Microsoft’s communications and collaboration solutions more important than ever


The Covid-19 pandemic impressively demonstrates the importance of seamless communication and collaboration solutions to work together on projects.

One of the most common solutions is Microsoft Teams. It is intuitive and easily combines the most important tools and content for collaboration in one client and on all devices. Many companies therefore rely on a “Microsoft Teams First” strategy. They often encounter the same question as when using SharePoint: How can projects with internal and external partners be processed in a uniform, secure and even more efficient manner?

At AskMeWhy, we are well aware of this question – and other sticking points: “Microsoft Teams, Planner or PowerApps are very limited, especially when it comes to complex issues, such as in the regulated financial environment.”

Therefore we offers tailor-made Microsoft Teams solutions that use the existing Microsoft 365 technology and expand its functionality.  As a result, even demanding processes and existing systems can be integrated directly into the Teams Client.
