Many organisations have adopted Microsoft Teams as a primary method of communication since the pandemic hit in 2020, but most have not yet released its full potential. Microsoft Teams Click-To-Call is an example of how Microsoft Teams can be supercharged to improve efficiency and productivity.
Using Microsoft Teams you can Click-To-Call any number from a web browser and call directly from your computer, removing the need to manually enter a telephone number. This feature helps increase productivity and streamlines the calling process. It’s ideal for organisations that make multiple external calls, especially sales teams who are prospecting new leads using the Internet.
