Did you know that Office 365 includes Microsoft Teams?

Depending on your Office 365 licenses, you likely already have the Microsoft Teams capability. Due to the current Covid-19 climate, working remotely has become a higher priority, even mandatory in many cases. Microsoft Teams can help ease the transition for both employers and employees.

Communicate and Collaborate

Microsoft Teams enables your organization to communicate and collaborate with each other via instant messaging on an individual or group basis. It also offers an efficient way to schedule and record meetings and calls with full Outlook integration. Teams can be used in any internet browser, computer desktop app or mobile device app , which means you are also connected to your field staff.

Our clients that have Microsoft Office through FIELDBOSS, and are on one of the following Office plans, can download and use Microsoft Teams for easy remote working:

  • Office 365 Business Premium
  • Office 365 Business Essentials
  • Office 365 ProPlus
  • Office 365 E1
  • Office 365 E3
  • Office 365 E5

Customers that have any Office plan other than listed above can use the trial version, Microsoft Teams Commercial Cloud, and we can help provision the necessary license.

New Walkie Talkie Feature

Microsoft will soon be adding a new Walkie Talkie feature to Teams. This new push-to-talk experience enables clear, instant, and secure voice communication over the cloud, turning employee- or company-owned smartphones and tablets into a walkie-talkie. The functionality, built natively into Teams, reduces the number of devices employees must carry, and lowers costs for IT. Unlike analog devices with unsecure networks, customers no longer have to worry about crosstalk or eavesdropping from outsiders.

Implementing Teams is easy.

We helped several of our FIELDBOSS clients get up and running with Teams, and the benefits were realized immediately. Together with your FIELDBOSS cloud-based solution, it’s a great way to connect to the field, and to each other.
