Transform Meetings with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Teams Rooms

Microsoft Teams facilitates a shared workspace where employees can chat, meet, share files and work with business apps. Microsoft Teams is a place to create and make decisions using many of the collaboration and communication solutions with Microsoft 365.

In today’s modern workplace, teams come together from different corners of the globe in order to work together and get things done. Microsoft Teams helps those teams keep everyone engaged and creates an inclusive experience for people in the room and remote viewers. 

The Microsoft Teams Rooms app brings a new content camera feature that enables users to intelligently include a traditional whiteboard into their Teams meeting.

Powered by Artificial Intelligence in the Microsoft cloud, a dedicated content camera intelligently detects, crops and frames the in-room whiteboard and shares its content with remote meeting participants. Even when a presenter moves in front of the whiteboard remote participants will be able to see the content right through them.

The top four benefits for implementing Microsoft Teams: 

  1. Reduced number of meetings and duration: Online meetings conducted over Teams are reliable and of very high audio-video quality. As a result, employees spend less time addressing setup and call-quality issues, and more time interacting. The total time savings equal $6.9 million. 
  2. Improved collaboration and information sharing: With Teams features like co-authoring, integrated file storage, and internal directory, information workers can effectively and efficiently collaborate in real time, saving up to 4 hours per week. The potential savings equal more than $14.3 million. 
  3. Less switching between applications: Access to 3rd party and line-of-business apps inside Teams from any device benefits all workers, especially remote workers. This creates better employee cohesion and a common corporate culture across locations saving more than 1 hour per week. The total savings are nearly $4.8 million. 
  4. Reduced downtime: When resources are available in one cloud-based location, downtime is reduced by 14.6% and complexity is lowered, making security and compliance easier. Compared to on-premise solutions, the time savings are worth $258,000 across information and Firstline Workers.
