Whether working in office or in a remote environment, internal communication is essential for productivity and daily operations. There are many collaboration tools on the market to help keep your teams connected and on track. When it comes to an all-in-one solution, Microsoft Teams is best out there.

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration tool that gives you the ability to work together and share information via a common space. Here are a few reasons we recommend Teams over other options.

Better User Experience

While any new tool comes with somewhat of a learning curve, Teams is super simple and user friendly. The interface is intuitive and clutter-free, making it easier than ever to chat, create channels, share files, and keep everyone on the same page.

Direct Routing Capabilities

One standout feature of Teams is its Direct Routing capabilities. This means it can be used as a full-fledged business phone system. Direct Routing gives your business the flexibility of choosing your own provider for cheaper call rates, more flexibility, and better support.

Office 365 Integration

If you’re already using Office 365 for your business, Teams integrates perfectly with the application. You can launch meetings from Outlook or Exchange Calendar, or easily work together on Word documents.

Advanced Cybersecurity

Microsoft Teams is built with the best cyber security standards possible, featuring two-factor authentication and encrypted data. Requiring multiple credentials for authentication drastically increases the security of user logins. Additionally, stored data is encrypted in both transit (while being sent) and at rest (stored in a folder on the cloud).

Higher Storage Limits

Microsoft Teams offers a storage limit of 1 TB per organization for Essentials and Premium plans, with an upload limit of 15 GB per file. Additionally, you can use the “search” option in Teams to browse unlimited messages. Competitors allow less total space, even in the highest-priced plans. And, most other tools store fewer than 10,000 messages.

Best Video Conferencing Abilities

Microsoft Teams allows up to 80 participants to be present on the call, while other collaboration tools put a limit on the number or participants—many allowing less than 20.
