Remote working has caused many changes in business day to day lives such as introducing audio conferencing. Meetings are a vital part of any business whether it is an internal meeting amongst colleagues or with clients. It’s a great way to discuss future plans, achievements, growth, finances and marketing. However as a result of the pandemic face-to-face meetings have had to be postponed and new ways of communication developed. One way that businesses have stayed in touch with each other and clients is through audio conferencing.

Audio conferences work in a similar way, if not better, as a typical face-to-face meeting would. Services such as Microsoft Office 365 Audio Conferencing or Microsoft Teams have enabled businesses to continue communicating efficiently with their team & clients.

Dial-out allows you to connect others by using Microsoft Teams. Microsoft 365 & Microsoft Teams allows your business to continue working efficiently with one another and stay in touch with your clients wherever you are.
