Teams Talk is an all-in-one unified communications solution that allows you to make and receive external calls via your Microsoft Teams environment.
Using Direct Routing to connect Microsoft Teams to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), it brings all your business communications together in one easy to use platform. This makes it the ideal solution for remote working as calls can be handled anytime, anywhere and on any device, giving you and your employees greater flexibility and mobility.
Get more from your phone system with Microsoft Teams
Teams Talk allows you to manage and route all your business calls through your Microsoft Teams application.
Underpinned by Air IT’s Hosted VoIP solution, Teams Talk for Microsoft Teams provides all the features and functionality of a traditional business telephone system. This makes it easy and familiar to use, whilst giving you a more modern and flexible way to communicate with your customers and colleagues.
Teams Talk further expands your business telephony and the capabilities of Microsoft Teams with advanced features and functions, including PCI compliant call-recording and reporting.
Telephony challenges with remote working
The pandemic highlighted a significant unreadiness for remote working within many organisations. When operational requirements needed to continue beyond the office premises, businesses quickly turned to off the shelf solutions such as Microsoft Teams, which comes included as standard in Office 365 Business and Enterprise plans.
The reason why so many businesses turned to Teams is because it provides an all-in-one, ready-made solution for teamwork and collaboration, with features including:
- Instant messaging – quickly chat and send instant messages to colleagues
- Meetings and conferences – schedule calls, with or without video and screen sharing
- File sharing – create, share and edit files in real-time
- Organise and plan – manage your calendar, tasks and projects
- Free calls to colleagues – make and receive internal calls
But whilst Microsoft Teams provides an ideal solution for internal communications, many businesses still struggled to maintain seamless communications externally due to the lack of flexibility with their existing, on-premise phone systems. To avoid a repeat of this and ensure full continuity whilst working from home, businesses must modernise their telephony with a flexible solution such as Air IT’s Hosted Voice and Teams Talk.

Alternative hybrid integration with Air IT Hosted Voice technology
Hosted Voice offers so much more than a traditional phone system. It enables you to achieve an agile workforce and the ability to keep everything connected and protected in one place.
A steppingstone between a traditional analogue phone system and a modern digital phone system, Air IT’s Microsoft Teams phone system with Hosted Voice allows you to blend physical handsets and Teams only users, so employees can access calls anywhere, anytime – in the office or on the go.
Equipment to get connected
When you integrate Teams Talk with Microsoft Teams, all your users will physically need is a headset to make and receive calls.
However, we understand some businesses may still prefer to use traditional handsets which will need to be compatible with your new setup.
We can offer suitable handsets which pair with Air IT Hosted Voice. You can choose from a wide range of Teams compatible handsets, to extend the experience of Microsoft Teams to your desktop and shared devices seamlessly.
