How to integrate Microsoft Teams into your workplace

It’s 2021, and enabling staff to work anywhere, anytime, on any device is the expected norm. But now your people can benefit from a simple and streamlined suite of tools designed to improve connectivity and productivity, thanks to Microsoft Teams.  

So, whether Mike from HR is working from home, or sitting right beside you, you’ll be able to work together seamlessly. Whenever.  

Want to know more about how to integrate Microsoft Teams into your workplace? Our experts discuss how to best leverage the platform and empower remote working.  

Introducing Microsoft Teams Connector 

Like most businesses, you may get overwhelmed by the number of ways we can communicate: phone calls, instant messaging, SMS, carrier pigeon, smoke signals – you get the idea, it’s a long list! Now, using the new Microsoft Teams Calling packages from LiveCall, you can call externally using the public phone. Putting all your communications in one, easy-to-use place. Sounds simple, right? Probably because it is.  

A companion service for Office 365 

LiveOffice Teams Connector is a companion service for Office 365, enabling businesses across Australia to switch on telephony features in Microsoft Teams in minutes.  

Hosted in the cloud, the service leverages LivePBX, and carries millions of calls every day over a highly resilient SIP platform that is built to deliver exceptional quality. All to make business communication that much easier. 

One, easy-to-use solution 

With Microsoft Teams Connector, your staff can integrate internal and external calls, video conferencing, email, instant messaging, and file sharing into one, simple solution. By bringing everything together, businesses are able to boost their agility, improve their end-user experience, and reduce costs, administration and training. Sounds like a win-win to us! 

How does Microsoft Teams Connector integrate into your current system? 

Teams Connector connects your business’ Office 365 environment to internal Session Border Controllers (SBCs) with terminating SIP lines. This enables external voice calls to be activated in the Office 365 environment, turning Microsoft Teams into a full collaboration suite.  

An enterprise-grade solution, deployed within hours 

The thing we love most about Microsoft Teams and LiveCall is that there are no hardware requirements. That means once your Microsoft Partner activates LiveCall, your entire organisation will be able to make internal and external calls using Teams within a matter of hours. Not days or weeks. 

Not sure how to get started with LiveCall? Spirit’s got you covered. Offering 24×7 monitoring and support, our Microsoft product experts will set everything up for you!

LiveCall is a highly available, geographically redundant voice platform that connects you to the LivePBX platform. Hosted in the cloud, LivePBX offers crystal clear calling at wallet-friendly rates.  

Improved collaboration and communication with Office 365 integration 

Thanks to the integration with Office 365, you don’t need to switch apps when you collaborate on documents. In fact, you can create Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents in Teams, ready to share and co-author with your co-workers whenever you need to.  

Version control issues are a thing of the past! No more sending out different draft versions via email, you can all collaborate in one living document. Saving lots of time and confusion! You can easily add comments, to-dos, and chat with your co-workers to produce the document of dreams. Or not. The choice is yours! 

Work from anywhere. Anytime.  

If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that life can be unpredictable! And sometimes, those unexpected roadblocks can mean we need to work from some unexpected places at unexpected times. And that can make staying connected more than a little tricky! 

With Microsoft Teams, your people are enabled to work from anywhere, at anytime. Hosted in the cloud, Teams provides immediate access to all your apps, documents and chats, so you can pick up work as easily as if you were in the office.
