Technology For Humans: There’s A More Human Way To Connect With Your Team

If you’re anything like us, your inbox is being inundated with emails every single day. There are the emails that are important – those from the humans in your business, from your clients, from prospective clients. But they’re getting lost in the deluge of spam. There’s got to be a better way to communicate, one that cuts through the noise and allows you to focus.

The good news is, it exists. The better news is, you may already be using it!

Microsoft Teams makes communication so much more human. It’s more than just the fact that messages are brought together into a single, transparent platform that everyone in your business can access to get the details that they need. It’s about more than the fact that you can instantly see who’s available, when, and find the right person to connect with when you need them. It’s even about more than being able to give public praise and kudos to those team members who are going above and beyond.

What we are loving most about Teams is the fact that it’s connected. It’s all in one. You can communicate openly, honestly, and exuberantly, but you can also share the documents, share your OneNote boards and ideas, get feedback through polls, video call people so that you can see their face when you’re talking to them.

Email isn’t going anywhere – it still has it’s uses. But Microsoft Teams is the future of connected communication, and we are right here for it.

The video calling feature makes it easy to have virtual meetings, and sharing information and uploading and downloading files is effortless. Most importantly, is the quality that I experience when using Microsoft Teams.

My favourite thing about Teams is that it offers secure collaboration, both internally and externally. It has tabs that bring almost all your work or your office into one place. It’s basically a virtual office.
