Overall Satisfaction with Skype for Business (formerly Lync)
Skype for Business is the most used tool in communication at my company. We used it for instant messages and calls, but now we are using it more frequently in our meetings that were previously held in person. Currently, we have most people working from home and this requires a higher level of structure to have stable communications, allowing the work to continue to happen in the right way. As I work with civil engineering within a chemical industry, there are many decisions that must be made both technical and safety, which require that many people are involved in monitoring the works.
- Video and voice connections
- Mobile application
- Outlook integration
- Call redirection to cell phones
- The synchronization of the conversation history on mobile and computer
Among all the ones I used, the ones with the best experience were: Google Meet, Zoom, Whereby, Messenger. These are great programs but in an informal context. I believe that for companies, Skype is differentiated precisely because it is a specific application for both security and settings, giving you a better experience on all platforms.
As every team has strengths and weaknesses, I believe that every team can improve on points such as speed, practicality, communication. I haven't had many occurrences for which I needed Skype support, but the ones I did have were well attended to and got resolved.

Skype is highly recommended for companies that want to provide good communication to their employees in a quick and practical way. It is essential for those looking to maintain mobile communication when the same experience is achieved on both computers. It may not be appropriate for companies that do not want to invest (spend) money and prefer something for free. For this, there are several applications on the market, but they may not offer the same integration with computer/cell phone/Outlook.
