This week, Microsoft announced a new promotion that I thought many of you should be aware of, including 35% off Advanced Communications for Enterprise Agreement customers, FastTrack support on Skype for Business and Audio Conferencing for Free.
If standardizing communications through Teams is something your organization has considered, there is no better time to move forward. See below for additional detail, but please reach out to your Velosio Account Representative or me directly to get started. For some, this will be a relatively simple undertaking and for others, there are additional steps to take. Our licensing specialists and Office 365 consultants can help you to formulate a plan that best fits your organization.

Over the past 6 months, organizations around the world have adjusted to remote and hybrid work, pioneering new methods of collaboration, and transforming communication systems to stay connected and productive. By working closely with our customers, we’ve identified key requirements that define how you are using meeting and calling solutions and rethinking your costs to achieve long-term resiliency.
Your organization’s communication needs likely span a spectrum—from the most basic 1:1 meetings and calls to group meetings to large virtual events and conferences. During the pandemic, organizations transformed rapidly moving meetings online and created hybrid workplaces. This environment confirmed the need for multiple ways to join online meetings. For example, participants who do not have reliable internet access to join Microsoft Teams meetings can use Audio Conferencing to join via a dial-in number. Our customers increasingly need to host large scale virtual events ranging from internal town halls to customer events, and Teams can help with these, too. The new Advanced Communications add-on enables large scale events, but also provides structure and admin control to achieve more professional, seamless, and compliant meeting experiences.
To help our customers enable these scenarios and experience the best of what Microsoft Teams can offer in meetings and voice, we’re announcing new promotional offers that deliver these experiences with significant cost savings.
New Microsoft Teams promotional offers:
- Get Audio Conferencing for free, available now for Enterprise Agreement customers1 and starting October 1st, 2020 available for customers purchasing via partners and web2.
- Get 35% off Advanced Communications3, available now for Enterprise Agreement customers, and will be available before the end of the calendar year for customers purchasing via partners and web.
- For Skype for Business customers, we offer FastTrack support along with great pricing offers to help you move to Teams in a cost-effective manner. Contact your account representative for more details.
We are committed to helping organizations everywhere stay connected and productive as you navigate new ways of work. By sharing these promotional offers, we aim to support even more of your meeting needs in a cost-efficient manner.
