ANTISEL adopts Microsoft Teams Phone and Direct Routing to replace legacy enterprise telephone system.

Founded in 1967, ANTISEL is a leading importer and distributor of laboratory equipment used in healthcare as well as in academic and industrial research settings. While already on Microsoft 365 cloud services, the pandemic made the need for online communications and collaboration even more pressing. Faced with the insufficiency of their legacy telephone system for remote wok, they turned to unified communications expert LOGITEL and Teams Phone. With the new solution, productivity is up, costs are down, and they’re not looking back.

The challenge

Seamless communication –from any location and any device– was a critical requirement during the pandemic.

ANTISEL had a fundamental need for a unified collaboration platform that supports remote work moving forward.

The world is moving away from old-fashioned phone services and their legacy phone system proved to be a chocking point for productivity, thus in need of replacement.

The solution

The right partner was soon at hand to help. Founded in 2003, LOGITEL is a well-established unified communications provider assisting organization with the adoption of modern, cloud-based telephone services.

Over 200 users were transitioned to Teams Phone, while also implementing Direct Routing with their SIP trunk and new SBC networking infrastructure also provided and deployed by LOGITEL.

The solution included:

•A full PBX replacement via migration to Teams Phone for 210 seats with managed direct routing.
•Configured call queues and automated attendant.
•ANTISEL also wanted to take advantage of newer functionality in a modern calling service and to have flexible dialing plans to suit   varying departmental needs.

Migration to Teams Phone for over 200 users, including licensing and new SBC infrastructure for Direct Routing with ANTISEL’s existing telco carrier.

Teams Phone solution provides business productivity and customer engagement benefits as all-in-one solution that integrates completely with ANTISEL’s existing Microsoft services.
