Microsoft Teams in Office 365 vs. WhatsApp

If you are presently using WhatsApp with your employees and customers you could be putting your business in a needlessly compromising position. Microsoft Teams in Office 365 can help.

WhatsApp is a consumer service that lacks built-in capabilities you and your employees need to work together securely. To achieve this goal, you are required to use multiple point solutions that you must integrate and support. Microsoft Teams is the hub for teamwork in Office 365 that integrates all the people, content, and tools your team needs to be more engaged and effective. When you use Office 365 to share information with co-workers, customers and suppliers you control your data. Microsoft does not mine your data for advertising purposes. Office 365 takes security and compliance to the next level by helping you control data security and lower compliance costs.
