Fuze vs Microsoft Teams

What is Fuze?

Fuze is a cloud-based, unified communications platform and contact center, built for the enterprise.

Our intuitive, all-in-one unified communications platform enables a seamless transition between calling, video conferencing, instant messaging and sharing, powered by the industry-leading intelligent cloud architecture. Fuze modernizes the communications experience and empowers the digital and distributed workforce to communicate anywhere, anytime, and across any device.


Built on a cutting-edge cloud voice architecture, Fuze powers the highest-quality calling experience with an innovative phone system that is secure and reliable on a global scale. As an alternative to a legacy on-premises PBX, our unified communications system offers enterprise-grade calling that goes beyond voice by seamlessly integrating with video and real-time content sharing. This all takes place right within the calling experience, on any device, with one single carrier network.

Fuze offers enterprise-grade HD audio and video conferencing for meetings with up to 1,000 participants with dynamic screen and content sharing. With Fuze, collaborative user experiences are able to consistently occur across any device—desktop, mobile, browser and conference room system. Plus, Fuze's unified communications platform is integrated into the way you work with industry-leading presence and calendar integrations for Google and Office365.

Contact Center

As one of the top unified communications companies, Fuze offers cloud contact center solutions to meet a variety of needs, ranging from basic to extremely complex. From dynamic call routing to our whisper feature for real-time training, Fuze empowers call centers to take unparallelled care of their customers. For voice-only call centers, we can provide solutions through our natively-built Fuze Contact Center. For more complex centers with omni-channel requirements, however, we leverage our partnerships with Five9 and NICE+inContact.

Do you need to connect while on the go?
