Microsoft Teams has been around for a few years now, but the recent rise in remote working and working from home has seen its popularity increase significantly. Some people see it as a chat app, others see it as a modern version of Skype for Business. The reality is that Teams is so much more. Microsoft Teams is an extremely powerful application that enhances teamwork through enriched collaboration and communication.
Unlike other Microsoft 365 applications that have a legacy to preserve and millions of users to consider, Microsoft Teams has been built from scratch with the modern workplace in mind. This also means that Microsoft Teams introduces a new work behaviour, revolutionising the way we communicate and collaborate.

One of the best features of Teams is how it helps with collaboration. File sharing couldn’t be easier in Teams – see how you can easily share files from your OneDrive or SharePoint. Teams calling and chatting is perhaps the best known feature in Teams, as well as meeting functionality. But did you know that you can host live events in Teams? These are perfect for hosting your own webinars, with presenters and producers in separate locations.
