Voiceflex UCaaS Platform Review: Streamlined Voice and Collaboration – UC Today

5 minutes, 14 seconds Read

Microsoft Teams is an incredible platform for collaboration, unifying file, and knowledge sharing, with messaging, conferencing, and even artificial intelligence. However it doesn’t support voice as we are all used to from a traditional PABX, UC or UCaaS perspective.

Many traditional platforms will interface with Teams, via API or an App but a business phone license is required.

Voiceflex, a multi-award-winning telecoms carrier, offers unified communication as a service, connectivity, SIP, AI recording, conversational IVR and Contact Centre: Voiceflex UCaaS offers Flow. Integrates directly with Teams via an embedded App, enabling traditional voice applications, without the need for a business phone license.

You only get one chance to make a first impression. Flow gives you an all-in-one traditional voice environment, for in & outbound calls.

We took a closer look at Voiceflex flow, to determine how it can help companies increase the return on their Microsoft Teams investment.

What is Voiceflex Flow? Truly Unified Communications

Voiceflex Flow, created in partnership with the Nordics-based communications provider, Telavox, is a UCaaS solution can be sold standalone that brings telephony, meetings, messaging, and contact center capabilities together in a single app, available within Microsoft Teams,

With Voiceflex Flow, companies can access omnichannel communication capabilities, integrations with third-party solutions (like CRM platforms) and unified presence features, all within a simplified user environment. There are even self-service controls, which allow users to quickly change the setup of their customer service and voice environments based on their specific needs.


“We understand, there is no point in selling a fully loaded Flow UCaaS license, with a Teams App, as Teams, will take care of the UC element, we have reduced the licence feature set, which in turn has reduced the cost. Another major benefit of Flow is that it’s completely white labelled, you can call the application whatever you want, and you own a unique brand,” says Paul Taylor, CCO of Voiceflex.
