Because with a few tips and tricks you can use the most important advantages of MS Teams, do not lose flexibility and save costs in the medium to long term.
Microsoft Teams has grown significantly in recent years and has now established itself not only in private use, but above all in many business areas. Many companies from different industries use the video call functions of MS Teams, on the one hand to contact customers, partners and suppliers externally, but on the other hand to communicate internally with their own employees. Because especially since the beginning of the pandemic, the increase in digital communication and home office has increased and with it the search for flexible and location-independent communication solutions. For this reason, new communication channels such as MS Teams have emerged, which have become almost indispensable for flexible use in business communication.
The simplicity of MS Teams and the associated usage options (such as video calls, chat functions, video recordings, calendar planning, etc.) have a very practical use when it comes to the simple use of contact and video conferences. These advantageous functions and the awareness and trust in the big name "Microsoft" have further promoted the growth of video conferencing software worldwide. In addition, MS Teams can be used conveniently from anywhere, with various compatible devices and at any time by anyone. In addition, MS Teams is included in the basic package of Office 365, which offers considerable added value in addition to the use of Word, Excel and Co.
If you want to use these simple functions of MS Teams for your own business communication, you certainly have some practical advantages. It becomes more difficult if MS Teams is also to be used as a comprehensive telephone system (PBX). Because this shows that only MS Teams as a business PBX with the limited functionalities and areas of application reaches its limits. In addition, MS Teams can only be used with the E5 extension as a complete telephone system, which is associated with considerable costs. You can find more information on this topic in our article from last year. Nevertheless, with this article we would like to show you how you can use MS Teams and their advantages without having to lose flexibility or costs.
Now the big question for all companies is:
How can MS Teams and a comprehensive telephone system be used at the same time without losing important flexibility and functions and without exceeding the investment costs in the long term?
