The future of work is flexible. Now more than ever organizations need a single, integrated experience that makes working together easier and more engaging for their employees whether they are all in the same room, remote, or—for many of us—a mix of both.
At Microsoft, we are committed to bridging the gap between physical and digital workspaces. More than 60 percent of the Fortune 500 have already chosen Microsoft Teams Rooms to connect employees across the hybrid divide and active Teams Rooms devices have more than doubled year over year.1
Enabling truly great hybrid meetings and collaboration has gone from nice to have to must have. Because of this, Microsoft is happy to announce changes to Microsoft Teams Rooms, making it easy to start your hybrid journey.
Meeting space solutions play a vital role in enabling effective hybrid collaboration, but many of today’s rooms systems are focused on the people who are physically present. In fact, less than 8 percent of the 90 million conference rooms worldwide are video enabled.2
Microsoft Teams Rooms help remove the barriers between spaces, places, and people and are designed to deliver inclusive meeting experiences with all participants in mind. Teams Rooms can turn any room into an easy-to-use and inclusive meeting space where everyone can fully engage and participate, no matter where they are. Teams Rooms is an ecosystem of Microsoft Teams software and certified partner hardware devices that provide flexibility for your meeting needs.
Enable everyone to be seen, heard, and fully participate from anywhere.
