Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that helps companies stay connected when working remotely, traveling, or doing business in an office setting. It helps people all over the world do projects cooperatively in many different fields. One of the many people Teams has helped is our client, Colleen, who is part of a non-profit organization in the Bay Area.
Before making the switch to Teams, Colleen was struggling with communication between her and her other team members. The software she was relying on at the time was outdated, making online meetings difficult, and messages had a tendency to get lost in the workflow. All she wanted was to be able to work with the other people in her organization in a way that was smooth and problem-free. After all, she shouldn’t have to jump through hoops just to communicate with her team.
Luckily, that’s when we met Colleen. After reading some of our articles, Colleen decided to reach out to see if we could help with her problem. She explained to us what was going on, letting us know how frustrated and let down she felt and asked if we knew of a better way to do online collaboration. We let her know about all the opportunities available with Teams, and what features it offers.
When making her decision, Colleen told us that she was especially impressed by Team’s group chat capabilities. With this program, she would be able to save chats, tag people in important messages, and make announcements all in one place. She was also excited about the video and audio call options available.
We let Colleen know that we were up to the task of handling her managed IT services, including her use of Teams. We guaranteed her that she would always have access to tech support, cybersecurity measures, and technology consulting so that she wouldn’t have to worry about her organization’s IT infrastructure.
After this, Colleen felt confident in her ability to communicate with the other members of her non-profit. As a whole, they were more productive than ever, doing lots of good for the community and dealing with much less frustration than before.
Can you relate to Colleen’s initial frustration? Are you looking for a better, more effective way to communicate with those in your business? If so, switching to Teams may be the best option for you as well.

My philosophy when starting OTT was I wanted to create a place that I would want to work at (fun and friendly.) Where there was no corporate politics and we could just do our job fixing things and helping people. We can help people with their technology and not be arrogant or condescending to people. We can actually make a difference in peoples lives and not just say it but do it.
