Microsoft Teams Direct Routing
Microsoft Teams Direct Routing
Employees want flexibility in terms of where they work, to help them better manage their time. In the current climate of Government enforced lockdown, we are enabling employees to work from home, with their office tools set up to help them to continue working effectively. Such systems include a phone and a desktop computer running software such as Office 365 and Teams.
Many businesses have deployed standalone technologies and software to address their IT and Telephony requirements. But these organisations are now realising that these systems are disjointed, with business continuity plans being difficult and time consuming to manage.
To address these issues, DMC Technologies are working with businesses to maximise value from their current investments, as well as recommending agile solutions that deliver true unified communications.
Here we’ll look at one of the innovative ways employees can communicate effectively when working remotely, enabling flexible working and addressing business continuity challenges.
Microsoft Teams and Direct Routing
DMC Technologies are offering flexible alternatives to Microsoft Calling Plans, through our DMC Connect platform.
Our Microsoft Teams Direct Routing is a bespoke, flexible, accessible and cost-effective solution, allowing you to make external calls directly from Microsoft Teams.
Any company using Microsoft Teams as their unified communications tool can implement Direct Routing from DMC to gain a better return on investment. It enables increased functionality and improved cost savings, with little to no capital investment.
