Next Telecom is pleased to launch its new range of market leading Microsoft (MS) Teams Direct Routing call plans. Since launching the MS Teams Direct Routing product in February 2019, Next Telecom has continued its strategy of targeting Microsoft Partners and larger direct clients for Teams deployments.
Tristan Plummer, Next Telecom CTO said that MS partners find the Teams calling plans attractive as they can retain their Microsoft licensing while adding a revenue stream from the voice channel and call usage. “Next Telecom sell the service as a stand-alone offering and don’t require their clients to migrate their Office 365 services away from their current MS Partner, enhancing the MS Partners product suite.”
Microsoft Teams is the fastest growing application in Microsoft history. More than 350k organisations worldwide now use Microsoft Teams.
Plummer said, “We are seeing increasing demand for Teams Direct Routing driven by the adoption of the Office 365 platform along with the NBN rollout and ISDN network decommissioning. We are very excited about expansion into APAC and the EU and with the continued growth of this product in Australia. Next Telecom is building a solid pipeline of clients in this space. We know our clients want a Unified Collaboration and Communication experience and we see Teams as the perfect vehicle for that.”
The new Next Telecom Direct Routing rate plans are highly competitive and offer unlimited standard calling for as low as $15 per user per month.
“We have been running user training with MS Partners and they all come away excited about the opportunity Direct Routing offers. They see the demand from their customers and we help them to fulfil that demand. We collaborate extensively with our partners and provide assistance with marketing, sales support and delivery of the product. Our provisioning process is now highly automated, and we can get services online making calls and video conferencing, almost instantly,” said Plummer.
The Next Telecom Teams Direct Routing is now available to clients in most APAC countries with expansion into Europe planned for early 2020.
