If your business already has an Office 365 subscription, chances are you are already using Teams. For most of us, especially over the past few months, Teams has been an all-encompassing platform for collaboration, communication and document sharing. It has enabled effective remote working and made teamwork that much easier. Teams’ latest innovation, Teams Phone, has evolved into a cloud-based phone system, which could replace your traditional business phone system. Consolidating your systems around Microsoft platforms helps build a Modern Workplace and is of extremely high value to your business.
What is Teams Phone System?
Microsoft Teams Phone System allows you to replace your traditional phone system with a cloud-based phone. It is integrated with Office 365 and if you already have an Office 365 subscription, you simply need to purchase the appropriate licence extension and choose a calling plan. You then have the ability to place and receive calls to phone numbers via Teams. Essentially, it gives you phone capabilities within the cloud. Teams Phone can be used with your mobile device, a headset with your laptop or PC, or one of the many compatible handsets available.
Advantage of Using Teams Phone System
Like all Office 365 applications, Teams Phone System is updated constantly, so you always have access to the best, cutting-edge technology. Additionally, this means that you always have the latest security updates, keeping you and your business protected and secure.
You are probably already using Office 365. This means that you are already halfway to having a Teams Phone System. You simply need to purchase a licence extension and Teams Phone will integrate seamlessly with your Office 365 infrastructure.
Teams Phone System has the same functions as a regular phone. You can make and receive calls, set up voicemail, transfer and forward calls, put someone on hold and have call queues. The only difference is that it all takes place within the cloud framework.
Teams Phone System is easy to deploy internationally. It is a single, global system that can be used from home or the office, on a PC or mobile. No matter where your employees are based, they will have seamless access to Teams Phones.
When it comes to calling plans, there is a wide range to choose from. You have the flexibility to choose the plan most suited to your business. Whether you need a plan for lots of international calls or you want to use your internet provider for a calling plan, the choice is yours.
You can import all your existing contacts and their phone numbers into your Teams Phone System. You will not have to manually add each contact, saving time and energy.
Whilst replacing your phone system might seem daunting, Teams Phone System is priced competitively. You may find that comparatively, pricing for Teams Phone is similar to what you are already paying for a similar functionality.
You can use Teams Phone System with a number of devices, including your mobile and PC. There are also a number of dedicated compatible handsets available.
