Quadtech - Microsoft Teams Consultation
As businesses face adversity in a changing and uncertain economic future, there are some that will close, and others that will prosper. Even in the volatile nature of the current economic climate, Quadtech is keen to help businesses continue to not only function but grow. The businesses that will succeed in this crisis are those that don’t see this moment as a once off disruption, but rather as the catalyst to regroup, restructure, and embrace the efficient use of Technology. A question many business owners ask with workers confined to work from home is “how do I manage staff whilst maintaining productivity and collaboration?”
An example of one such technology is Microsoft Teams. Used by over 44 million users daily, Microsoft Teams is a logical progression to enhancing an organisation’s capability. There are some other technologies that deliver a “Teams-Like” experience (Zoom, Slack & Quack), but none offer the full benefits of the Microsoft 365 offering.
So Microsoft, in conjunction with Quadtech, can offer a secure, easy to administer solution at no cost, that offers the following benefits for your organisation:
- Instant Chat & Free Calls and Video conferencing with colleagues and external business contacts.
- See who is working and available at any time of the day.
- Collaboratively share desktop screens, spreadsheets and documents.
- Use Teams has as an internal social media experience for staff morale and keeping in touch.
- Introducing Microsoft Teams - Video
To register for your free Microsoft Teams Consultation, to understand this free offer of support, please call Quadtech on 1300 722 879, or email [email protected]
