If you’ve read any of my previous posts on the AudioCodes blog, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of getting out and about to visit customers whenever I can. Unfortunately, like pretty much everyone else on the planet, I’ve been forced to curtail my international travels a fair bit over the past eighteen months or so.
But recently, things have started to look up.
A Little Help For Our Friends
After giving an online presentation about Microsoft Teams and the hybrid work era to a long-standing AudioCodes customer, the company’s IT manager asked me if I could meet up in person to help him address some of the concerns they had about migrating to Microsoft Teams. I didn’t have to be asked twice.
The management board of this company wanted to migrate to Microsoft Teams as fast as possible, with a cost-effective solution covering their two branches. However, they were still using a legacy PBX and getting up and running quickly with Microsoft Teams seemed like an unachievable target.
Like many enterprises, this company had the following issues, which to them appeared almost insurmountable:
- A lack of IT staff knowledgeable and experienced in unified communications (UC) migration, and no resources to manage and operate the Microsoft Teams deployment.
- Unfamiliarity with session border controllers and Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams.
- The time and cost of deploying the solution from start to finish.
- Meeting the SLA on the day after deployment.
Could I help? Of course I could!
