Overall Satisfaction with Skype for Business

Skype for Business, is being used by the general operations management to strengthen communications with its workers and other professionals involved in the production chain. One of the most common problems has been to achieve an assertive communication with each of the people involved in the production process, considering that it is very complex to achieve communication immediately. With the application of the SKYPE for Business program, communication with staff has been continuously improved, significantly reducing work execution times and, consequently, we are more efficient. In the same way, logistical expenses have been significantly reduced because, thanks to the Skype tools, we no longer need to mobilize to other spaces for the organization of work meetings.

  • Allows sharing the computer screen for excellent communication.
  • It is a tool that adapts to the current business dynamics that requires it to be efficient in communication through rapid and assertive communication with clients or interested parties.
  • Video calls for the organization of work meetings have become a common experience in smart organizations because they understand that in order to adapt to a constantly changing world they must use more effective work tools.
  • You can make individual and group video calls, send images, emoticons, text messages, voice messages, share files, share the screen in two or group with other communication tools.
  • It requires an excellent connection to the Internet because not all the territory of my country has an adequate Internet connection for the efficient operation of Skype. Being a limitation for the communication by video call with the personnel that is in communities of difficult access.
  • They must improve the coincidence of the audio of the call with the video view, considering that they do not coincide in time, a situation that affects the work.
  • They should improve the process to make a call because it is confusing.
  • The use of Skype has been a tool that has contributed to improve the indices of profitability of the company, considering that it significantly reduced the expenses in logistics and organization of events.
  • The organization has significantly reduced the time of completion of tasks, action that has improved the utility indexes.
  • The departure of personnel was reduced, considering that the organization is more efficient, because it improved the communication with the companies.
Select Skype for business because it is a program that offers better video call tools because it contains work options that allow a clearer image of the video, more coincidence between audio and video. Skype for business offers a more innovative and creative interface tailored to the current business demands. It has more striking, technical and professional tools, which are essential for the organization of high-level management meetings.
It is a tool that adapts very well to meetings of a high professional level, being very effective for the transmission of information and the reduction of logistics expenses and the growth of the personnel. Skype adapts well as a tool of communication at a distance with the work teams, since it allows the reduction of the operative expenses and the execution times of the strategic instructions of the organization, guaranteeing the adequate use of the available time for the production of the company.

It does not adapt very well for the organization of meetings at distances that merit communication with personnel located in communities of difficult access, which do not have an excellent connection to the internet, therefore the tool is more advisable for office activities but not field.
