Overall Satisfaction with Skype for Business

I work mainly from home or mobile throughout the UK. I had a problem with 'just a quick question' from clients and buyers at strange times of the day. Quick questions never turn out to be so, especially when they are immediately followed by another 'quick question' from another client.
The problem I had was that mobile numbers although convenient don't look professional on their own and some forms I filled in would not accept a mobile number and wanted a landline.
Skype addressed these problems, one being a landline registered to a Nottingham area code and the other being the ease to take messages while I'm on the road and call from my 'mobile landline' number wherever I may be in the world.
  • Manage separate employees account numbers
  • Using Skype answerphone to never miss a call.
  • Take my 'mobile landline' number with me wherever I go.
  • Easily budget your monthly costs
  • Dashboards are a little clunky, sometimes hard to find where you need to be
  • Doesn't always warn you when your Skype in number is about to expire
  • Very easy to track spending on different employee accounts
  • Very easy budget control
  • Cheap international calls
  • Skype to skype zero cost calls
Takes messages for me while I'm out on the road, is like a mobile but with a landline number, my number is registered to a major city. Easy to budget, not so good in poor internet areas. Uses a lot of processor memory on my PC. Good to budget on calls per month
