Project and team work in Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 encompasses central tools like Outlook, Word, Excel, OneNote as well as Skype, email, SharePoint and OneDrive for daily collaboration in projects and teams. Given the multitude of technologies available to Office 365 users, choosing the right tools for a project can be a challenging and not necessarily intuitive task.
This is why Seamless combines selected collaboration functions from Office 365 for project tasks in a simple but smart, intuitive user interface. All information is presented centrally at one place – and your teams can focus on working on the content.
