LDAP server for easy access to contact data
MetaDirectory merges different databases into a single, consistent LDAP directory that can be used company-wide. This makes relevant data such as telephone numbers and other contact details available to all employees in the company. The intelligent preparation of the data enables easy searching and fast presentation of the results – even with large databases.

MetaDirectory – the original

MetaDirectory as a true multi-data tool offers unique advantages in combination with Micorsosft Teams: Bring your customer data from different data sources (such as ERP or CRM systems) directly into Microsoft Teams and use it there! Display external callers' phone numbers in Microsoft Teams, even if they are not stored in your local address book.
MetaDirectory turns your contact data into valuable information for your company.
Protecting your sensitive data: the new user management
In times of increasing data protection guidelines (keyword: General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR ), companies must regulate and manage access to personal data easily and securely for employees. MetaDirectory makes this possible thanks to its new user management.
Joachim Frenzel, MetaDirectory Product Manager: "Thanks to the integrated user management, data can be additionally secured and the 'Need-To-Know' principle of the leading application is maintained."
MetaDirectory forms the basis for the necessary interconnection of business and communication processes with the help of its diverse integration options.
The MetaDirectory web page provided by the web server can be directly integrated as an app in Microsoft Teams and used in the Teams client:
- Contact search
- Phone number search
- Select from search result
- Various further URL calls such as "mailto:"
Are you using Microsoft Teams for your external telephony? Here, too, estos offers a solution with MetaDirectory: The connection of the LDAP directory service to a Session Border Controller enables the caller's name and company to be displayed in the Teams call window, even if the caller is not stored in your local address book.
With the help of MetaDirectory, we integrate the business processes already automated in ERP, CRM and industry solutions with the communication processes. This means that information such as the name, customer number and last orders are already available when the call is received. In addition, employees can search for contact data in ProCall.
