How Will the Zoom and Deutsche Telekom Bundle Work?
In a nutshell, Zoom X is a cloud-based communication and collaboration tool that helps businesses improve their productivity and efficiency. It offers a variety of features, such as one-on-one chat sessions, video conferencing, screen sharing, file sharing, and more. What sets this technology apart from the competition is its focus on providing a simple, user-friendly interface that is easy to use and navigate.
For voice conversations, business users no longer require their phone system using Zoom X. They will be able to communicate from a single app, independent of location or device, by utilizing Zoom Phone with a fixed German or international mobile number provided by Deutsche Telekom. Calls to a landline, for example, can be redirected to a cell phone – while the call is in progress – with a single click.
As today’s enterprises aspire for frictionless collaboration and the management and protection of user data, Zoom wants to give the tools to help businesses succeed. This collaborative service is a significant step toward meeting the needs of our worldwide customers since it provides them with the local data security capabilities they need without sacrificing flexibility.
Zoom X, powered by Telekom, unites the best of both worlds: Zoom’s usual flawless and easy video communication platform and the best of Telekom network’s maximum stability, performance, and connectivity, along with additional features like complete transmission and voice functions. This allows businesses to offer the most value to their employees, partners, and consumers through digital communication and collaboration for everyone to profit.
