How It Works
The way people work is changing. You can help your customers transform their workforces to meet that change.
Help your SMB customers support remote collaboration, maintain connections, and keep employees productive from anywhere on any device.
Teams integrates existing apps and communication protocols into a unified, interconnected platform—designed for today’s increasingly mobile, global, and social workers. Take a look at some of the numbers behind that growth. Today:
Nearly half of people use social tools at work.
There are four times as many electronic devices per user.
An estimated three in four employees work remotely.
The workforce spans five generations.
The average employee spends 80 percent of their time collaborating.
