2020 is a year we will all remember. Traditional work has shifted from office-based to home-based, and it is unclear exactly how much that trend will reverse as the world recovers from the pandemic. By changing to meet the new demands, companies stay relevant, and teamwork and collaboration have never been more important as focal points for this new era.
However, many companies struggle to meet these new demands. Distractions of work-from-home situations, remote meetings, and distance-based conversations all present significant challenges to those who need to keep their businesses growing. IT systems and their managers have become pivotal in overcoming these obstacles, and CONNECT offers a way for them to manage both workload and workforce to achieve peak productivity.
What Is CONNECT?
CONNECT is a productivity framework that fits seamlessly into Microsoft Teams. It allows collaboration and communication on a global scale through a wide selection of features that immerses employees in an interactive experience that offers on-demand content, socialization opportunities, and functions as a gateway to enterprise solutions. Whether employees are working from home, working remotely within an office building, or are at the next desk, CONNECT offers ways for them to integrate their workflow and contributions with ease.
CONNECT offers a browser format as well as a desktop app and Teams Mobile App, so no matter where employees are, they can always stay connected. Most importantly, however, CONNECT can be personalized to every employee’s individual needs to create a thriving community of work that becomes a complete, immersive experience. Users can subscribe to their own choice of content delivered through Teams and can receive on-demand personalized announcements, messages, articles, videos, and much more.
CONNECT Improves Teamwork
Successful teamwork hinges on collaboration, and CONNECT supports teamwork by creating an environment in which employees can share tasks, discuss their contributions and reach out to others for resources. A few of the ways CONNECT supports an integrated, active team are:
- Smart Bots carry out operational tasks through interaction with applications
- Ability to retrieve and share data within the chat
- Notifications for pending tasks and quick action resolution options
- Relevant content delivered based on personalized priorities and choices
- Built-in Intranet content pages from Stream, Delve, SharePoint, Planner, Power BI, CRM, and other third-party apps
- Enterprise social capabilities such as Yammer, Facebook Workplace, and Twitter
CONNECT offers a convenient, centralized interface that is simple for users to navigate. The tab-based format allows intuitive and easy location of important information, supporting productivity for all users. Tabs are broken down into easy-to-understand categories such as Home, Social, Events & Training, Stream, and People Search, making it simple for employees to find what they are looking for quickly.
CONNECT was awarded the 2020 Teams App Award in Microsoft’s Annual Teams Hackathon.
