Voice and video calling with Microsoft Teams

Tech Engine Australia is pleased to offer a new service that will connect your telephony system with Microsoft Teams for virtual meetings. This integration has been made possible through the use of Cloudjet’s newest enhancement, which transforms you from a single-tool user into an “omni-channel” office worker by integrating different channels and services together!

So Firstly, What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that lets your team stay organised and have conversations all in one place. Watch the video below for an in-depth explanation.

What is Microsoft Teams? Tech Engine Australia.

Microsoft Teams allows you too:

  • Chat – Share your opinion, and your personality. Send gifs, stickers, and emojis in a group chat or in one-to-one messages.
  • Meet – Instantly go from group chat to video conference with the touch of a button. Teams of 2 or 10,000 can meet in one place, no matter how many places they’re in.
  • Call – Make and receive calls with internal and external groups using Microsoft Teams Calling, Phone System, Calling Plan, or Direct Routing.
  • Collaborate – Easily find, share, and edit files in real time using familiar apps like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel in Teams.

So this brings us nicely onto Microsoft 365 Business Voice

One of the newest features in Microsoft Teams is Microsoft 365 Business Voice. This solution will allow you to have meetings, make calls and chat with your colleagues all from one application. You can also present slideshows or share screens for presentations without leaving it behind!

Calling in Teams starts with Microsoft Phone System. It provides the calling features every organisation needs, from placing a call to transferring one caller to another person or department without having them hang up and redialing. Pair it with Direct Routing or Calling Plans so people can make and receive calls no matter where they are located within your offices around town.

  • Enterprise cloud calling – Give people the calling features they need to get business done. Get consultative transfers, music on hold, call park, and cloud voicemail in Teams.
  • Collaborative calling experiences – Deliver great collaborative experiences as part of Phone System in Microsoft Teams with features such as group call pickup, delegation, and shared line appearance.
  • Customer support experiences – Help ensure every customer is answered and routed to the right queue with cloud auto attendants and call queues in Phone System.
  • Global administrative experiences – Administer and monitor your calling in Microsoft 365 with the Teams admin center and call quality dashboard. Save time for your IT professionals with a centralized experience.
