Converged UCaaS and CCaaS for Microsoft Teams


In 2020, Vanderlande, a global leader in logistic process automation, initiated a transformative shift to Microsoft Teams Phone in collaboration with AudioCodes Live for Microsoft Teams. This marked a significant transition, setting the stage for further advancements. More recently, Vanderlande leveraged AudioCodes Voca Conversational Interaction Center (CIC) for their mission-critical, 24/7 contact center operations, going from a costly and unreliable CCaaS to cost-effectiveness and resiliency provided by Voca CIC.

Vanderlande is renowned for pioneering logistic process automation solutions prioritizing speed, reliability and efficiency across diverse industries. Their journey with AudioCodes started with the AudioCodes Live for Microsoft Teams managed voice connectivity service which includes around the clock support from AudioCodes global services team. With AudioCodes’ Microsoft- Certified Direct Routing session border controller technology at its core, AudioCodes Live provides seamless connectivity between Teams and the PSTN delivered on a per-user per-month basis, offering predictable costs and simplifying budgets.
