Experience the power of integrated solutions for your business

Unlocking the potential of your business communication solutions

We operate in a fast-paced business world that requires clear, quick, and easy communication with customers and stakeholders. Businesses that fail to do that get left behind. One business communications solution that has seen widespread adoption in the past few years is Microsoft Teams, a collaboration platform that inter-operates seamlessly with Microsoft’s many other business applications.

But even though it offers video calls and text chats, Teams on its own is not a complete communications platform. Only by integrating Teams with a Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) platform can users access the full functionality of their business’ telephony capabilities.

As an award-winning cloud-based communications provider, 101VOICE understands and helps our customers utilize the benefits of Microsoft Teams integration with our UCaaS offerings. Below are five of the most powerful benefits of this integration solution for your business.

Benefit 1: Streamlined Communication and Collaboration

When Microsoft Teams is integrated with UCaaS, businesses get a unified communication platform that combines Voice over IP (VoIP), video, and text chat capabilities, extending Teams’ capabilities and turning it into a one-stop communications and collaboration hub.

With 101TEAMS, employees get all the phone system functions from a traditional telephony solution (call forwarding, call waiting, call queue monitoring, management functions etc.) right inside Teams itself. Plus, they can make and receive phone calls to and from any number via the mobile phone app.

These expanded telephony features further enhance the excellent collaboration tools of Teams. Having access to all of this (and more) in one centralized platform makes managing the business’ communication processes and needs much simpler and more streamlined.

Benefit 2: Enhanced Productivity and Efficiency

With UCaaS and Microsoft Teams integration, employees don’t need to switch between different applications, tools, or platforms to complete their work. They can see other users’ status and availability at a glance, initiate audio and video calls directly from inside Teams, share screens, and work on documents together in real-time.

These seamless team collaboration capabilities help employees reach their goals far faster than they could without UCaaS and Microsoft Teams integration.

Benefit 3: Streamlined Workflows and Processes

In a sales proposal review process without UCaaS and Microsoft Teams integration, a salesperson would have to interface between communication platforms outgoing to their customer on their deskphone and internally in their MS Teams environment when it comes to proposal reviews and feedback.

When that same salesperson is working on a UCaaS communications platform integrated with Teams, the process is very different. They can:

  • Share the proposal document inside a dedicated channel or group inside Teams
  • Communicate to their team members and to customers on the Microsoft Teams app
  • Make calls with their existing phone numbers using Microsoft Teams

This means much faster turnaround times for this specific sales proposal review process, but it applies equally to any multi-person process inside the business. Integrating Microsoft Teams with our UCaaS can significantly improve business processes and workflows by improving the speed and efficiency of communication between stakeholders.

Benefit 4: Scalability and Flexibility

With Microsoft Teams and UCaaS integration, businesses can easily scale their communication infrastructure. Whether expanding or downsizing, adding or removing users becomes a seamless process. And because Teams and UCaaS are hosted in the cloud, capabilities can be expanded or downscaled easily without the need to roll out additional hardware. This empowers businesses to adapt and grow with ease.

Benefit 5: Cost Savings

Integrating Microsoft Teams with UCaaS saves money by consolidating communication tools and reducing infrastructure requirements. Businesses can eliminate the need for separate communication solutions, hardware investments, and maintenance costs and instead switch to paying a per-user, per-month subscription cost with consolidated billing.

101VOICE’s cost-effective UCaaS solutions, coupled with Microsoft Teams integration, provide businesses with a comprehensive and budget-friendly communication package.
