Microsoft Teams is a highly popular platform for video conferencing, online meetings and chat messaging that many businesses use these days. Simultaneously, nobody wants to miss out on the familiar functions of a professional enterprise communications system that should be as user-friendly and manageable as possible.

Depending on the level of integration, the range of functions will be expanded with all the apps and functionalities that myApps standardly has to offer. Make external phone calls directly from the Microsoft Teams client using your own business extension – with the innovaphone myApps Custom app. Boost your availability across various devices, all without requiring additional Microsoft licenses.
According to the recommendations of Microsoft, the innovaphone PBX can be connected with Microsoft Teams using “Microsoft Direct Routing” via a certified SBC. This enables interoperability between the innovaphone PBX, the connected devices (e.g. desk phones, softphones, analog end devices, etc.) and Microsoft Teams.
The communications client innovaphone myApps is integrated in form of a customized app and can be launched directly within Microsoft Teams. The presence status of each individual innovaphone user will be visible. Our objective - seamless and user-friendly integration of both systems.
