The interviews and financial analysis by Forrester found that a composite organization experiences benefits of $47.10 million over three years versus costs of $12.06 million, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $35.04 million and an ROI of 291%.

The case study concluded that 60% of offices will move to a hybrid environment with fewer employees. 

Microsoft Teams enables the composite organization to save time and money while empowering its employees to build deeper connections with colleagues, partners, and customers.

Senior director of digital workplace manufacturing said, “Teams is a super app because it does so many things. It’s not just for voice calls. It’s not just for video conferencing. It’s a true collaboration tool. Everything that you need is there, and now it’s integrating into all sorts of things, making it even more useful and powerful.”

  1. Rapid implementation of Microsoft Teams in response to COVID-19: one acute healthcare organization’s experience.

COVID-19 presented significant challenges to healthcare organizations, which needed to rapidly remodel their services but could not allow staff to meet face-to-face to minimize infection risk. 

During this communication emergency, National Health Service (NHS) Digital announced the provision of Microsoft Teams, a digital communication and collaboration tool implemented at Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust within two weeks.

The resulting use cases of Microsoft Teams were highly original and varied, ranging from a COVID-19 Education Programme to coordination of oxygen demand. 

Analytics showed rapid and persistent adoption, surpassing 500 daily active users within 11 days. 

Overall, this has been a radical approach to digital implementation in healthcare and has so far proved effective in delivering a cost-minimal, rapid communication tool at scale amid a global pandemic.
