Elite Group Launch – Teams Talk, Enabling Full Voice Services Through Ms Teams


Technology providers adapting to changes

Considering the amount of people that have moved from the office to the home in recent weeks there has been a massive strain on existing software and systems to support them. It’s meant technology providers have been developing new ways to enhance current systems and developing new services to support business during this time

Some of these developments may have been scheduled for down the track, so one of the positives to come from the current crisis is the fast-tracking of new and exciting technology and collaboration enhancements.

Microsoft is arguably the biggest when it comes to collaboration systems and MS Teams has had an explosive take up not only through business but in education and socially. They recently had a spike reaching almost 3 billion meeting minutes in one day!

Microsoft have 77% of the global desktop market


200 Million O365 licences globally


7 Million UK O365 licences in the UK


Teams now has 75 million daily active users, adding 31 million in just over a month


92% of users don’t currently enable voice outside of Teams


At Elite Group we can help support your business through this change, with the highest level of Partner accreditations including Microsoft Gold Partner, and our team of dedicated technical consultants, we can deliver the right service for your business. Having seen the need for more options to allow you to communicate with your employees and customers, Elite Group has further enhanced our technology and collaboration services with Teams Talk, a feature-rich voice solution for your business… and what is better it is free until 31st July 2020!


Teams Talk

As a new product offering to enhance the features of MS Teams, Elite Group have now launched Teams Talk. Utilised in conjunction with MS Teams, Teams Talk utilises carrier-grade infrastructure to deliver an always-on service whether you are using Microsoft Teams in the office or remotely. Direct Routing is the flexible, accessible and cost-effective alternative to other calling plans allowing you to make calls external to your employees and customers from Microsoft Teams.

Teams Talk unlocks the full potential of the Microsoft Teams environment by enabling feature-rich voice services in a simple price per user model.
