Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, employees must now work from home where possible. This has encouraged many businesses to overcome hurdles in relation to maintaining productivity and communication when employees are not in the office.
To enable communication among employees, many are using a Video Conferencing Solution to allow teams to meet regularly. Many are weighing up their options as to what solution works best for them, leaving many choosing between Microsoft Teams and Zoom?
Why Should Your Business Choose Microsoft Teams
Historically, Zoom does not have a trustworthy track record when it comes to privacy issues. Zoom was originally created as a consumer product, which might be the reason they had a poor response to security issues among the business/corporate sector. Whereas, Teams has is developed for the corporate sector and therefore has security and compliance as part of its core offering.
There have been a number of security concerns in relation to Zoom, especially since it has grown in recent weeks. Until recently, a data-mining feature allowed participants to access LinkedIn profile data about other users, without permission.
Integration is at the core of any corporate communications platform. It allows employees to work more productively and broadens the potential for the platform. When compared to Zoom, Microsoft Teams can operate with its integrated Office 365 apps and more than 70 Teams integrations.
Communication excels when you enable Video Conferencing., Instant Messaging and Voice Calls. Enable these various communication channels by embracing Microsoft Teams. Allowing your team to utilise channels that work best for them. If there is no need for a face-to-face conversation an instant message can be jsut as productive, thus saving you team time!
Zoom is primarily a Video Conferencing tool and does not have the same capabilities as Microsoft Teams.
In relation to pricing, the most beneficial aspect of Teams is access to the Office 365 suite.
Whereas Zoom has no additional tools in its paid version.
