Should your organisation consider incorporating 1-Voice2Teams? 

The outbreak of COVID-19 and the need for a virtual means of connection during the pandemic skyrocketed Zoom and Microsoft Teams from relative obscurity into a mainstay of society. 

Today, they have emerged as household names, being used by kindergarteners and seniors, schools and churches to businesses to connect.

Although hundreds of millions of people use one or both platforms for video conferencing, Teams is believed to do much more for businesses when integrated with an enterprise-level voice communications platform.

In fact, Microsoft Teams has been on a growth curve since the early part of 2020. The latest reported figures indicate the service has 115 million daily active users worldwide (November 2020). As users continue to flock to the service, driven by the need for a reliable collaboration tool deeply embedded in the Microsoft software estate, it would appear the product is only heading upward.
