In the current climate, most organisations are now being required to work remotely. In order for businesses to stay productive, they need the ability to collaborate seamlessly with colleagues and other contacts.
The good news is, Microsoft have launched a 6 month free trial for commercial customers of Microsoft Teams in CSP, which can be provisioned for up to 1,000 seats to ensure Teams can be deployed to the entire organisation.
What are the benefits of Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams streamlines and brings together all your collaboration tools including chats, shared files and online meetings into one single app and interface. Being a cloud-based solution, Teams enables you to access information from any place on any device, increasing efficiency and enabling you to embrace the true benefits of cloud, whilst operating enterprise-grade security and compliance.
- Chat- Communicate across geographies, languages, and organisations
- Meetings- Intelligent cloud solution enables you to conduct meetings from anywhere, with video, content sharing, digital whiteboard, notes and chat
- Calling- Connect with anyone through Phone System, Calling Plans, or Direct Routing
- Integrated apps- Teams brings all the Office 365 services together in one workspace, removing the need to toggle between apps or search for information
What's included in the trial?
For each license assigned to a user in the trial, they will be provisioned additional back-end services that enable them to experience the full value of Microsoft Teams. This includes:
- Exchange Foundation • Flow for Office 365 Plan 1 • Forms • Microsoft Planner • Microsoft Whiteboard • Microsoft Teams (Teams1, Teams IW) • Office Online • PowerApps for Office 365 Plan 1 • SharePoint Online Kiosk • Stream • Sway
This offer is available to any customer who doesn’t already have O365 OR have O365 profiles without Teams (office 365 ProPlus, Office 365 Business, Exchange online plan 1 & 2, Dynamics).
