Engage, communicate, and collaborate from anywhere, with Microsoft Teams from SCC AVS
Last year’s sudden shift to remote has required most organisations to deploy collaboration solutions, to help staff stay connected and engaged. However in many cases, quick-fix tools were implemented as a tactical move, simply to keep the business functioning in an unpredictable situation.
Today those same organisations now need to stop and reconsider how their decisions can be incorporated into a wider collaboration strategy. The latest generation of workflow tools like Microsoft Teams offer capabilities that far surpass those of traditional unified communication platforms and are far better suited to the demands of an ever-evolving hybrid workforce. A hub for teamwork, Teams brings together meetings, chat, calling, Office 365 apps, and third-party tools in one place with enterprise-grade security. Users get a unique end-to-end meeting experience that humanises face-to-face interaction, with a solution that meets the critical requirements for today’s modern business needs.
Solving the integration conundrum
Technologies that were once siloed such as telephony, video-conferencing, and persistent messaging, can now be incorporated into single platforms like Microsoft Teams which offers significant opportunities for 3rd party integration.
Entire business workflows can be mapped and wrapped around these new platforms, to improve business processes and efficiencies. This offers an enormous benefit to an organisation, but only if implemented correctly. At the same time, existing communication technologies such as video conferencing and telephony now have to integrate with these platforms.
At SCC AVS , our approach to Microsoft Teams integration is driven by your business requirements.
Typically this may include:
- Using Teams as your collaboration platform of choice
- Integration into any existing telephony or collaboration hardware
- Teams as your preferred user workflow
- 3rd-party platform support
- Existing license agreements and service contract commitments
By partnering with all major Teams integration partners, we’re able to take an agnostic route in designing and deploying an integrated solution. We take into account the above factors, and offer a holistic and cohesive approach to creating a Teams strategy that’s right for your organisation. From personal headsets and webcams through to the largest collaboration and meeting spaces, we focus on the complete collaboration requirement. We also assess and advise on Teams specific network design and performance, security, and personal device deployment and management.
Navigating the complexities of hybrid work
With some employees returning to the workplace, others remain at home, forcing 66% of business decision makers to consider redesigning physical spaces to better accommodate hybrid work environments . Organisations must now not only consider integration capabilities, but rethink how they use office space and ask what the office provides to support the new hybrid workplace. For example:
- How do you equip your meeting spaces to drive employee connectivity?
- Is every room equipped for collaboration in a cost-effective way?
- How do you provide and manage headsets, webcams, and other personal devices?
- How do you successfully drive adoption across a disparate workforce?
- What security layers have you added to ensure conversations and data are secure?
- How do you keep users updated on the latest platform capabilities?
- How is your network optimised to support new real-time service demands?
- What does hybrid working mean for your call centre?
- How do you reach out to remote staff in a reliable and engaging way?
