Over six months on from the start of lockdown, restrictions are gradually lifting. As of August, businesses were able to decide whether to reopen. Many businesses are seriously considering their options going forward. The realisation that home working is a viable option for many staff is changing the way businesses are thinking about their future strategy.
Many tools have been utilised to help employees work effectively home, the most popular choice being Microsoft Teams. With its enhanced collaboration features, such as the virtual whiteboard, meeting functionality, and file sharing, it is easy to see why. So, as the world reopens, will there still a place for Teams in the workplace?
Looking forward there seem to be new options for businesses as they consider the next steps out of lockdown. Some may choose to move to an entirely remote workforce, permanently, and move out of their physical offices. However, there is also the option to create a hybrid solution where employees can either work from home or the office as required. Alternatively, only those staff who must be in the office will come in and everyone else will permanently work from home.
With staff continuing to be separated in this way it is clear that Teams will very much has a place for companies as we move forward, even those who do decide to reopen their offices at all.
Whilst Teams has enabled employees to collaborate and has allowed internal office conversations and meetings to continue, calling customers and suppliers externally has been more of a challenge! For many the only option has been to revert to using mobile phones, which is not very satisfactory – especially if they are personal devices.

For office based, remote, and hybrid remote workforces, Call2Teams™ bridges the gap between Microsoft Teams and a company’s telephone system.
