The study was carried out across a wide range of industries within both the public and private sectors and included over 260 customers.

Firstly, Microsoft wanted to know what challenges companies faced with their current collaboration tools. These challenges included problems with collaboration between multiple locations, wanting better innovation, inefficient connections between mobile employees, and security issues.

Empowering Employees with Microsoft Teams

Having then used Microsoft Teams, organisations soon realised the benefits of this effective communication and collaboration tool. The study revealed multiple benefits of using Teams, including:

Reduced time in online meetings

With less time spent on set-up and audio checks, employees made better use and reduced their time spent in online meetings.

Resources readily available in a cloud-based location

Having files and resources readily available in the cloud saves time on sending documents back and forth between employees, improving time-to-decision making.

Improved security and compliance

Having everything in one place can improve security and compliance when compared to on-site solutions, meaning there is less downtime and less maintenance required.

No switching between applications

Teams has a range of applications within the tool, meaning employees don’t have to switch between programmes and everything can be done in one place.

Less travelling for face-to-face meetings

By making use of the high quality audio-visual, there was less need for travelling to face-to-face meetings as everything could be discussed and demonstrated through Microsoft Teams.
