TeamMate Works

The TeamMate Connector is a unique add-on to Microsoft Office 365 which allows you to integrate any existing PBX Phone System into Microsoft Teams. It activates the Calls features/app in Microsoft Teams as a softphone so that the Teams user can make/receive calls without changing his/her phone system. Keep everything as it is but add Microsoft Teams as your softphone.

Set up your TeamMate Partner portal with your Branding settings and invite your 1st business customer to connect their existing PBX to their Microsoft Office 365 tenant.  Here is information on required Microsoft licenses.

Set up the Direct Routing link and add users by Teams and PBX credentials into TeamMate. Watch TeamMate automate the rest. Add in the optional Teams Application for advanced functionality.

In short, where-ever you use Teams you will have your PBX Phone System – mobile, PC, Mac. Add Microsoft Teams as a primary or secondary softphone.  Call control remains on the PBX. The Microsoft Teams Calls application becomes your softphone.
