Why You Should Use Microsoft Teams to Collaborate Remotely

As COVID-19 continues to keep people working remotely, it’s becoming increasingly important to help your team feel connected. With isolation, social distancing, and stay-at-home mandates, it’s easy for individuals to feel disconnected and discouraged.

Giving your team the resources to stay connected can help. Microsoft Teams can be one of those resources.

Not only can Teams help you continue to run your business as smoothly as possible during this challenging and uncertain time, but they can also bring your team together. With features like one-on-one chats or instant group messages, colleagues can easily keep in touch—making up for the missed water cooler conversations. Meetings can also run smoothly with sharing features and chat windows so everyone can be included. Collaboration is also made easy on Teams, where multiple people can work together on a single project.

How we use Microsoft Teams

Team Collaboration - Microsoft Partner - Imaginet

At Imaginet, we’ve learned to work remotely for years. We have had almost zero impact on our operations due to 1) most of our client projects being done remotely, 2) most of our employees are used to delivering quality work from home/remote, and 3) we are all within the North American time zones. We have Teams to thank for keeping us connected during these unprecedented times.

Teams allow for full voice, video, chat, and whiteboard collaboration and, most importantly, the ability to federate with other organizations using Teams for a seamless collaboration experience. We can deliver workshops with clients and facilitate requirements gathering and UX/UI sessions. Video, screen sharing, and virtual whiteboards help to make the meetings interactive and high-value. Teams’ video meetings are especially effective for driving engagement and collaboration. When all parties are live on video, all parties stay much more engaged in the meeting topic as compared to conference calls, where many people multi-task and are less engaged. Learn how Teams enabled us to continue to run smoothly in “A Day in the Life of Working Remote at Imaginet.”
