HOW DOES ASKCODY INTEGRATE WITH MICROSOFT TEAMS?
Reduce your IT tech stack. AskCody is not another tool in the tech stack, but an integrated part of your Microsoft Suite. There are no risks of synchronization errors and breakdown. Just a true and clean integration to scale your IT infrastructure.
Stick to the familiar interface of Outlook. You can still use the same Teams app, and your booking experience is still in Outlook. You don’t need to change behavior or have a lot of different Platforms open. Leverage your existing Microsoft Suite with AskCody providing extra layer of value.
No Extra Fees
No Extra Fees
AskCody does not charge an extra fee to create a connection to Teams, because it already exists without creating a unique app. Most other meeting management systems are not built into Exchange, which means they create an app to integrate their own platform to Teams. This app usually has an extra fee associated.
WHY ASKCODY INTERACTS NATIVELY WITH TEAMS?
By its very core AskCody is native to Microsoft being built on Exchange Web Services (EWS). Because the AskCody Platform is built on a Microsoft foundation it natively interacts with: Exchange, Teams, Outlook, and Power-Bi.
