Landis Technologies is excited to announce Policy Call Recording for Teams, the first component of our Microsoft Teams first Contact Center to be released to GA.

The Microsoft Graph updateRecordingStatus API has now gone GA so we are eager to provide this functionality to our customers”, Landis Technologies CEO Matt Landis noted. “We have provided many Skype for Business customers with a call recording solution and are eager to bring our innovations to Microsoft Teams.”

The policy call recording functionality is provided from inside the Landis Contact Center Teams App which is already validated and available by browsing available apps inside Teams. Call Recording functionality can be used by organizations even if they are not interested in other Contact Center functionality.

Global Sales Manager, Wendell Martin says “Landis Policy Call Recording is a cloud service, so getting started with policy based call recording just takes a few minutes to get setup and going, unlike many other solutions in the market. Also, our solution is a ‘Teams First’ solution, so its built exclusively for Teams and looks and feels like a Teams solution.”

Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams Presence

Landis Demonstrates Contact Search with Presence Utilizing the New Graph Presence API

Landis Technologies demonstrates contact search with presence utilizing the new Microsoft Graph presence API.

Landis Technologies managing owner Matt Landis notes: “This is a nice addition to our Teams Contact Center and allows it to show the presence status for users that contact center agents may want to add to a call.” Matt also gives some realworld application feedback on the new Microsoft Teams Graph Presence API, “From our informal, stopwatch based tests it appears the presence for a reasonable amount results (1-30) is typically returned by the API in under a half of a second.”

Also, there are a few items in the presence API that will likely be improved by Microsoft in the future, “Currently the API is not subscription based so applications using it, like the Landis Contact Center for Microsoft Teams just need to pull the presence regularly so it reflect real time changes. Also, not all presence states, like ‘Out of Office’ are returned.”

You can watch the demonstration below.
