At BT Wholesale we want to ensure our propositions are adding the best value. Microsoft Teams is a great platform that many businesses rely on, but we wanted to take our support further by adding the extra functionality of allowing phone calls. This is a simple and cost-effective way to get calls in Teams so that we can deliver the greatest benefits to our partners and their customers.”
