CallTower's Director of Channel Sales - Northeast, Sam Barron, broke down CallTower's Microsoft Teams offerings and much more during our Discover the Selling Power of Microsoft Teams Webinar. Below are some of the lessons learned from this great presentation, read through them to discover the selling power of this robust new solution from Microsoft:
Microsoft Teams, Today
Microsoft Teams is the latest Unified Communication (UC) tool from Microsoft - it essentially creates a single hub for teamwork and collaboration with shared access to the Office 365 suite of tools - complete with chat, calling, meetings and other options. It's the next evolution of Microsoft UC after the consecutive advents of Lync, followed by Skype for Business - and it's already huge!
Microsoft recently reported that Teams has over 20M active daily users. If that's not enough of an eye-popper for you, consider the following: according to Nemeretes Research, 67% of domestic organizations either are already using Teams or plan to do so in 2020 or 2021. Of that massive number, 56.2% were planning on using Teams as their primary telephony system. That kind of insane growth is exactly what enterprising channel partners are looking for.
Leveraging Teams with CallTower
CallTower is a long-time Microsoft Partner, as a Certified SPLA Partner since 2008, a Cloud Services Provider since 2014 and even a Top 100 CSP Growth Partner for four years running. With this pedigree, partners can trust us to take care of their clients when it comes to Microsoft Teams.
CallTower is a Direct Routing Partner for Microsoft Teams, which means instead of getting Teams-associated telephony services directly from Microsoft, users can get it from us instead. CallTower provides competitive and flexible calling plans for Microsoft Teams Direct Routing, which means a much higher ROI. These calling plans offer a number of benefits, most notably our white glove implementation team, live training, and 24/7/365 US-based support - things Microsoft does not offer.
In addition, CallTower's network is specifically optimized for voice, resulting in better clarity and higher uptimes. CallTower's Direct Routing also has phone number re-routing services, which can save the day in the case of a Microsoft outage. You can also use CallTower for your Office 365 services and licenses, which means all your Microsoft services will still be on a single bill.
