How is Structural different from Microsoft Teams? Both applications aim to solve obstacles related to connectivity and collaboration. Keep reading to learn how Structural and Teams can connect your employees in unique ways.

1. Rich Profiles

Structural helps resource managers find the right people at the right time. Searchable, robust profiles complete with skills, experience, project data, and interests allow you to quickly identify and connect with others based on your specific needs. Teams has limited profile information that may restrict your search results.

2. Group Connectivity

Whether you need to broadcast a company-wide update or quickly create a group for targeted communication, Structural has you covered. Search for people by their availability, industry experience, or project involvement, add them to a group, and collaborate through posts, polls, and photos. 

In contrast, Microsoft Teams allows for on-the-fly group chat or video conferencing when you already know who you need to connect with. 

3. Messaging and Calling

Structural excels in group collaboration, but also enables individual users to connect. Search for employees using keywords and filters, then email, text, or call directly through the app. Structural also integrates with Slack so you can instantly connect with people who meet your search criteria.

Teams is great for fast-paced communication, allowing users to instant message, call, and video chat within the application. Whether you need web conferencing, meeting scheduling, live event recording, or note taking, Teams has what you need.

4. Employee Resources

Both Structural and Microsoft Teams allow remote access to company resources like employee handbooks or company calendars. Structural brings all company news to a single home page that features new hires, work anniversaries, birthdays, and feeds from Instagram and Twitter. Teams is ideal for file collaboration, integrating with SharePoint and OneDrive.

5. App Integration

Structural and Teams both play well with other apps. By integrating your company's systems with Structural, you can gain further insights into your employees' projects, certifications, workflow, and more!   

Both are great tools, designed to solve different problems in order to increase collaboration and empower your employees!
