Claiming to be the first US operator to enable subscribers to use their mobile device’s native dialler to receive calls as a Teams endpoint, Verizon launched Verizon Mobile for Microsoft Teams to create a unified business communications experience.
“This is yet another example of how we’re helping customers to adapt and succeed in today’s changing workplace by delivering the flexibility to work from anywhere,” said Verizon Business CEO Sampath Sowmyanarayan.
Verizon lists the key benefits of the new collaboration:
Single number simplicity: Verizon Mobile for Microsoft Teams provides employees the flexibility of being able to work from virtually anywhere without losing context or business presence.
Call quality: Teams calls made with the smartphone dialler are treated as voice calls on the Verizon LTE network
Call transfer: Allows users to move between devices and Teams endpoints during a call without dropping the call
Cost savings: Through an integrated calling solution that can replace stand-alone solutions, Verizon Mobile for Microsoft Teams helps to reduce costs while keeping employees connected
Security: The capability to enforce secure and compliant business policies on all employee communications
With Verizon Mobile for Microsoft Teams, organisations can have a mobile unified collaboration and communication experience that minimises cost and reduces security risks.
