Practising what we preach
We make it our mission to be experts on every solution we deliver, and we’ve got the awards and accreditations to prove it. But we also like to practise what we preach. That's why we use Microsoft Teams for the majority of our internal communications.
TSG was an early adopter of Microsoft Teams, having accessed the beta version as a Microsoft partner before its public release. Thanks to Microsoft Teams, our teams can work more collaboratively and we’ve cut down on team and even business-wide email.
We also use Teams to collaborate externally; from our housing team dedicated to sharing knowledge and best-practice amongst our valued social housing customers to teams with partners and suppliers, we’ve streamlined all of our communications!
Recognising the potential in Microsoft Teams
Teams has a number of business cases, and can also be used across entire organisations, within and across different departments. We’re helping customers to get the most out of this solution.
Our housing association customer, Adra, identified Teams as a transformational tool and turned to TSG to not only roll out the platform, but to deliver training to help all users get the most out of the platform.
