Enabling seamless, enhanced meetings and collaboration has become a top priority for organisations of all sizes, as they bed down the remote and hybrid working model.

Tumi Masobe, Business Development Manager at Axiz, says businesses have quickly migrated to Microsoft Teams as they embrace the new normal and seek better quality and more features from their meeting and collaboration tools. “Everyone is using Microsoft Teams now. Local businesses are moving to Teams as they standardise with Microsoft because it makes collaboration and document sharing so much easier. They are also harnessing Teams features such as the ability to call people on a mobile or landline number.”

Says Masobe: “AudioCodes was the first company to integrate with Teams and is a trusted advisor for Teams, voice and video collaboration. Offering a complete Teams solution, AudioCodes’ portfolio includes hardware such as audio-visual devices and room solutions, as well as software and services.”

With the solution, AudioCodes enables enhanced security, while at the same time optimising media streams to assure quality. Local customers also appreciate AudioCodes features such as Meeting Insights, which captures all meeting content to transcribe minutes with AI-supported speaker identification, logs all decisions and action items and assigns them to participants.

Available via Axiz, Audiocodes Live provides a selection of managed service options – each tailored to meet different needs, ranging from Teams Direct Routing to cloud-based tools to simplify user management, to integration with existing on-premises telephony.
