Deploying Microsoft Teams Direct Routing with your local provider

The following steps are performed under this phase:

Step 1: Enable Direct Routing

In this step, the connection between Teams admin center and your local provider is created. No configuration at your side, all is fully automated provisioned by your local provider.

Step 2: Enable users for Direct Routing

For this step, you need to first create a user in Microsoft 365 and assign a license. You can create users via admin center. You can then assign the right Microsoft licenses to this user.

  • Configure Voice Routing Options

You can either configure Teams to route through a voice channel directly to the phone network or configure Teams to connect to existing PBX.

  • Phone number

A new or existing phone number can be assigned to a Teams user or an existing PBX extension number can be assigned to a Teams user. This process is automated by your telephony provider.

In case of cloud- based businesses, the Right areas have become cloud business communication solutions. By going with a typical business phone system, you fail to realize how much you are spending on the calls and internal communication costs that you could’ve saved with cloud based communication solutions. Here are five ways how you can stay ahead of your competitors using a digital cloud based business communication solution:

  • Become Productive, not busy!

Staying busy all the time doesn’t mean you are being beneficial for the company all the time. Half of the time employees are busy fixing recurring tasks that can be automated. With a digital business communication solution in place, you’ll find more productivity amongst your employees, increased customer base and better prospects which eventually beats your competitors in cloud business competition.

  • Reach Out to international clients

With a cloud based business communication solution, you can reach out to international clients in an easy manner without biting your nails for potentially increased bills. When you reach out to an international customer base, you are more likely to sell better, grow your business and pursue for stability in your services. Capturing International clients is all you need to stay ahead of your competitors.

  • Get rid of barriers in the way of productivity

Business phone’s tangled wiring; jitters in video conferencing, dropping out important clients’ calls are a few barriers that come in the way of smooth service delivery from your end. With digital business communication, you can make use of top-notch infrastructure for smooth service delivery, that too without the hassle of maintenance at your end!

  • Save Cost on Calls

With business communication solutions, there are easy pricing plans that can fit any business. With a decent communication service provider, you only have to pay for what you need and so you can do more with less. There is less setup costs and almost no maintenance costs with a digital communication solution. In reality, you only don’t save direct communications costs, but also save indirect costs.

  • Hassle-free setup

Not only you save on setup and installation costs, you also save time with the quick and hassle free setup. You don’t have to boil the ocean during setup and installation of a cloud-based business communication solution, because setup is a low-hanging fruit in the first place.
