Extend the power of Microsoft Teams into a true Unified Communications (UC) platform with Microsoft Teams Direct Routing
In order to thrive in today’s digital era, your customers’ remote working strategy needs to be made up of efficient collaboration tools and Microsoft Teams Direct Routing is the answer.
With Microsoft Teams Direct Routing, your Teams platform is converted into a fully-fledged business phone system with true Unified Communications (UC) capability. By combining their business’ internal and external communications into one tightly-knit system, you create a simple, easy to use platform that has your calling, chat, meetings, file sharing and more in one convenient place.
Why MSPs shouldn’t miss the opportunity to sell Microsoft Teams Direct Routing?
Is Microsoft Teams Direct Routing for your customer?
If your client matches any of the following criteria, they most likely can benefit from using this solution:
An existing Microsoft Teams user
Any business that is deeply embedded in Microsoft Teams as their primary mode of internal communications can easily transition to use this platform into their
external communication too. This means less of a need for a separate Private Branch eXchange (PBX) together with better integration
An existing Office 365/ Microsoft 365 user
Not a Teams user yet but already have some form of Office 365? Many organisations do not realise that their Office 365 license arrangement may already include Microsoft Teams in their Office 365 subscription. So why not utilise something that you already paid for?
Looking for cost efficiency and flexibility
Converting Teams into a Private Branch eXchange (PBX) and overall Unified Communications (UC) solution, is cost and time effective. As a one-stop communications platform, there’s no need for multiple systems like a business Private Branch eXchange (PBX), file sharing system and instant messaging platform – you get all three of these in one convenient system.
Microsoft Teams Direct Routing makes remote work easier,
enabling businesses to communicate seamlessly
regardless of their location. Your customers can collaborate whenever, wherever, just by accessing Microsoft Teams on any of their chosen devices such as phone, tablet or desktop.
“Our building collapsed earlier this year [and] we kept operating. We had Teams Calling and were able to work from our mobile phones. We weren’t tied to anything in that building. We can exist anywhere and that’s the beauty of Teams; we run off mobile phones and that’s for normal landlines via Teams as well as mobile calls.”
Scott Atkinson, CEO at TribeTech
