Skype for Business

Get connected with the enterprise communications platform that integrates seamlessly with your Office applications

Intelligent communications

Skype for Business revolutionises the concept of unified communications by integrating real-time conferencing with collaborative Office 365 applications. Voice and video calling, conferencing, instant messaging and screen sharing all combine with Office 365 Active Directory to give the user access to network resources. You can look up calendars and address books, share content in calls or even initiate conversations within Word or PowerPoint. Available on premise as Skype for Business Server or in cloud as Skype for Business-as-a-Service/Skype for Business Online, Skype for Business provides the business with a true Unified Communication and Collaboration (UCC) solution.

• Multi-user conference calls: conference calls for up to 250 participants and video calls for up to ten users can be conducted allowing you to engage in large scale meetings
• Skype Meeting Broadcasts: meetings that support HD video, desktop screen sharing and presentations which can be broadcast over the Internet for up to 10,000 people making it possible to host webinars or make company announcements while in-app access can provide innovative analysis in the form of real-time polling and sentiment tracking
• Surface Hub: use whiteboarding and conferencing tools such as the Microsoft Surface Hub to connect and share ideas in huddles with colleagues and customers
