Introduction

Together – The small business communication & collaboration space. Whether the goal is to improve employee productivity, collaboration, or communication, small businesses are just as concerned by digital transformation issues as large companies. Yet SMEs face unique struggles in the modern workplace that hinder their efforts. It's common to hear employees talk about the number of tools they have, the complexity of using them, and the training involved. At the same time, they complain of lengthy, costly, and often ineffective change management projects.

Together – the intranet in Teams and vice versa! In the same time, a true corporate intranet and a team in Microsoft Teams, "Together" leverages both modes of information sharing: structured communication in the intranet, spontaneity, and collaboration in Teams. Together is simply an all-in-one space that meets the needs of employees and businesses in an intuitive and social interface.

Together helps companies promote company culture and social interaction where employees want it: in Teams. You no longer need to guess where to post the latest company news; the intranet or Teams? Now, the two are linked with Together. Easily interact and engage employees by sharing and reacting to company news and events!

It is also ready-to-use thanks to a predefined and pre-configured template with the essential pages of a corporate intranet enhanced with Powell Software's exclusive content: desk reservation tool, virtual coffee break, and virtual water cooler. The essentials for hybrid working.
