Teams VOIP Telephony
What is Microsoft 365 Business Voice?
Microsoft 365 Business Voice makes it easy for SMEs to turn Microsoft Teams into a powerful and flexible telephone system. It’s a replacement for traditional telephony providers and in-house PBX phone systems that can be difficult and costly to manage. You can set up both toll and toll-free numbers, call menus to help callers get to the right department, audio conferencing so you can host meetings with anyone and more. You can even give people their own phone numbers so they can get calls directly.
Business Voice does all of this by wrapping Microsoft 365 Phone System features into an easy-to-manage bundle. You don’t need to worry about choosing the right plan or feature; they’re all there and set up for you. Because the Phone System is a part of Teams, you can turn any PC, Mac, or mobile device into a phone that can use your Business Voice phone number.
MS Teams now becomes your phone system at work.
No need for costly traditional handsets. Headsets can be used instead.
No need for a costly on-site PBX telephony replacement.
Your company now has a unified solution for internal and external communications via Microsoft Teams.
Very user-friendly and none of the complexities of traditional forwarding of calls and phone setups for new employees.
