Skype for Business

Skype for Business is how the world will stay connected in a BYOD, post-PC world.

Skype for BusinessSkype for Business has the power to bring people together, and can play a bigger role in helping organizations improve communications to all stakeholders. Skype for Business combines voice, instant messaging, audio, video, and web conferencing into a richer, more simplified solution for organizations looking to transform their business communications into more collaborative and engaging interactions. Companies that implement Skype for Business technology and integrate it with their current applications have the power to enhance professional communications and are better positioned to handle this new era of conducting business.

The consumerization of IT and the advent of employees’ bringing their own devices (BYOD) to work are rapidly changing the way enterprise organizations conduct business both internally and with customers and channel partners. In addition, organizations are experiencing a rise in telecommuting and disparate workforces, as a result. When combined, these forces make enterprise communications increasingly difficult, and at a time when consistent and open communication is critical to business success.

Why Skype for Business

Meeting the Challenges of Communications in the Modern World

Throughout the past several years, enterprise communications have changed in three major ways: speed, modality, and location. We expect and need communication to be instant these days. We want several different modalities (voice, video, e-mail, messaging) to get a hold of someone. And physical location has become irrelevant, thanks to the Internet. The challenge this brings to enterprises is to make sure there is still good communication. More, faster, and everywhere doesn’t necessarily make the communication better.

Skype for Business is the only application that brings all communications together in a single, simple way for users. With other solutions you find that you need a new username/password and a different application for everything: phone, instant messaging, audio conferencing, web conferencing are all separate silos.

Skype & Facebook have made voice, video, and messaging commonplace for people at home. Now people want the same types of tools when they come to work. Five years ago you couldn’t get a lawyer or nurse to make a phone call from their PC. Now they are asking to do video chats with their mobile phones because the technology is pervasive and they already know the huge benefit of face-to-face communications provides at home – now they want it at work. Skype for Business is the modern workplace communication hub that does this for organizations.
