Microsoft Teams is a widely used communication and collaboration platformTeams is available in most Microsoft 365 Business subscriptions and is therefore accessible to most organisations.  

Many businesses start using Teams without the help of an IT consultant. This generally leads to a failure to appreciate the full capabilities of the software and widespread under utilisation.

Labyrinth can help your business adopt Teams by structuring it properly from the start, preventing users from going rogue with Teams creation and providing the necessary training. 

The core features and benefits of Microsoft Teams are:

Instant Messaging: In the modern workplace we send far too many emails, particularly to those that we work very closely with. Inboxes are often congested which can lead to responses being delayed or important communications being missed. Microsoft Teams allows users to chat in real time with individuals or teams of people, both inside and outside of the organisation.

Video Conferencing: At the click of a button, you can host or join video conferences with individuals or groups. These can be triggered instantly or scheduled using the Outlook integration.

Microsoft 365 Integration: Teams integrates with Microsoft 365 and SharePoint. Each “team” within the app has a linked SharePoint site where any associated files are stored. Teams access is also managed through Microsoft 365 groups which control both members of the team and access to the linked SharePoint site.

Collaboration: Through Teams, users can collaborate on Microsoft Office files with group members and SharePoint users who have access. This means colleagues can work on a file simultaneously and see changes made in real time.

App store: Microsoft Teams has an app store supporting many integrations with other Microsoft tools and third-party vendor systems.

Voice: Through the Microsoft 365 Business Voice add-in, you can turn your Microsoft Teams system into a telecommunications platform. Click here for more information.

Your Microsoft Teams Experience Starts Here

Our approachable staff will use plain English and not confuse you with technical jargon. We will never make you sign a long contract and we guarantee to respond within an agreed timeframe. And we will never oversell and will always work on the principle of ‘best advice’.

We have partnerships with major suppliers such as Microsoft, Watchguard, Dell and so on, and as such we can offer both the hardware and software necessary to deliver the support, services and solutions you need to run your business. We aim to be the single point of contact for supplying these products and services, as well as taking on the responsibility of managing these assets once in place.

As we always try to make clear, Labyrinth Technology provides IT support to our clients so that they no longer need to waste time dealing with IT problems. Instead, they can focus on making their businesses succeed. And as they succeed they do so confident that our services are fully scalable. We regularly review the service provided to our clients, both through data gathered from our best in class monitoring systems, as well as meetings with our customers. We can easily amend the products and services applicable to the contract, or can even move a client to entirely new support package.

We can help with the move AND the security needed as well! We’ve helped businesses work in a more agile fashion, including supporting remote workers by ensuring an on-demand supply of computers, along with networking, Wi-Fi and cloud facilities. We will also ensure that the software needed to make your remote workforce remains productive, as well as totally secure. Indeed we recently carried out a project to dial in to all of the home Wi-Fi routers of a client’s staff to determine the strength of security in place.

Our services are primarily aimed at business located with their main offices in the Greater London area, but our services are available for multi-site clients with locations across the UK.
