NetFortris Comm-unity Brings Enterprise Calling to Microsoft Teams
Solution Goes Beyond Inbound and Outbound Calling to Include Call-handling, Call Center, Call Reporting and Other Advanced Communications Capabilities
SEATTLE – October 28, 2020 – NetFortris Inc., an international provider of managed cloud communications solutions and network services, announced today that the NetFortris Comm-unity Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) platform now integrates with Microsoft Teams to bring enterprise calling features to the popular Microsoft 365 collaboration application.
NetFortris Comm-unity for Microsoft Teams, available now from the Microsoft AppSource, empowers businesses to access Comm-unity’s advanced unified communications and call center functionality natively from the Microsoft Teams application on any Internet-enabled device, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones.
“NetFortris Comm-unity for Microsoft Teams simplifies collaboration and management for businesses of all sizes,” said Steven Horgan, Product Manager at NetFortris. “It gives in-office and remote workers one platform for collaboration and communications with internal and external connections. And, it gives business owners and IT managers one platform to manage.”
Since the sudden shift to remote work during the pandemic, use of Microsoft Teams for business messaging and collaboration has surged, more than doubling from 32 million daily users on March 12, 2020, to 75 million as of April 30, 2020.
“Microsoft Teams, which is included in Microsoft 365, became the go-to collaboration hub for many businesses that scrambled to enable work from home in compliance with physical distance requirements,” said Horgan. “However, as the weeks and months have passed, businesses have warmed to the merits of remote and hybrid workforces and are now looking to enhance the Teams experience with calling capabilities. That’s where NetFortris Comm-unity for Microsoft Teams can help.”
NetFortris Comm-unity for Microsoft Teams goes beyond inbound and outbound calling capabilities to include enterprise-class communications features that are not available with Direct Routing to Teams or standard Microsoft Teams Calling Plans, such as:
✔ Call flows and ring groups
✔ Call recording
✔ Call center functionality, including wallboards
✔ Call reporting
✔ IP desktop phones
NetFortris Comm-unity for Microsoft Teams is available as an add-on to any Comm-unity Professional or Ultimate seat. No hardware or software installation is required; administrators can enable the solution instantly from the Comm-unity Admin Panel.
NetFortis Comm-unity for Microsoft Teams is available immediately through NetFortris Authorized Sales Partners. For more information or to schedule a demo, visit www.netfortris.com/Microsoft-teams-ucaas-integration.
