Powell Teams enhances the adoption and user-experience of Microsoft Teams

Powell Software is launching its new Microsoft Teams app that transforms Microsoft Teams usage through an enhanced user experience and comprehensive governance features.

Powell Teams was inspired by the needs of our users who manage an ever-increasing number of Microsoft Teams and want to organize and simplify its usage and governance.


Microsoft Teams, an essential tool

Collaborative work now represents the most important professional activity within an organization. According to Microsoft, time spent collaborating with others represents 80% of an employee’s working time. It is projected that 72% of employees will be working remotely by the end of 2020.

In order to meet the needs of this changing workplace, Microsoft Teams has become a flagship business tool of the year 2020. With over 500,000 companies using Microsoft Teams and more than 20 million active users every day, the tool now has the highest adoption rate of any Microsoft product – ever.

Users have adopted Microsoft Teams fast. Every day employees are creating more and more Teams until eventually it becomes challenging for any user to find the Teams and the information they are looking for.

How do I find the Teams that I was working on for that project last week? Where is this document stored? How can we control how Teams are created? These are some of the challenges that many users and organizations are currently trying to solve.


Powell Teams, the app that simplifies the user-experience and governance of Microsoft Teams!

As avid Microsoft Teams users ourselves, we designed this solution to help businesses take advantage of the full potential of the Office 365 app.

The app, currently available for manual deployment, will soon be available in the Microsoft Teams store.
