2.4% to 33.3%. (Mocrosoft.com).
We have been utilising the tool for all our team meetings and daily update meetings. It’s user friendly (you don’t have to be an IT expert to use it) and it’s great for video calling and screen sharing.
The collaborative, communications tool is free with Office 365 and lately has become a feature of many homes too, providing a platform for virtual socialising. Regular virtual nights with friends and quiz nights seem to be a popular theme with people we know.
If you are considering implementing a collaborative tool such as MS Teams and need further information about working remotely then please call us. We are here to help!
