Unleash the power of Microsoft Teams with an existing PBX telephone system

Microsoft Teams is the next generation of collaboration tools for the modern workplace. When migrating to Microsoft Teams you do not want to sacrifice important PBX features. Until MachTeams®, integrated support in Microsoft Teams for an existing PBX was not available such as retaining your existing phone number and dial by extension.

Introducing MachTeams®, a patented and fully automated service for calling in Microsoft Teams, while maintaining your existing PBX. MachTeams® works in minutes without PBX migration or phone number porting.

MachTeams® Benefits

You should consider all Microsoft Teams limitations before migrating. There is no coexistence between Microsoft Teams and third party PBX phone systems. The only option you have is to fully migrate and accepting all limitations, or simply continue to use two separated platforms. The biggest advantage of MachTeams® - Extension is that you can maintain your existing PBX system and don’t have to compromise on functionality. You can continue to use your existing number plan with dial by extension. MachTeams® also integrates fixed and mobile devices, allowing the caller to dial out using the company main phone number directly from the Microsoft Teams smartphone app. Another great feature is that when a Microsoft Teams user is unavailable the call can be forwarded to any group, extension or to the receptionist.

How does it work?

Microsoft Teams user is linked to an existing PBX extension for example 201. The username, password and extension (201) of the user is entered in MachCloud® self-service web portal. MachCloud®’s geo redundant platform ensures that the fixed device at the workplace is replaced by the Microsoft Teams user smartphone.

It is not required to migrate all PBX users simultaneously to Microsoft Teams. Users who are not ready simply continue to use the PBX system as before. Important to know is that MachTeams®-Extension does not make any changes to the PBX configuration, SIP trunk or external telephone numbers.
