The price to upgrade business communications and digital technology is not as great as you might think. You probably already have some apps and services you can use now and just don’t know it. Microsoft Teams for example. With the end of Skype for Business scheduled for July 31 2021, Teams is your replacement for video conferencing, messaging and document sharing to name just a few of the features. Microsoft have been busy rolling out updates for Teams over the last few months with the latest additions for break out rooms, meeting recordings saved to stream, transcripts and notes also saved so you will always have your meeting notes to refer back to.
Microsoft have extensive info and guides on setting up your security in Teams and across your organisation.
