GIVE TEAMS A VOICE
GET TO WORK
Schools and academies already have access to free Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) licences to give you the latest office, teaching and learning tools, plus secure email and file storage you can access from any device. These licences can be easily upgraded to accommodate the Microsoft's Phone System app.
We will migrate your existing numbers to Gamma, the UK's top SIP provider. This means your school will be prepared for Openreach's PSTN and ISDN switch-off deadline and will benefit from free calls to UK landlines and mobiles. You will enjoy business continuity features and protection from dial-through fraud too.
Use Microsoft-accredited handsets or headsets plugged into your device of choice to enjoy all the features you would get from a traditional phone system. Work from anywhere but feel connected to your colleagues, students and parents and enjoy easy collaboration using Microsoft's unified communications tools.
Schools will not miss out on the features they are used from a traditional phone system. They can choose to use desk handsets or softphones and still use an automated attendant and voicemail-to-email, while enjoying easy home working and push-to-talk messaging to replace walkie-talkies. Of course, they also benefit from full integration with the rest of the Teams' unified communications tools they may already be familiar with.
STAY IN TOUCH
As well as enjoying increased call capacity to handle more calls at the same time, you can also ensure you can stay in touch with parents and students wherever you are working without disclosing personal mobile numbers or risking calls being ignored because the number is withheld. Teams can present the schools’ main number from whichever extension staff members are calling from. You can use Teams for parents' evenings too.
DRIVE DOWN COSTS
This should be a welcome development as schools get to grips with the cost of social distancing. This solution does not require any upfront capital. Like Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams and our calling plans are a subscription service with all call and support costs included in a set monthly fee. You can add users as you grow by simply adding on extra licences.
