Understanding the Why?

Guidance for following Teams best practices.

Many service providers will tell you they can help you get Teams turned on (so can we), and many service providers will tell you they can support training on how to use Teams (so can we). However, many service providers will not tell you “Why using Teams” is better than alternative solutions (we can). 

This is a big gap, and we believe that if end users don’t know the ‘why,’ they are less likely to adopt new behaviors let alone change their routine.  We’ve come up with a new series, answering the whys and giving guidance for Teams best practices.  Each why is depicted as a decision tree to help you navigate your options and align to best practices in different scenarios.

 It's in the Research 

To quantify the benefits of Teams, Forrester Consulting conducted a Total Economic Impact study of Microsoft Teams, commissioned by Microsoft.  Forrester interviewed and surveyed over 260 customers using Teams in a wide range of industries, spanning financial services to education. 

For a standard 5,000 user organization, the study reported the following benefits:

Driving improvements across every depart

From Customer Service to HR, Sales & Marketing to Engineering and Operations, Teams is helping organizations do more, faster.

While we love that we no longer live inside our email inbox, companies are using Teams to do big things that impact their business. Feature releases are so 2017, with Teams, it is about improving process and changing how we work to impact meaningful business scenarios. If you have scenarios that need a collaboration boost, give us a call to speak with our Teams experts, in the meantime, consider these:

Incident Management: Warehouses can be dangerous and when accidents happen, time is of the essence. Organizations are using Teams to pull together Operations, HR and Legal personal, both locally and at HQ, to make sure that the proper response is initiated quickly, and safety remains the top priority.

Customer Service: Bad customer service is never a good idea. Organizations are using Teams to speed up issue resolution, provide visibility into customer escalations and enable continuous knowledge sharing between shifts.

Sales & Marketing: Proposals, presentations, reports, the back and forth emailing of documents can feel out of control. With Teams, organizations are working in real-time on the same documents, sharing feedback, coordinating tasks and managing timelines without sending a single email.
