Improving Communications with Skype for Business
At the heart of every successful business is an effective communication infrastructure.
Skype for Business allows for better collaboration throughout an organisation, in one platform that everyone knows, for calling, conferencing, video and sharing. Working alongside the desktop version are mobile apps from Windows, iOS and Android, helping any organisation achieve complete mobility.
Skype for Business provides voice over IP (VoIP) calling over the network and to users inside the company, Skype for Business users in other companies and Skype users around the world. After consulting the availability of a colleague or customer, any user can schedule a meeting through Outlook or start one at any time. Direct links to calls can be hosted in an email, calendar or meeting reminder allowing for single touch join.
Meetings for up to 250 people can be hosted with users only required to have a phone and an internet connection, Bing Pulse provides real time polling and sentiment tracking options throughout every meeting. Skype for Business Room Systems extend the Skype Meetings experience to meeting rooms with audio, HD video and content sharing. Importantly even those not using Skype for Business can still join.
