Webinar Intelligent Communications with M365 Voice

Long View invites you to join us on March 29th where we will demonstrate the advantages of Teams Phone System and change the way you think about your telephony solution.

Teams ability to replace your entire business phone system with a managed cloud service enables employees to be more productive utilizing Teams with headsets and removes the expense and support of most handsets and traditional phone systems.

Microsoft Teams Calling provides your business with options for either a fully 100% cloud-based solution OR a hybrid environment utilizing the required capabilities of PBX systems combined with the flexibility of Microsoft Teams. Microsoft took the complicated and expensive equipment required at your office location to bridge your VoIP calls with the PSTN and made it a subscription service in the cloud. You can use Microsoft Teams exactly like you use your regular phone and do it securely from any device and from anywhere in the world as long as you have Teams running and internet access.

“Doing more with less” means maximizing the impact of Microsoft 365 solutions while simplifying licensing, management, and vendor landscapes. Pressures from the evolving global economy are requiring organizations like yours to reduce costs and optimize operations as they continue to shift to a world of hybrid work. Through the Do More with Less Workshop, we help customers identify these cost savings, while also realizing additional value.

The Do More With Less Workshop focuses on two areas of impact:

Our workshop will help you identify capabilities in Microsoft 365 that could optimize operations, improve business agility, and empower secure collaboration while enabling the full potential of hybrid work.

Microsoft 365 enables new, efficient partners of work so employees can thrive in a hybrid work environment. And you can use the power of a unified system to empower employees and keep them engaged in today’s tremendously changed world of work.

This workshop will bring these ideas to life and help you understand exactly how Microsoft 365 can empower you to deliver positive impact.
