Identify customers who are likely to adopt Microsoft Teams

By targeting the right customers, you have the potential to boost your business with additional revenue by upselling Teams Calling, driving usage through Teams Meetings and Rooms, and managing migrations from Skype for Business to Teams.

Understand your customers’ journey in Microsoft Teams. The typical journey starts with Chat and Collaboration, then Meetings and Calling. With this progression in mind, you can tailor your customer engagements based on the usage data shown in the Office 365 Active Usage details dashboard as shown in the table below.

Customer Adoption stages on Teams Recommended engagement

Optimized customers: 40% or higher usageUpsell to Teams Calling
Core customers: 20% or higher usageUpsell to Teams Calling, and upsell to Teams Rooms to ensure the customer is leveraging Meetings capabilities
Initialized customers: Less than 20% active usageUpsell to Teams Rooms to ensure the customer is leveraging Meetings capabilities
Dormant customers: 0 – 1% active usageDrive adoption by showing the benefits of Chat and Collaboration. Leverage Meetings for higher usage.

If your customer has active usage in other workloads, especially Skype for Business but not Teams, start engaging with those customers and develop a transition plan to Teams.

For those customers that are part of the Microsoft automated upgrade from Skype for Business, leverage Microsoft assets to grow their Teams active usage.
