Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, has announced that "Teams now has over 145 million daily active users,” and goes on to say that that figure is, “almost double the number a year ago.”

Here at Cobweb, we’re not surprised at hearing this figure.

While we had a growing number of customers realising the benefits of the Microsoft team hub with its ever-increasing list of communication and collaboration features prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in the spring of last year, the number of customers using Teams expanded dramatically following the requirement to move to remote working.

And with lockdown restrictions now easing, customers are looking ahead to the future.

Nobody is anticipating a return to the full-time office model of the pre-pandemic business world. Enterprise organisations such as JPMorgan Chase and HSBC have announced the introduction of a ‘hybrid’ model moving forward, with some staff office-based and other working remotely, and this flexible approach is expected to be taken up by businesses of all size.

Integrated into Office 365 and Microsoft 365, Teams comes into its own, regardless of where users are based, and allowing teams to work together whenever and in whichever way they want, with its messaging, calling, video meetings, and filesharing features available in one simple service.

If you’d like to talk to us about how Teams could benefit your business - whether your workforce will be returning to the office full-time, whether you’re planning on implementing a hybrid working model, or perhaps even continuing with your workers fully remotely-based - the Cobweb team is here to help.
