Our biggest and favorite take-away? Enhanced Calling.

Microsoft Office365 E5 now offers easy and convenient PSTN Conferencing.

This feature allows attendees to join Skype for Business from any telephone by dialing a local access number, and dial out from a meeting to add others when needed. The dial-in capability is in addition to single-touch join options on PC, smartphone, and browser, and allows people to join an online meeting even in places with no Internet access.

  1. Reduce your phone bill.
    With PSTN conferencing, users can call in to online meetings from a landline connection. Regardless of where your employees are at the time, this feature eliminates the need for a reliable internet connection. This also means you can consolidate your conferencing systems to save money.

E5 enables companies to have phone calls and audio conferences with users allowing whatever kind of phone service they like – Internet-based, mobile or traditional PSTN land line – all from Microsoft’s cloud.
  3. Expand your options.
    Make, receive, and transfer business calls in the office, at home, or on the road.
