This was our fifth webinar in a series for lesser-known Office 365 applications, hosted by our intY Pre-Sales Team. We looked at how Microsoft Sway and Microsoft Stream can add value and increase collaboration within your customers' business, through videos and interactive presentations.

Microsoft Stream is an enterprise video service where customers can upload, view and share videos securely, within their organisation. They can share recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, training sessions, or other videos that aid team collaboration.

Microsoft Sway is a free app from Microsoft Office that helps gather, format, and share reports, newsletters, web pages, and presentations on an interactive, web-based canvas that looks great on almost any screen. That’s right, we said interactive! Your customers can use videos or interactive charts to engage their audience like never before.

intY partners get exclusive access to our full list of webinars, supporting documentation and brandable materials. They also receive expert advice from our Cloud Sales Specialists.
