When the pandemic first began earlier this year and employees began working from home, it necessitated major changes to many organizations in terms of workplace modernization. Suddenly, we needed all sorts of new solutions for meeting and collaborating on projects remotely.
At first, these changes were believed to be temporary – many of us thought we could ride out COVID-19 for a few weeks, then return to the office and continue working like we always have. But as it’s become clear that we’re permanently entering an era of “remote everything,” we’re starting to see some more substantive, long-term changes to the ways companies do business.
Many of these changes are powered by Microsoft 365. Employees today often spend all day, every day collaborating with their teammates in Microsoft Teams, and they benefit greatly from the full breadth and depth of Microsoft 365, which offers a wide range of productivity apps and experiences that help them get work done. According to Microsoft, M365 and Teams recently passed 115 million daily active users, a figure that is still climbing.
“Understanding where our customers are headed is a big part of how we’re shaping our future,” said Tom McKee, chief information officer at Kennametal. “We couldn’t do that without a corresponding digital, agile, and mobile workplace built on Microsoft 365.”
Added Denise Owens, senior IT director at Office Depot: “No matter what part of the business we support or where we are located, we use Teams and the rest of the Microsoft 365 platform to best communicate with customers and engage with our associates.”
It’s clear that Microsoft 365 has the potential to streamline everything your workforce does, especially now with so many people working remotely.
