Elevating Customer Productivity with Office 365
Microsoft Teams helps companies collaborate faster and more effectively. As we enter a new decade, the workforce is changing drastically, both in demographic and behavioral tendencies. Millennials soon will make up the majority of the workforce and “by 2025, three out of every four workers, globally, will be a millennial,” (source: TIME Magazine). Millennials and Generation Z have a preference for working remotely and utilizing collaboration enabling tools.
Microsoft Teams is a representation of the way that communication has changed the way we work and is set to become the new standard in collaboration and professional communication, posing many new opportunities for enhanced productivity amongst SMBs. Blue Fox Group is helping businesses reinvent themselves and remain relevant with advanced technology, so they can reach higher heights than ever before.
“There are myriad of collaboration tools out there, but the core reason that SMBs will be utilizing Microsoft Teams in the future is that it increases an organization’s capacity to collaborate, but more importantly, they can collaborate securely,” stated Mike Lindsley, Owner of Blue Fox Group. This tool goes far beyond our traditional paradigm of workplace communication, which included emails, office phones, and conference calls. The dominant channels of communication have shifted to a wider array, including, real-time collaboration, private chat, public conversation, audio calls, video calls, and virtual meetings, all of which are encompassed in the Microsoft Teams solution.
The younger players in the workforce, Millennials and Gen Z find this assortment of communication tools to be integral to their success in any organization. This is why Blue Fox Group is leading the charge on the deployment of Microsoft Teams because it is the ideal way to meet the needs of younger employees while simultaneously maximizing the effectiveness of more seasoned workers. “There’s a reason that Microsoft is including emojis and GIFs in the software, they understand who are the power users will be and how businesses need to adapt now, in order to keep attracting top talent in the future,” added Lindsley.
Another key trend amongst SMBs is that more companies are going international. Whether they’re relying on international suppliers and vendors, developers or virtual assistants, the demand for bridging language barriers has proven to be key in keeping businesses ahead of the curve when it comes to collaboration. One of the exciting features within Microsoft Teams is the ability to instantly translate languages in the chat or messaging features, with one-click. “The world economy is going to continue expanding and become more globally interactive,” commented Lindsley. “This is not going to slow down, in fact, it will only speed up.”
Lastly, companies that are concerned with the handling of sensitive information, which is especially important in industries like Financial and Healthcare, can rest assured that Microsoft Teams satisfies the requirements for compliance set by several governing agencies. Businesses that want to increase their capacity for collaboration, innovation and relevance need to take a look at implementing technologies like Microsoft Teams.
