While the State and Local Governments and Education (SLED) markets are notorious for being behind the curve when it comes to adopting new technologies, this is radically changing as more and more agencies and organizations are adopting Microsoft Teams as their secure collaboration solution.
With an uncertain economy, SLED budgets are tight, so it is essential that those responsible for keeping increasingly digital government and education networks and platforms running be as efficient as possible.
State and local governments and school districts are truly the pillars of American communities, and are tasked with ensuring public safety, service, and educational programs are fully supported, and despite the urgency the pandemic created in terms of hybrid models, it is still a struggle for many to adopt the most up to date platforms to better serve the public.
One of the most significant opportunities for improvement is moving to a collaboration platform that consolidates legacy telephony functions integrated with productivity applications – to deliver truly incredible customer experiences.
Microsoft Teams is gaining headway as a powerful hub for team collaboration in Office 365.
At ConnX, we are big fans of Teams as it masterfully integrates the people, content, and tools teams need to be more engaged and productive, and our SLED clients agree. They’ve experienced the benefits!
Because Teams is built on Office 365, it integrates with already familiar Office apps and services. Many state and local agencies and educational institutions have been using Office 365 for decades, and already have access to Microsoft Teams as part of their Office 365 subscription – without using it.
