    Powering Remote Collaboration with Microsoft Teams

    Regardless of distance, Microsoft Teams provides the tools you need to bring colleagues into the same virtual room. When canceled flights keeps team members on separate continents, or quarantine forces work-at-home, Teams comes to the rescue.

    Because every document the team shares saves to the cloud, team members always have access to the most recent document version. And Microsoft Teams pulls content, tools, and conversations together into a chat-based workspace designed to promote productivity.
