Going to the office is only happening in some cases, or not at all, nowadays. This is due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, which totally derailed the way companies used to conduct their business.

Thus, numerous enterprises and firms have been migrating to online communication software, such as Teams, for their collaborative needs.

But it’s also true that not all companies can rely on modern devices that can facilitate remote communication, making it harder for them to synchronize and compete in this hybrid work era.

Microsoft helps firms adapt to the hybrid work environment

However, all is not lost, as Microsoft launched a new device trade-in program, in collaboration with Network-Value, giving customers an opportunity to ethically sell their aging hardware.

How does this work, you ask? Basically, Network-Value buys your organization’s old hardware at competitive prices and provides environmentally responsible options for also getting rid of it.

One of the other benefits includes in this awesome deal is the global coverage where a company of any size is eligible for this program.

Furthermore, the Redmond tech giant has also emphasized that the price you get for your traditional communication hardware is dependent upon a number of factors.

Among these factors that the campaign hinges on is market demand, the age of your device, and of course its condition.

Microsoft also noted that some hardware may actually be so old that it has no resale value at all, but you can take comfort in the fact that Network-Value will responsibly dispose of it for you and free up your inventory space.

It’s important to know that any quote offered by Network-Value is valid for 45 days only and the company will also cover costs for return shipping.

However, if you would rather have their technical experts visit your company on-site for decommissioning, the cost for that will be deducted from your total trade-in value.

How’s that for an extra incentive for using Teams as your main conferencing/communication application? Remember that the company also started a Youtube channel that helps you maximize your Teams experience.

Also worth taking into consideration is the fact that the feature that allows you to join organization meetings with your personal Teams account is now rolling out.

And if you were anxiously waiting for the update that brings more Reactions emojis to Teams, know that it has been postponed.
