Fuze Simplifies Enterprise Communications with Microsoft Teams Integration

February 25, 2020 GMT

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 25, 2020--

Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications provider for the modern global enterprise, today announced an integration with Microsoft Teams, a workspace collaboration application that is part of Microsoft Office 365.

The Fuze integration for Teams improves the overall enterprise communications and collaboration experience by providing a seamless handoff between the two platforms when moving from Teams channels to Fuze calls or meetings. This integration also includes Teams-enabled commands for one-click transition from chat-to-live video or calling. By combining Teams’ 20 million active users with Fuze’s enterprise UCaaS solution and global telephony in more than 110 countries, this integration enables cross-platform collaboration, encouraging greater digital inclusivity.

“At Fuze, we provide enterprises with fully integrated, seamless experiences that eliminate the barriers to productivity so workers can spend more time driving business forward,” said Jed Brown, SVP of Product at Fuze. “This integration with Microsoft Teams is the latest development in our effort to enable cross-platform collaboration and increase workforce proficiency. By integrating with Teams, enterprise IT leaders can transition their entire telephony infrastructure to the cloud, gaining the same rich capabilities as a traditional on-premises solution.”

Key benefits of the Fuze and Teams integration include:

  • Meet anytime, every time. Fuze’s integration with Teams enables users to create meetings with ease. Simply enter @fuze in the chat field of any Teams conversation and attendees will enjoy vibrant HD video and flawless audio quality, whether joining via desktop, mobile, or web.
  • Call anyone and everyone. With this integration, users can launch calls to contacts, numbers or extensions from a Teams conversation or the sidebar, with exceptional quality every time.

Fuze’s integration with Teams will be generally available starting January 2020 with call escalation coming in early 2020. More information on the integration can be found here.
