Video Conferencing with Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has become so much more than a group chat application.

Teams includes support for video conferencing for groups from huddle rooms to enterprise board rooms. Video conferencing is the most natural technology for business communications with people in separate places.

Teams lets you conference with people inside or outside your workspace.

Online meetings are simple. Set up meetings with one-touch to join. Escalate audio conferences to video conferences. Schedule meetings and take notes during calls. Chat or hold polls during conferences. Present a webinar for 10,000 virtual attendees.

Microsoft Teams is designed to incorporate and make simple the workplace technologies we expect today.

We sell devices and bundles that are certified to work with Microsoft Teams. Keep your eyes open for products being added! Teams compatible video conferencing equipment is being released steadily.

2019 is a big year for Microsoft Teams.
