VOSS Solutions announced that its flagship product, VOSS-4-UC, can now enable users for Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft Teams is the chat-based workspace component of Microsoft’s Office 365. Microsoft’s unified communications (UC) roadmap indicates that Microsoft Teams will be the combined platform for persistent chat, instant messaging, collaboration, enterprise voice and conferencing.
VOSS-4-UC, available to channel partners, helps customers design, deploy, operate and optimize advanced UC environments, on-premises or in the cloud. VOSS-4-UC enables users for Microsoft Teams as part of the user provisioning process, as well as Skype for Business and Exchange.
While Microsoft Teams is a cloud-based service that is part of Office 365, Skype for Business and Exchange services can be provisioned regardless of whether they are on-premises or online. Users who are migrated to Skype for Business from legacy PBX systems via VOSS-4-UC can be enabled for Microsoft Teams as part of that migration process. As Microsoft adds more administrative features for Microsoft Teams, those features will be added to VOSS-4-UC.
“VOSS has been providing enterprise-grade UC migration and management solutions for Microsoft UC environments for some time now,” said Christopher Martini, vice president at VOSS Solutions. “The evolution of Skype for Business into Microsoft Teams is a logical step for Microsoft, as they look to capitalize on the tremendous amount of interest in these tools at the enterprise level. We are excited by the momentum building around our solutions, as we introduce advanced automation to improve the productivity and collaboration of organizations around the world. Provisioning Microsoft Teams is a logical next-step for VOSS, and we are pleased to be at the forefront of the UC management market in offering this crucial capability.”
