Wed, 7th Feb 2024

22Miles, a global expert in digital signage software, has unveiled its Microsoft Teams app and Outlook plug-in to streamline employee engagement and workplace productivity. The newly released app and plug-in are set to enhance the efficacy of customers using Microsoft Teams, Outlook, and Exchange while being part of 22Miles’ broader digital workplace solutions.

The new 22Miles Teams app and Outlook plug-in extend the company’s existing Microsoft integration capabilities, offering a better visual and effective digital connectivity experience for hybrid teams. The operation of this innovation is facilitated by 22Miles’ device-agnostic content management software (CMS), which allows seamless access to information, team communication, and collaboration for users, whether they are based in the office, at home, or on the move.

Tomer Mann, Chief Revenue Officer at 22Miles, affirmed the significance of these fresh integrations: “Microsoft is trusted by millions of people globally, providing administrative, collaboration and employee engagement tools that few can rival. We’re eager to expand the Microsoft stack our customers already trust with the rollout of the 22Miles Teams App and Outlook plug-in, and we look forward to bringing newfound simplicity and efficiency to workflows and improving the employee workplace experience.”

The Teams app, which is available for download within Microsoft Teams, is designed for seamless functionality across all workplace devices, including desktop, mobile, and digital signage. This enables administrators to distribute company announcements, live data dashboards, emergency alerts, and other content to Teams channels and chats with ease. The app is also equipped to work in harmony with existing 22Miles Microsoft integrations, including Microsoft Team Rooms takeover, virtual receptionist capabilities, a native PowerBI widget, amongst others.

Furthermore, the 22Miles Teams app leverages Microsoft Azure to offer single sign-on (SSO) data through Active Directory, enabling secure and convenient access across ecosystem activities. In addition to this, the software provides administrative synchronization abilities with SharePoint via the 22Miles Content Manager for smooth asset management operations.

The functionalities of the 22Miles Teams app also extend to improving the employee's workspace experience, providing features for making and managing reservations for rooms or hot desks and for locating colleagues across the facility or campus. Complementing these features, the 22Miles Outlook plug-in enhances the user’s encounter by presenting a 3D map preview of workspaces, floorplans, and nearby areas directly in Outlook, simplifying the task of selecting the right space resources for upcoming meetings or office days. This plug-in can be downloaded directly from Outlook or the Microsoft Store.
