‘You’re on mute’ – The three word phrase synonymous with video conferencing in the last year.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced us away from the traditional office and stopped us from being able to see loved ones. Fortunately, cloud-based communication solutions have enabled us to continue to meet with our clients and colleagues as well as our family and friends during these challenging times.
In the business world, the two most popular solutions are Microsoft Teams and Zoom (How I wish I invested in this back in February).
The big question though, which is better?
Microsoft Teams is the successor to Skype for Business and combines the ability to conduct video and voice calls and instant messaging with seamless integration with the Microsoft suite of applications. This allows for seamless collaboration, backups as well as file search, and has therefore become the one-stop solution for many organizations. Especially as Teams is included as part of Microsoft’s business standard and business premium offerings. If you have one of these subscriptions and are not yet using it in any capacity, I would highly recommend trying it out. To find out more, check out our TEKKTALK Teams webinar on our YouTube channel.
