Microsoft Teams: Microsoft Teams, Microsoft’s key cloud collaboration application, has continued to gain ground against other workstream collaboration applications. With Outlook and SharePoint compatibility, Microsoft Teams can integrate seamlessly with core business practices. This means no longer having to juggle multiple communication platforms or track hundreds of notifications.
Slack: Slack has held a dominant position in the workstream collaboration market with their “collaboration hub” application, the first of its kind. With extensive 3rd party application integration, Slack enables a seamless and collaborative workplace environment geared towards teamwork and productivity.
Zoom: Zoom showcases specialized wireless Zoom Rooms with seamless screen sharing for every OS. Having one of the most scalable video conferencing services, Zoom can allow up to 10,000 users in one meeting. Along with support for 3rd party application integration, Zoom encourages users to find the best way to work for them, rather than for the software.
Skype for Business: Skype for Business offers chat and telephony capabilities, one of the first market entrants in this industry. Skype for Business underwent a series of changes before landing on this comprehensive communication solution. With Instant Messaging, video conferencing, and Office 365 application integration, Skype for Business is an easy solution for your workplace.
Workplace by Facebook: Workplace by Facebook focuses on the mobile application of workstream collaboration, which shows consistency with their connection-oriented mission. This familiar social networking platform connects chat, conferencing, and collaboration onto an app that has a similar feel to the consumer version that we already know.
