Microsoft Teams consultancy services for the future of collaborative working

Microsoft Teams consultancy services from Content+Cloud will give you the support you need to fully embed new ways of working.

As hybrid working becomes the model of choice for many organisations, Teams offers not only a hub for productivity and collaboration – it’s also becoming integral to engagement and culture. With some of the world’s leading experts in Microsoft 365 technologies on our team, Content+Cloud can help you get the fullest value from Teams and transform how your people work.

How Microsoft Teams services support teamwork transformation

The face of work has changed forever. The hybrid model – a blend of office-based and remote working – is here to stay, bringing the best of both to our working lives. Research from Microsoft shows that while 73% of employees want flexible work options, 67% want more in-person time with their teams. Meeting these expectations is now critical.

Organisations must ensure their employees are able to connect, to engage and have everything they need to do their work, whether remotely or in the office. How do you foster an organisational culture in this new way of working? How do you take the best tech features of remote working and make them part of every employee’s experience?

Guiding your transformation with Microsoft Teams consultants

Microsoft Teams is the solution of choice for organisations embracing remote and hybrid working. It enables access to chat, calling, meetings, documents and line-of-business applications all from one app, while its calls and meeting-room technologies will further shape the future of work.

At Content+Cloud we have vast experience in making Teams work for organisations of all types and at all stages of digital transformation. Our Microsoft Teams services will help establish Teams as an integral part of your working processes and culture, bringing your people closer together, no matter where they are.

Productivity powered by Microsoft 365

Teams gives your employees a single pane for everyday activity such as chat, meeting and collaboration. But it’s so much more than that. For example, you can streamline inefficient processes and workflows with integrated apps built on Microsoft’s Power Platform.

Seamless hybrid working

Imagine delivering the same experience to all your users. Teams doesn’t just improve the experience of remote employees. Teams devices and associated tech mean the best features of digital working can be brought into the physical environment too.

Greater employee engagement

The hybrid office will require a digital-first engagement strategy – and Teams is key to its delivery. Not only does it keep people connected, but it also allows integration with solutions such as Workplace Analytics, Yammer, Viva and your SharePoint intranet. Wellbeing tools, company information and workplace-wide collaboration are just a click away.

Prepare for the future of work with our Microsoft Teams consultancy service

Whether by choice or necessity, the pace of digital transformation has accelerated for many organisations we work with. We’re now helping them prepare for a future where the highest quality of hybrid working is standard. Underpinned by Microsoft technologies, their digital strategies centre on priorities such as innovation, agility, security and compliance, automation and efficiency.

Teams enables all of this, providing the environment to foster a modern working culture. What’s more, Content+Cloud’s close relationship with Microsoft gives us early knowledge of its upcoming technologies, meaning we can help you be ready to take advantage of the next game-changing feature.

Here are just a few of the ways that Teams will transform your workplace.

Simplified processes and tasks through apps

Bring business apps into one place and cut time and effort from your processes with Power Platform, integrated within Teams.

  • Power Apps: create apps for business tasks with a studio embedded in Teams and solution templates
  • Power Automate: speed up workflows with intelligent automation, made simple by easy-to-use templates and designer within the Power Automate app for Teams
  • Power Virtual Agents: serve users with the personalised information delivered by bots created in an embedded studio

Richer meeting experiences for all

Teams brings richer meeting experiences to attendees online and in physical locations, through smart physical tech and intelligent virtual features.

  • Teams Rooms: Boost productivity with high-spec, centrally managed meeting spaces that work for your employees whether they’re in the room or remote
  • Whiteboards: Take notes, sketch visuals and record ideas in real time, whether in your physical meeting room or remotely, through Microsoft Whiteboard on a Surface Hub or via the Teams client, or use the content camera feature in Microsoft Teams Rooms to bring your physical whiteboard into the virtual meeting
  • Background Effects and Together mode: Recreate the communal experience of meetings with Teams’ different attendee views and allow employees to blur their backgrounds or use built-in or corporate background images for a professional look in any meeting
  • Breakout Rooms: Break up your attendees into smaller focused sessions and bring them back together with user-controlled or automatic groupings
  • Presenter Mode and View Controls: Optimise your presentations with intelligent and customisable views for PowerPoint
  • Recording and recap: Revisit video, transcripts and associated documentation in the meeting channel

Integrated phone network

Take advantage of the powerful Cloud-based telephony provided by Teams Voice. Users can make, receive and transfer calls to and from landlines and mobile phones on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) in Microsoft Teams.

  • Streamlined and integrated: Bring all call and meeting capabilities in one place, accessible from any linked device
  • Reduced maintenance costs: Reduce dependencies on legacy PBX phone systems, such as reduced expenditure on equipment and maintenance
  • Scalable and flexible: Because everything’s hosted in the Cloud, if you need to scale up or move locations, you can do so efficiently and affordably adding on solutions such as compliant call recording, Attendant Console and call-centre functionality

Greater accessibility

Teams enables employees to chat, call, meet and collaborate wherever they are and whatever device they’re using. It also provides a range of accessibility features to give every user the best experience possible – here are just a few.

Meetings:

  • Live captioning
  • Blurred or image background options
  • Background noise reduction
  • Virtual hand raising

Chat:

  • Do Not Disturb mode
  • Customisable reading and viewing experience
  • Audio messaging on mobile Teams and dictation on desktop

Collaborate:

  • Immersive reader for documents
  • Accessibility checking tools in Microsoft Office content

Improved employee engagement and experience

Make more of Teams as a hub for all your employees do. Connect them, inform them and empower them with the full capabilities of Microsoft 365.

  • Engaging information: Place your company’s SharePoint intranet site just a click away via the integrated app, giving your employees instant access to the digital workplace
  • Productivity and wellbeing: Embed Workplace Analytics to give you a better understanding of how your employees are working
  • Social connections: Integrate Yammer to provide access to communities of interest and shared knowledge via your organisation’s social network
  • Personalised and relevant information: Through Microsoft Viva, you can surface learning, wellbeing, knowledge and news content to employees via Teams
