We loved the ability to IM, the Outlook calendar integration, the ability to meet on demand or schedule future meetings. The emoticons were hit for our emoji lovers. We used it across the entire company, in which we had both remote employees and those working at headquarters. It made conversations easier.,Real-time collaboration Notifications Meetings,Security Modernization Sleek UI,7,Decrease in travel costs. Increase in productivity. Decrease in miscommunications.

People use it to communicate as well as share screens. Also it is very very convenient to use Skype for video calls. Also the integration of Skype with Lync makes it all the more valuable for my organization. Also it helps us to get our technical issues sorted by using screen share and the ability to transfer control helps a lot. You can transfer control to the technician and he can do the fix himself so you don't have to scratch your head worrying about where to get the job done.,Video calls: The best application for video calls. It automatically adapts to your connection speed and the video call is adjusted accordingly. Also, the clarity of audio and video is great. Communication: It has a great interface for texting. The use of emoticons makes it meaningful to send across your message more effectively. Screenshare and transfer control: You can share your screen and also transfer control to someone who is trying to help you from another system and it is very very convenient. Form groups: You can organize your contacts by forming groups.,Calls drops: I think this is inherent in any calling software and there is always room for improvement in this area Interface: Probably Skype can make the user interface more friendly for new users. Pricing plans for premium users can be made more affordable for individual licenses.,9,It has considerably reduced the capital expenditure required to maintain a huge number of computers as we hire fewer technicians to serve more needs. It is reasonably cheap for a large organization and will hardly reflect in your expenses yet the effects can optimize the operations in a great way.,Lync and WebEx Meetings,WebEx Meetings,,,Screen share Transfer control Video calls,Transfer control for even helping someone with PowerPoint and giving training,May be if it can be integrated with Microsoft Outlook that would be very helpful.,10,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Analyst Reports,I think I would still go for Skype because it has met our expectations in every way.,Yes,10,No,My Skype was crashing everytime I tried to transfer the file.
