HOW TO COMPETE AGAINST MICROSOFT TEAMS

Recently released in 2017, Microsoft Teams is storming the market space, currently with 13 million weekly users, and now one of the biggest workplace chat apps, surpassing Slack and Google Hangouts.

Increased growth of Teams is causing uncertainty to some Vendors who recognise Teams as direct competition to their business interests, thus revenues.

We decided to bring up this topic within our Ecosystem and speak about Teams, their possible influence on Channel Partners and the industry.

Major Industry Players switch to the direct sales/service model: a Myth or a present Reality?

Over the last few years, there have been many rumours about an increased risk of the “direct sales model” with launch and domination among the companies that form the UC&C backbone worldwide.

Headlines from the most respected publications in the industry feed the readers with such things as:

“The … Cloud business will be driven by a new end-user-focused engagement model”
“Resellers Beware: More Companies Now Selling Direct

How & Why to get your business listed online?

Every day we use the Internet countless times; we:

  • buy and sell products;
  • book tickets/hotels;
  • book appointments for any type of services;
  • seek for jobs;
  • read movie/book reviews;
  • ask for references/ recommendations when want to go on vacation, etc.

Social Media In Business: are you for or against?

Hi there!

I am Alla and currently I am doing my first steps in two completely new spheres:

  1. Interning (quite a new feeling) in an global Telecommunications company, Wildix, and
  2. writing a blog article in the new workplace (Telecommunications is quite different from the Sports industry, where I had worked since I was a student).

But, no matter what, the challenge is gladly accepted and I can say that it’s a surprisingly nice feeling to find myself out of my comfort zone!

This little article (and the following poll) will be quite personal as I will speak about the things I have experienced in the past – and you know what? – Marketing tools and approaches in Sports and Telecommunications are incredibly similar – no joke!
