The future of remote work
Get started with Teams
Video calling made simple
Holding video calls with colleagues, clients and partners has never been more simple. Set up remote video conferences in Microsoft Teams and take collaboration to the next level. Replicate the look and feel of in person office meetings by using custom backgrounds for your video call – see your colleagues and chat about projects in real time without leaving the comfort of your home.
Keep your Business connected, wherever you are
In addition to the Teams chat, video call and file share functionality, you can incorporate Microsoft 365 Business Voice. The cloud based platform allows you to use chat, video call, conference and voice call all within one app. Call external phone numbers without leaving your Teams network, sync your business details and manage calls instantly, from your office or on the go with any compatible device. Our team can talk you through the benefits of Business Voice, which we highly recommend for small and medium businesses.
