Microsoft Teams is a great hub for teamwork and collaboration within Microsoft 365.
As tech changes, so has the office structure. From the way we work, plan, and communicate, Teams is an essential tool to assist with your diverse workforce. As you may know, the key features include chat and meetings (voice & video). These are familiar functions we have grown to know, but the user experience of Teams makes it all the easier to pick up quickly! The meeting experience is completely mondernised with Teams.
However, here are some interesting facts you may not know about teams:
- Teams is easy to integrate. This means that Teams can integrate with Microsoft applications (Word, Excel, Power-Bi, etc.) and other applications or services, allowing for a customizable workspace that promotes organisation and teamwork!
- Teams has great security features. With integrated security, Teams security is enterprise-grade.
Those are powerful facts that make it a no-brainer to use Teams. So, the next question is, are you using Teams with your Microsoft 365 subscription?
Based on research conducted by TBSC, many businesses pay for the software they have but do not utilise their licenses due to lack of training or lack of knowing what applications they have access to. With Teams, we have found that 43% of staff are not using their Microsoft Teams app included in their M365 subscription! This means no meetings, no calls, no chats, no collaboration!
Our goal is to help your business fully use your Microsoft license. That way you pay for the software you use and use the software you are paying for. One way to do this is to incorporate Teams usage building. We can offer the facility for showing which parts of Teams are being used and not used and help provide the training to ensure zero waste.
However, we also offer eLearning, included in our Smarter SaaS for M365 product and powered by Bigger Brains. Bigger Brains training courses can increase your productivity by training your workers to the fullest. Not only does Bigger Brains provide FREE training videos (found here) but they have a fully integrated eLearning course that can be easily accessed directly from Teams.
On average, Bigger Brains teachers have over 17 years of experience in their area of expertise, plus experience teaching in a college or corporate environment. View the list of courses here.
Bigger Brains is:
- A uniquely effective library of training courses
- A mobile-friendly online learning platform
- A team of professional educators, trainers, storytellers, comedians, & more
- Eager to help you and your team be more productive
To make the transition from ofﬁce to home ofﬁce easier for your business and employees, we recommend utilizing your software licenses by analyzing and understanding your Teams usage. Not only that, but we advise to take advantage of Bigger Brains training tools to increase your usage to 95%.
By increasing your usage through training and licenses management, not only do you better your remote working strategy and communication, but you will get an increase on your ROI.
