What is Microsoft Teams and How Can it Help My Business?


Microsoft Teams is a comprehensive communications platform that integrates with Microsoft Office 365.


Microsoft Teams is a persistent chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing, online meetings (voice, video and chat), and many more extremely useful features for business communications and lots of integrations with tools you already use today.


How can Microsoft Teams help

Microsoft Teams has a number of amazing features which make it easier to engage and communicate with your team and clients. So here are some helpful things Microsoft Teams can do.



As it holds such a dominate place in the market, every application wants to integrate with Microsoft Teams. Integration with other Microsoft applications are seamless. There is a service called Microsoft Power automate (previously known as Flow) which helps automate steps based on trigger events that happen. In addition to his lots of third-party integrations are available out of the box here is a great article covering some useful ones.

One great feature of Microsoft Teams is its bots. There are over 20 available to choose from that can help increase productivity. For example, you can create polls for your team using the Polly Bot or try out the Stat Bot to deliver scheduled reports based on Google Analytics. This makes it really easy to automate the collection of feedback and be more productive.



As mentioned previously Microsoft Teams integrates seamlessly with your Office 365 subscription, it lets you collaborate whether you’re working from the office or a beach in Italy. You can work together remotely on your latest project without those endless back and forth emails. This helps to really centralise a conversation or the conversational timeline of a project, which are regularly lost in our inboxes.



Working remotely brings with its own challenges and security concerns, but Microsoft provides cutting-edge security and compliance capabilities. All your data is encrypted and Office 365 services and Teams meet compliance standards including ISO27001, the EU Model Clauses, SOC2 and HIPPA. The platform also offers two-factor authentication which allows you to give your Teams accounts the same level of security that your bank uses!
