UniVoIP’s Direct Route for Microsoft Teams is a perfect solution for several reasons.

Setting up Microsoft Teams users could be a time-consuming challenge, but with UniVoIP’s unique automated onboarding, the task is significantly simplified. You can set up over 100 Teams users in 15 minutes or less. As a result, you can get started with a Teams phone system almost immediately.
All you need to do is activate the Direct Routing voice paths, select or add new telephone numbers, and associate telephone numbers with users. You can automatically port existing numbers and verify service activation by tracking inbound and outbound calls.

Advantages of Direct Route for Microsoft Teams
If you’re reviewing your voice capabilities, making the decision to use a Microsoft Teams phone system is an easy one. It’s easy to deploy and maintain, and it’s easy for users due to the consistent interface. In addition, you can reduce telephone costs and maximize your Teams investment.
