An all-in-one application tailored to the new way of working
Microsoft Teams is so much more than ‘the new Skype for business’. It is the new way of collaborating efficiently and goes beyond chat or (video) conferencing alone.
The days when employees had one job or belonged to just one workgroup are over. Teams allows you to work in a structured, centralized way and prevents an information overload!
Yes! You can make external phone calls with Microsoft Teams!
Teams offers PBX capabilities (Private Branch Exchange) and replaces on-premises PBX. In combination with direct routing or a call subscription . This way you have full call possibilities within Office 365.
It's possible to use your own telecom provider . This way it's easy to receive and make calls from any device (smartphones, tablets, PC’s, Macs...).

Effortlessly organize Webinars with Teams Live Events
The perfect collaboration platform
Working together seems easier than it is.
- You're bombarded with emails, messages, phones from various platforms...
- Documents and information are scattered everywhere and nowhere
- Getting the right people together for a particular subject is a challenge.
- The same questions are asked and answered over and over again
- It's very hard to get a good overview of what's going on...
Teams tackles these challenges with an all-in-one portal that streamlines collaboration.
How does it work?
You can create as many ‘Teams’ as you like. Imagine starting a project to organize an event
- Assemble a Team and give it an appropriate name e.g. “Our Event”;
- Add files and folders you want to share with the members, relevant to the event;
- You add relevant things, e.g. a OneNote, a agenda, Planner, intranet or web pages...that the team will often need in relation to the project...
Now your project has one central discussion portal and everyone has the most up-to-date information available.
Done with documents and revisions by emailing in endless threats with everyone in cc, done with whatsapp groups, separate DropBox, Trello’s…
In addition, you can edit Office files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint...) together, either directly within Teams(!) or by opening them in the desktop app. This way, you prevent duplicate files with mismatching content.
Your ideal start portal
Your agenda, your planner, your OneNotes, dashboards and reports, chats and telephony, contacts, your projects, your documents, SharePoint sites... and soon even Outlook. Everything is at your fingertips in one safe and managed program, within the Office 365 system.
Not only does it simplify, it also prevents colleagues from using so-called ‘Shadow IT(programs and services of which your IT department has no knowledge and/or management rights)
