Microsoft Teams Téléphonie

Over the past year, we’ve all embraced new tools to make telecommuting possible. VoIP technology, however, has flown under many businesses' radar—even though making calls is still a crucial part of operations! Let's take a close look at how a VoIP solution such as Microsoft Teams Business Voice differs from traditional telephony offerings.

What is VoIP?

Voice over IP (VoIP) is a technology that transmits voices over different networks via the internet. The service is available to anyone, regardless of location or internet provider.

For the business world, VoIP means making digital voice calls with colleagues and clients using your regular phone number, but without the need for a landline. It's the perfect solution for employees on the road, telecommuters, or any business that moves around a lot.

In most cases, VoIP offers numerous advantages, such as cost savings and greater flexibility. For example, by combining VoIP's benefits with a platform such as Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Business Voice consolidates all the essential tools your business uses, making offsite collaboration easier than ever before.

VoIP costs less

Since it doesn't require any hardware purchases, VoIP is generally the most cost-effective telephony solution for businesses. It's easy to install on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices, requiring zero installation costs.

Moreover, VoIP offers both local and long-distance plans that are far less expensive than traditional phone plans. And to help you save a little more, each plan and package can be tailored to your business realities. With no maintenance required, VoIP lets you easily manage, add, and remove users on-demand for complete control over your usage costs.
