As team collaboration tools and services become ever more important in facilitating teamwork and communication within organisations of all sizes, recent reports claim that Microsoft could be adding a free tier to their Microsoft Teams service.
Microsoft Teams is a digital platform that combines conversations, workplace chat, meetings, notes, apps and attachments in one place. The service integrates with Microsoft’s Office 365 productivity suite, including Microsoft Office and Skype, as well as featuring extensions that can integrate with non-Microsoft products, to create collaborative communities.
According to recent reports, the latest developer preview version of Teams has several references to a ‘freemium tier’, which would see a free offering of the service to those who aren’t Office 365 subscribers. While the free version of Teams will have certain limitations, there has never been a better time to see if Office 365 is the right fit for you or your organisation’s needs. This is particularly important if you are a sole user of Skype for Business – now is a great time to make the switch as Microsoft are beginning to take action with the aim of making Teams a one-stop-shop for all your meeting needs within Office 365, including rolling Skype for Business into Teams.
At eStorm we work closely with you to determine how your business can benefit from Microsoft Office 365 solutions, as well as help you to choose the right plan that makes sense for you and your needs.
