What is CONNECT 2Teams?
New for 2020 – In November 2019, Microsoft announced that the amount of daily active users had doubled in less than 6 months, reaching 20 million, and they are showing no signs of slowing down with the launch of Business Voice.
Adding in to Office 365, CONNECT 2Teams provides users with access to the normal phone system alongside the existing Microsoft Teams functionality – a single Unified Communications Suite! Verstech CONNECT 2Teams works alongside the rest of the CONNECT Voice family, meaning the fantastic functionality of having desk phones and Teams, depending on users choice and location.
With COVID-19, we’ve seen the use of Teams skyrocket, and as businesses look to the future, with working from home expected to be a daily occurrence, there’s never been a better time to make your phone system work for you, instead of the other way round!

Market Leading Disaster Recovery
It’s the worst time for any business, but things do go wrong. The building burns down, or a natural disaster prevents your staff getting to the office. But the show must go on (can’t beat a Queen reference); and with our Market Leading Disaster Recovery, your numbers can be forwarded to another line in a matter of seconds. It’s better to know you’re prepared and ready for the worst, rather than wait until it happens.
Set your own Caller ID
Subject to some checks on the number [making sure you’re not ringing out as Buckingham Palace or anything crafty like that], we can allow you to set your own outbound Caller ID.
Portable Phone Numbers
If you’re bringing numbers to us, no problem – we can port 95% of UK Numbers to our service. If you’re leaving us, if we’ve provided new numbers, they are provided by BT/Openreach so you can be sure you can migrate the service if your requirements change.
30 day rolling contract
Our SIP trunks come with a rolling 30-day contract. That means, if ever you need to cancel, you only give us a months’ notice – there’s no minimum term. Additionality, for short term service enhancements (like we need an extra 40 lines for 1 day), there’s no contract at all.
Like all our CONNECT services, it’s on one bill with everything else – might as well try and keep the beancounters happy! It makes it very easy and transparent to see your exact spend.
