Powtoon integrates with Microsoft teams for seamless video creation and collaboration
LONDON, August 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Powtoon, a leading visual communications platform, today announced it has released a seamless integration with Microsoft Teams, allowing users to easily create, share, edit, and comment on videos in a collaborative workspace for businesses.
In the new hybrid workplace, employees at all levels of the organization are experiencing a communication crisis. With more communication tools than ever, it is increasingly difficult to align teams. In their personal lives, employees are accustomed to consuming small-sized information on apps like YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook, and they expect their business communication to mimic the nature of these formats.
Year after year, research in visual communication shows that 48% of all employees consider video to be the most engaging form of communication (TechSmith, 2020). In organizations familiar with video, employees are twice as likely to rate their business highly on collaboration, and 75% more likely to rate them highly on employee engagement (Global Web Index, 2021).
Powtoon is proud to be one of the first platforms in this new category, allowing Teams users to intuitively create, share, and collaborate on videos right within their Teams platform.
Founder and CEO of Powtoon, Ilya Spitalnik said: “Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, a short video gives everyone in the organization a solid point of reference, a visual base from which to start and always come back to. I am delighted to see how Powtoon facilitates the things for Microsoft Teams users to provide information via video and, more importantly, collaborate, comment, and receive instant feedback on the videos they are working on. “
As a visual communication platform, Powtoon’s intuitive interface allows anyone with the ability to create PowerPoint to create engaging videos as well. By integrating into the Teams environment, users can now:
- Create and personalize powerful videos and visual content without leaving Teams
- Share videos through group channels and direct chats to fill knowledge gaps
- Collaborate on Powtoon videos from their Teams tab to speed up approval processes and get feedback faster
“We are delighted to welcome Powtoon’s visual communications platform to the Microsoft Teams ecosystem,” said daniel cannage, Director, Microsoft Teams Platform at Microsoft. “Teams users are always on the lookout for the best apps to improve communication and alignment within their organization. The Powtoon video maker app will allow our users to easily and quickly create and share video and visual content without interrupting their workflow. “
