But, while Zoom might be a ubiquitous figure, there are other contenders in the digital arena worth considering.

Imagine a blend of video calls, file sharing, and real-time collaboration—this is Microsoft Teams. It's the Swiss Army knife of communication tools for the savvy professional:

  • Instant Messaging: Quickfire conversations alongside formal meetings.
  • Seamless Collaboration: SharePoint integration to keep everyone on the same (web)page.
  • Customizability: Tailor your workspace to the nth degree.
