PART 3 of a 5-PART SERIES
Since the end of January 2020, Microsoft has seen a staggering 500 percent increase in Teams meetings, calling, and conferences, and a 200 percent increase in Teams usage on mobile devices.* Organizations of all sizes are either already using Microsoft Teams or on the path to migrating to it. Those organizations are already achieving the benefits from this unified communication and collaboration (UC&C) platform like the ability for chat, voice and video calling, meetings, file sharing, application integration, etc. However, there are organizations who haven’t migrated yet because they need help or, they are on Skype for Business-Online and need to make this transition quickly.
At Poly, we understand what you’ll need and the value in providing expert guidance to help organizations with the move to Microsoft Teams. In the first part of this series, we covered what important considerations IT Managers should take into account before migrating their organization to Microsoft Teams. In the second installment, we provided general best practices to ensuring your company’s network is reviewed and ready to handle the traffic and operational rigor required for collaborating with Teams. In this blog, we’re excited to announce Poly’s four Professional Services to help our customers on their transformational journey.
