Microsoft Teams

Persistent chat is great. It's easy to connect people who work local and remote with quick comments or chats. Getting a good group thread going has been really useful for our IT team, both for connecting personally and professionally. And I'm a firm component that if you're connected personally already, it's easier to get the professional work done as well. People are relational, and that's just the way it is.Project management with a mixed team of those within your organization and those external to your organization. We use Teams to connect with multiple external consultants, and I think we should probably use it even more than we do. Replacing some of the email conversations that go back and forth with Teams chats would probably be more beneficial. And schedule meetings through Teams would probably be better too. It would give greater visibility to other users who might not originally have been invited, but they could see the agenda, and essentially add themselves to the meeting invite, if they had something to contribute to the conversation.

Vidyo

I've had HR professionals ask about using it for interviews. Gone are the days where we have to spend hundreds of dollars to fly candidates in or limit ourselves to phone interviews. Vidyo with it's high reliability has saved the organization thousands in travel costs with candidate recruitment. Business meetings that can often be troubling to get leaders and executive all in one room, Vidyo has functioned extraordinarily well in bringing in people from home, on the road, or the airport. Mobile capabilities are easy and fast.Quick daily calls and chats in the office are probably best suited for the free options out there as Vidyo is not a free service like others. Better yet general phone calls will suffice.

Pros

Microsoft Teams

  • Persistent chat - Teams automatically saves a history of your chat discussions so that you can search and find useful information again in the future.
  • Team based chat - Teams delineates between person-to-person chat and team-based chat so that you can easily select the right audience for your communication.
  • Video Conferencing - Teams has built-in video conferencing, which can help facilitate a conversation when typing becomes too cumbersome.

  • I didn't have to sign up, I just need to log into the "room" I was supposed to, so unlike Skype or other instruments, I didn't need to spend time and create my own account.
  • To be honest, the largest online class I've attended had 10 people in it (besides the teacher), but it was a good quality connection.
  • I enjoyed the ability to ask questions or clarifications in the chat (without having to turn on my microphone, so that the teacher could answer the question when he/she finished the thought).

Cons

Microsoft Teams

  • Doesn't allow for pausing screen share during a meeting
  • Doesn't allow users to use a phone to call into a meeting. I have to join twice, once from my phone and once from my computer so that I can present on the call and also use my headphones with my phone.
  • Doesn't respect my computer's DND settings. Notifications from teams still appear while I'm in DND and sharing my screen via different web conferencing tools.
  • Very difficult to clear all notifications in activity.
  • File sharing is difficult. I don't want all of the files I share to be saved in a one drive folder. I constantly run into issues with sharing a screenshot with multiple people, via multiple threads, and being asked if I want to replace or duplicate the file.

  • The design and the branding give little to be desired
  • Customer support is below average
  • The API must be rewritten and add more functions that are commonly requested.
  • Project codes are not well maintained and hard to find.

Usability

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams 7.7
Based on 17 answers
It has a lot of great features and we are working to roll it out to our whole organization. It sometimes feels a little under-developed or maybe under used. There are some things I wish it did better - like integrating the group calendar rather than my own calendar and letting us have instant chat vs persistent.

I have not come to stage where I had to use the Support for Teams but the software is quite self explanatory and detailed. It is manageable overall and easy to learn as well. The install process and app install is seamless. No issues at all. I must say it was an easy install and all got up and running.

We have an internal tech team dedicated to setup and troubleshooting of Vidyo. This makes it very easy, because we have access to our own employees for help. Rarely have I or anyone I work with had to escalate something to Vidyo themselves, and we're lucky to have the internal administrators that run the show. Almost like Vidyo is ours and ours alone.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Teams

Compared to Skype for Business, i think Teams is a more lighter software, no bugs or lags, like when using Skype we used to have. It is more complete when you talk about setting up meetings or conferences. Also, when in a conference, it has a great quality of audio and video. Furthermore, Microsoft Teams has more features compared to Skype, when talking about sharing screen, with Teams you can choose the exatly window you want to share, like, you can share only your Excel window.

Vidyo

We selected Vidyo for its ability to integrate with other software used in the company and the ability to have multiple users without an additional investment. We could pair it with the conference hardware we already had installed at our conference rooms plus every user could have it on their desktop as well. Vidyo's quality for video and voice is better.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Teams

  • The more employees using Teams, the better value the company will get (especially from increased work productivity).
  • Little investment due to Microsoft 365 Enterprise & Office 365 bundling.
  • With little to no time to implement Teams, the tool can have an instant ROI effect, but initially, user adoption and training can be slow to start.

Vidyo

  • It did help us reach the objective of education - after a while, everyone had a chance to connect and the quality of video/audio once you're in is great. It's just getting there that isn't up to par (but hopefully would be changed in next versions).
