Skype For Business

Microsoft recently shared its vision and mission to reinvent productivity. We envision our technology serving people to get things done in a world where work and life are really “just life.” Connecting people across all of life’s moments – to talk, to share, to collaborate – is at the heart of making this vision real.

For the past 10 years, Microsoft has invested in the transformation of business, disrupting the status quo with Skype for Business, by simplifying and unifying all of the different tools people use to communicate for work. We made Skype for Business a core part of Office to make it easy for people to connect with others to get work done. Skype for Business means the freedom to work anywhere. It’s like tapping someone on the shoulder to say “let’s chat” no matter where you are in the world. Colleagues meet together and make decisions in an instant and IT Professionals rest easy knowing their end-users are supported by a secure platform that they manage and control.

Today, thousands of organizations, large and small, count on Skype for Business for voice, video and conferencing.

Skype for Business is built for teams and networks. You can simplify your infrastructure with one platform for calling, conferencing, video, and sharing while continuing to use the Microsoft applications you use every day. With the new Skype For Business live data monitoring and in-depth analysis tools, let you monitor your data with ease.


Office meetings and collaboration at its finest! Skype for Business’ integration with various Office 365 products such as One Note, PowerPoint, Outlook etc. makes online meetings and teamwork easy as you can now schedule meetings, present, store, sync, annotate and share files online easily and real time.

Everyone can participate
Collaboration tools are built right in
Everyone knows who’s speaking, who they are and what they do

Skype for Business provides a similar look and feel as Skype while offering a more simplified user interface compared to the Lync client. Icons, presence indicators, contact lists, buttons, and several quick-action tasks, such as adding another contact during a conversation, will feel similar to users familiar with the older clients. Call monitor keeps active calls visible.

Over the last decade, Lync has helped organizations realize dramatic improvements in end user productivity, more seamless connections with the people that matter most to their business, and significant cost savings.

Skype for Business will extend the value that organizations are able to experience:

Even faster end user adoption: over 350 million people use Skype in their personal lives.  Skype for Business delivers that familiar and loved experience in the workplace, which translates to faster adoption, less training, and fewer calls to your helpdesk, because people show up at work already familiar with how to use it.

A deeper ability to reach your customers, partners, suppliers, and the other people that matter most to your business.  Skype for Business gives you the ability to access the hundreds of millions of people in the Skype network.
