Business Phone System

The best Business Phone System for SMBs and nonprofits

Microsoft Teams is an enormously popular collaboration software, with a reported 91% of large US companies using its features and facilitating communications within their teams. You will most likely fall into one of two categories:

Already using Microsoft Teams?
If you’re already using Teams to communicate with your colleagues, Phone setup is especially simple and the phone system follows the same structure as the Teams platform you’re used to. The learning curve is low and the neat features will make your work life significantly more efficient and easy.

Not using Teams yet?
If you haven’t used Microsoft Teams before, you can benefit from two major perks — a feature-reach, simple-to-use Teams Phone software, and the base Teams software, which lets you hold web meetings and conferences, chat with colleagues one-on-one or in groups, and help structure teams to allow easier collaboration.

Lowered costs

Using a cloud-based phone system helps save on upfront costs like hardware procurement and maintenance to recurring costs like licensing fees. Per-user costs start at just $20 per month.

Practical business features

Teams Phone includes features such as auto-attendant, custom call queues, call routing, voicemail and transcribing, and more.

Useful analytics

Microsoft Teams Phone has a built-in visual analytics dashboard that helps find bottlenecks in your call system and improve efficiency for specific employees or the entire company.

Easily scalable

When hiring a new employee, scaling is quick and easy. Setting up a new phone doesn't require purchasing hardware or any new wiring.

User-friendly software

Using Teams as a base software for team collaboration and calls brings down the complexity of learning new software and confusing employees with challenging interfaces.

Frequently Asked Business Phone System Questions

Yes, you can keep your existing numbers when you move to Microsoft Teams. We will port your numbers to Teams, and Microsoft will become your new service provider.

You have several options:

  1. If you prefer a traditional physical office phone, we can set you up with a Teams compatible VoIP phone or headset to give you better mobility. 
  2. You can simply use your computer/laptop/cell phone with the Teams app installed. Either use your cell phone like you would for personal calls (with the separate business number) or your computer with a microphone and headset.

The specific system depends on your business needs, budget, and other factors that we take into consideration during your free assessment. 

We ask questions about how your business works and help you make an informed decision that you are happy with. But to answer the question in general — we prefer Teams Phone because it is part of the Microsoft ecosystem and really helps streamline work without the steep learning curve.
