Keeping in touch with your customers and prospects can be complex as you juggle mobile phones, landline calls, voicemail, phone and web conferencing, instant messaging, and more.

Using a different technology for all of these functions just creates confusion, frustration, and cost. It is hard to collaborate effectively and get work done - And when it comes to connecting with people outside your organisation, it’s even harder to get people on the same screen. These barriers make it hard and, often, expensive to connect with people.

Telstra Calling for Office 365 overcomes these barriers and puts effective communication and collaboration at your fingertips. No more burdensome management of many disparate solutions; we’ve put it all in one place so you can get on with your job.

It leverages Microsoft’s acknowledged expertise in productivity apps and Telstra’s leadership across voice, networks, and services. It uses Microsoft’s secure cloud services to provide all the normal call handling functions you expect, from call hold, transfer, and forwarding, to voicemail, video calls, and conferencing; all in the cloud.

Why cloud? Because it’s more efficient and scalable, and it lets you access the latest functionality and tools without expensive upgrades or hardware installations. You can use a single business number to connect people through local, long-distance, audio, and video calls, Skype calls, and more.
