Teams Collaboration platforms (Teams) have revolutionized how hybrid workers come together and interact across a wide array of digital channels, including chat, video, document sharing, video conferencing and voice calls. In essence, Teams acts as a fully-integrated hub to enable and energize workplace conversations and teamwork.
As this global organization was pilot-testing the integration of voice into their Teams platform, they experienced a significant problem that could potentially derail the entire project. As testing was rolled out, the users were quickly overwhelmed by unwanted phone calls, in the form of robocalls and spam calls. Prior to Teams, incoming phone calls rang standard desk phones and unwanted calls were a non-issue, as they were sent to voicemail. With Teams, every incoming call simultaneously rang all of a user’s connected devices. The test users were unable to control the chaos, as each incoming call rang their laptop/desktop, tablet, desk phone and cell phone. The result was that Teams was causing a downturn in productivity and team member communications.
The customer turned to Mutare for help in blocking unwanted voice calls with the Mutare Voice Traffic Filter.
Mutare quickly engaged and performed an assessment (Voice Traffic Analysis) of the organization’s call traffic. Based upon a month’s worth of the client’s call detail records (CDR), the size and impact of the problem was uncovered. The analysis revealed that a significant proportion of incoming calls – nearly 14% – were from spammers or robocallers. By removing these calls, the Teams issue could immediately be eradicated. The remedy came with a 239% ROI and resulted in a projected annual productivity savings of $407,015.
