Proof You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks
If you have been following along, Broadview Network’s theme this year has been all about productivity – from technology to training, the Broadview Advantage always ties back to how we can leverage a solution to help you drive business outcomes.
Voice & collaboration – calls, conference calls, “distance meetings”, whatever you call them, they have always been a bit… limited. Either you set up a meeting with a 3rd party application which may or may not support people calling from a landline, or you try to schedule a time and hope they’ll remember to check their calendar the day you’re supposed to call them, we’ve all had issues making a call happen, and when you take a minute to think about it, most of us spend a lot of effort in trying to communicate through these mediums.
So, obviously, calls and meetings like these are important. We have known for a long time that this is a critical pain point that most organizations suffer from in some form.
That’s why we’re so excited about Business Voice through Microsoft 365: finally, there’s an intuitive, reliable collaboration system which ties together voice, email, instant messaging, SharePoint (for those who use it) and more all into one lightweight program which won’t bog down your computer.
Teams, which recently replaced Skype for Business, is the secret sauce that makes this all work. By using this broad integration across so much of Microsoft’s business suite, you can save time by cutting and pasting phone numbers from emails into your Teams Dialpad to make a call that way. You can create virtual meeting rooms to host people who can’t physically attend a meeting (and since it’s all integrated into your PC, you can easily share PowerPoint presentations or files to people who attend remotely). There are genuinely dozens of productivity benefits baked right into the DNA of the Teams platform.
There is so much to be excited for, in fact, that we have decided to host an event just to talk about it. In late January, in partnership with Microsoft and Ingram Micro, we are hosting a wine and cheese event for people who want to learn more about this game-changing technology.
If that sounds like you, we would be very happy to have you! Just click here to register.
If you are interested but not able to make the event, drop us a line anyway; we would love to show you what Teams can do for you and your business.
