Switching the Office Phone System to Microsoft Teams Telephony for Nonprofits

Would you like ONE communication and collaboration system for calling, chat and video conferencing? If you use Office 365, you already have it.

Community IT has assisted several clients switch to Microsoft Teams for all their telephone needs. In this free webinar, Sarah Wolfe talks with Community IT CTO Matt Eshleman on

Learn how Microsoft Teams features work for nonprofit office phones and how to switch securely and easily.

Should your nonprofit consider a switch to Microsoft Teams telephony?

Join Community IT’s CTO Matt Eshleman and Sarah Wolfe for an in-depth discussion of the pros and cons of ditching your physical office phones system to use Microsoft Teams for staff phones, and how to handle the change over if you decide to switch.

As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT experience.

There is (slightly) more to the change management than just asking everyone to use Teams now to make all phone calls. Learn how Microsoft Teams features work for nonprofit office phones and how to switch securely and easily.

Community IT is proudly vendor-agnostic and our webinars cover a range of topics and discussions. This conversation will feature a realistic look at the main virtual telephony tool available – but will also discuss the options for your nonprofit if you are not using Microsoft Teams or don’t have the Microsoft Office 365 package. Webinars are never a sales pitch, always a way to share our knowledge with our community.
