Microsoft Teams App, included in the harmon.ie subscription, drives enterprise Teams adoption by enabling workers to bring emails into Microsoft Teams conversations in a single click.
1 December 2020
harmon.ie, the leader in user-experience products for Microsoft 365, today announced the availability of its next generation Email TeamMate™ product. Email TeamMate is the first and only Microsoft Teams app that enables enterprise workers to bring Outlook emails directly into Microsoft Teams conversations, without leaving Teams.
A whopping 115 million people now use Microsoft Teams daily to stay in touch with colleagues in real-time, mostly through virtual meetings and, to a lesser degree, chat conversations. But workers continue to use Outlook email to connect with external parties like partners, suppliers, and customers. With information split between two apps, workers struggle to focus on customers’ and suppliers’ requests. The result is costly mistakes, missed opportunities, and additional stress on top of the already stressful ‘home alone’ syndrome.
By enabling workers to bring emails into Microsoft Teams conversations, Email TeamMate empowers ‘at home’ workers to reach out to colleagues for help in real-time, in the context of an ongoing Teams conversation. For the worker, the result is increased productivity and streamlined task handling by using Teams conversations effectively and efficiently to get work done. By enabling workers to focus without toggling between Teams and Outlook, Email TeamMate boosts the amount of time they spend in Teams. As they achieve a state of flow, a mental state of being fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment. For the business, Email TeamMate reduces costly errors and missed opportunities, while driving Microsoft Teams adoption beyond virtual meetings.
“2020 is the ‘year of working from home’, during which workers have had to adapt to a new reality. For them, Microsoft Teams and harmon.ie have been a godsend”, said Yaacov Cohen, founder and CEO at harmon.ie. “Now, Email TeamMate ushers in a new era of productivity as it brings the harmon.ie’s ‘user experience magic’ to Microsoft Teams, by making the right thing the easy thing to do. As our customers gear up for the post-pandemic Digital Workplace, harmon.ie will continue to be with them, ensuring workers and organizations derive maximum value from their Microsoft 365 investments.”
