Overall Satisfaction with Skype for Business (formerly Lync)

Skype for Business is an excellent tool that we use to communicate with customers, suppliers and other branches of the company, through this application we can organize meetings and train staff through videoconferences for the development and training of employees.
  • Skype for Business modernizes and simplifies telephony in your business.
  • Skype for Business offers a solution for each type of meeting. Your business can host all kinds of meetings from relaxed meetings, highly interactive collaborative sessions to more formal meetings with thousands of attendees.
  • All communications through Skype for Business, especially mobile, are secure. Skype for Business has the advantage of offering a variety of technologies and services to keep the owner's data secure.
  • With Skype for Business, the basic voice concepts are all those that respond, forward, redirect, transfer, and put on hold.
  • Enterprise Voice users can call co-workers in their VoIP or organizational PBX network, and they can also call any phone number even outside their organization.
  • Before joining a video call, make sure your camera is ready. You will see how you will look, the lighting, and the environment before going live.
  • Although it can also be used from the web, the most effective is that you install Skype on your computer or mobile (and your client as well). This is usually problematic for people who are not used to using technology.
  • Use the Microsoft system completely free of charge for a trial version so companies can validate if this application meets the expectations of the company.
  • Have a fully customized videoconference room with the logo and corporate colors of the company, with the Skype for Business account.
  • This multiplatform software has improved the interaction with the suppliers and customers of the company.
  • The software is highly secure and encrypts end-to-end communication by protecting the company's confidential data against cyber attacks, generating confidence in the company in each use.
  • This software has improved the communication channels with the other branches of the company, it has allowed us to carry out online training and train the staff.
  • The investment made in the purchase of this software has given its rewards an incalculable value, since it has allowed to improve communication, training and project management of the company with various clients.
We select Skype for Business over Google Talk because in terms of image and sound quality Google Talk is not up to Skype, it must improve its transmission platform to compete with Skype.
Skype for Business is appropriate for the company because it offers a solution for each type of meeting, ideal for highly interactive collaboration sessions to more formal meetings with many attendees.
