Empower Hong Kong companies to leverage AI infused hub in Office 365 to re-imagine collaboration in the age of modern workplace

February 1, 2019, Hong Kong – Microsoft today launches new Teams capabilities in Office 365 to inspire Hong Kong companies to re-imagine the way they connect, simplify operations and reduce costs. Starting from today, Audio Conferencing (formerly known as PSTN Conferencing) will be available in Hong Kong via Office 365 Teams to help customers re-invent meetings for as low as HKD 32 per person per month*.

Microsoft Teams is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) infused hub for team collaboration in Office 365 that integrates the people, content, and tools any team needs to be more engaged and effective. Users can enjoy full voice capabilities including calling, dial-in conferencing, web conferencing with anyone inside and outside your organization from any device. With Audio Conferencing, users can join meetings from a phone or use Microsoft Teams to dial anybody directly, making it easier for people on the go or without Internet connection. Complemented with other features in Teams such as scheduling assistance, note taking, desktop sharing, uploading files, and chat messaging, this is set to re-invent collaboration in the age of modern workplace.

The combination of audio conferencing and Office 365 delivers a comprehensive meetings solution for every event, be it large or small. For big meetings, users can go live with Microsoft Teams live events. Host webinars, all-hands meetings and other one-to-many presentations with up to 10,000 attendees internal or external to fit the needs of various events.

“With the growing importance of the Greater Bay Area, cross-border collaboration will be key to business success. Thanks to modern workplace technologies, companies can re-imagine the way they connect and get work done. In addition to the trusting, traditional method of dialing into meetings from landline phones, which can cost millions of dollars for a company, new Teams capabilities in Office 365 have and will continue to revamp meetings,” said Emy Chan, Microsoft 365 Product Marketing Manager.

The Teams video conferencing service in Office 365 is based on an intelligent real-time network. This network spans Microsoft’s global data centres in 40 countries, delivering secure, high-quality voice and video traffic around the world.
