5 Benefits of Teams Cloud Phones for Hybrid Businesses
When you transition to the best cloud phones, you will experience five key benefits that will help you establish and grow your business.
Cloud business phones like Microsoft Teams cut clutter
One of the first benefits you will likely notice is that Microsoft Teams can help to reduce the clutter caused by an excessive number of devices. Employees can log directly into the cloud phone from their existing laptop, desktop or mobile device. This means that everyone at the business can easily access one phone system without having to tie up their cell phones.
This system setup also means that you do not have to worry about the risk of leaving cords for communication devices behind. Rather than worrying about another set of equipment and accessories to remember to bring back and forth from home, employees will appreciate the simplicity of integrating this technology with their existing devices.
Cloud phones offer mobility without jeopardizing quality
With a cloud-based phone system, your business can also achieve highly desirable mobility without having to jeopardize the quality. All that is needed to set up the system and remain connected is a good internet signal. This means your employees can connect to the system and engage from the office, from their home office, or even while on a work trip.
While providing this incredible flexibility and mobility, the technology also provides the same degree of quality regardless of work location. This means that customers receive the same service whether they reach an employee on a work-from-home day or a day when they are in-office.
Employees can also easily manage all their messages from one place, providing them with the convenience and accessibility needed to do their job from anywhere.
Cloud-based phones help reduce costs
The Teams Cloud app will also eliminate phones as a capital expense for your business. You can instead streamline all your costs into one monthly fee. This creates a more predictable expense that is easier to budget for.

Build in a crisis-resilient culture
If the pandemic has taught businesses nothing else, it has shown the wisdom and value of preparation for potential crises. Companies across the country found themselves thrust into a work-from-home environment with little warning. Having a plan to help your employees navigate any future situations like this can reduce downtime and keep your brand moving forward.

Better work-life balance for your employees
Finally, working with a cloud-based phone system will also greatly enhance the work-life balance for your employees. An incredible 83 percent of employees report that they want a hybrid work environment and a cloud-based phone system will provide this. Employees will find it easier to transition back and forth between their home office and working in the office. This will reduce any frustration with the setup so that employees can embrace all the flexibility of the hybrid work environment without the frustration.
As you fulfill the needs of such a large percentage of the workforce, you will also increase employee satisfaction and retention. Your employees will be less motivated to find another work environment that meets their demands.
