The coronavirus pandemic opened the business world’s eyes to new ways of working and ushered in the era of a hybrid work environment. Companies have implemented multiple tools to keep remote employees connected and engaged through video conferencing, messaging and chat tools, along with more traditional voice solutions. In addition to standard role responsibilities, employees face a new learning curve to integrate these tools into their workday. The management of multiple applications for a single, simple conversation can have detrimental effects on team productivity. Dialpad for Microsoft Teams centralizes and streamlines employee communications for more efficient, engaged, and ultimately, inclusive teams.
