Office 365/GSuite Backup
- Contrary to popular belief your Office 365 files and email are not being backed up by Microsoft. Your data is likely in one point of presence. Although protected it is not 100% disaster proof and you don’t have a copy of it unless you are using a backup application that specifically integrates to backup this data. Veeam has an amazing solution for this problem!

UCaaS – These are our favorite Unified Communications as a Service options.
These stand out for their ease of use and features. A UCaaS rolls many communication features/functions into a single platform. Call reporting, video meeting, mobile apps, softphone, and full integration with most popular productivity suites, ERPs and much more. These platforms differ from traditional VOIP or PBX in that everything is cloud managed.
- MS Teams with Calling
