September 27, 2021
SALT LAKE CITY, UT, BOSTON, MA, CHICAGO, IL – CallTower, an international leader in delivering cloud-based enterprise-class unified communications, contact center and collaboration solutions, was named by Microsoft today as one of the solution providers for Operator Connect for Microsoft Teams. Operator Connect delivers PSTN voice access to Teams users to deliver an enhanced customer experience. In addition, Operator Connect improves integration between networks streamlining provisioning and management of users and enhanced support models that will augment the quality of service
Operator Connect allows Teams administrators to open the “Operators” tab in the Teams admin center to connect calling services, acquire phone numbers, and assign users. Operators, such as CallTower, will provide technical support and manage the voice network and infrastructure. Operators can also enable PSTN voice services in regions currently unavailable through Microsoft Calling Plans. Implementation of voice services can be online in a matter of hours.
As a Microsoft Gold Partner, CallTower has been voice enabling Microsoft 365 solutions for years. With the addition of Operator Connect, CallTower is in a unique position in the marketplace with three Teams voice enablement solutions to enhance productivity and efficiency for customers: Direct Routing and Operator Connect for Teams, and within Microsoft 365 GCC High.
