Go Green with Teams

Posted by Cherie Howlett on 26-May-2022 12:37:11

When we started Jola over 8 years ago, we didn’t have any offices, we were using our own laptops and it made sense for us to run a paperless office and share documents in the cloud. As we grew, we retained this ethos and developed it by implementing re-use then re-cycle processes for hardware internally and for kit sent to customers.

Using Microsoft Teams as a substitute for face-to-face meetings in many cases, we have reduced our carbon footprint and our overheads and still managed to achieve our high growth targets.

Over 500,000 organisations use Microsoft Teams as their default messaging platform, however their calling plans are basic and do not include call recording, which creates an exciting new opportunity for the channel.

Jola is a wholesale SIP provider offering SIP and PSTN replacement services to the channel. We developed an automated Direct Routing Solution, giving Teams users a cost-effective and feature-rich alternative to Microsoft Calling Plans, which now includes Teams Call Recording.

Direct Routing provides a PSTN solution for the Microsoft Teams Phone System. It allows users to make and receive UK and international calls to, and from, non-Teams users, without needing a hosted telephony system or PBX. We offer unlimited local call packages in 50+ countries. Jola’s Direct Routing comes with a comprehensive management portal called SIP Manager and offers a cost-effective alternative to Microsoft’s Calling Plan. Resellers can automatically provision key components of Direct Routing without needing to install Microsoft PowerShell.


Jola is an award-winning, channel-only supplier of business communications, specialising in mobile data SIMs. Jola was one of the first channel companies in the UK to launch Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams. Since then we have added many new features.  For help uncovering Direct Routing Opportunities for Microsoft Teams request our Partner Pack.
