When Deploying the SimplyVideo CVI service for Microsoft Teams there is a level of work required by you as the customer and us as a company. The guide below is an easy reference for you, but our team will be working through this with you. In most cases you will have a specific named technician working with you, this will be laid out in your statement of works (SOW).
