Many companies are looking to replace their current phone system. Microsoft Skype for Business Server is the solution. By leveraging existing IT infrastructure (Network, Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange)to replace an aging PBX, Skype for Business incorporates new communications capabilities (Instant Messaging, Presence, and Web Conferencing with audio, video and screen sharing) and extends these capabilities to mobile workers via their mobile phones and laptops as well as allowing the inclusion of meeting participants across multiple locations.

“First there was Skype, a well-liked app for instant messaging, video chat, and voice calls. Then Microsoft bought the company in 2011, continuing to offer it as a consumer product along with Lync as a business application. But last year Microsoft announced it would drop Lync in favor of Skype for Business, which would combine features of both Lync and Skype.”

The deployment and licensing of Skype for Business Server can be complex, however it provides companies with increased productivity and significantly lower operational cost for the static and mobile workforce.
