How can Skype for Business benefit your Business?

If you haven’t already heard, ‘Skype for Business’ is the new name for ‘Lync’ – the Windows based app that helps businesses collaborate online.

This renamed and revamped unified communications platform offers businesses a host of easy-to-use features and facilities and is a must for resellers to add to their product portfolio.

But what are the key business benefits that resellers should highlight to potential customers? Let’s take a look…

  1. Collaborate professionally:

With an enhanced range of services including instant messaging, audio and video conferencing, online meetings, and real-time chat, the new and improved Skype for Business enables you to collaborate professionally. Whether you’re connecting with customers, partners, suppliers or colleagues, Skype for Business enables you to communicate quickly and easily, whenever you wish.

  1. Reduce cost & complexity:

There’s no doubt about it – collaborating online saves money. Why spend valuable time travelling to meetings when you can run your meetings from the comfort of your office. And with free calls made over the internet, you’ll benefit from reduced phone bills as well as reduced travel costs.

But Skype for Business offers more than just that. It also reduces complexity. Seamlessy integrated with Office 365, there’s no need for multiple systems and apps. Everything is accessed and managed from one place.

  1. Collaborate with anyone, anywhere, on any device:

The evolution of mobile devices has changed the communications world forever. It’s easier than ever to stay connected even when you’re out on the road. Skype for Business adds to the ‘easiness’ of running your business by enabling you to collaborate with anyone, anywhere, on any device.

As with Office 365, Skype for Business can be installed on laptops, tablets and Smartphones so you can attend meetings no matter where you are. In addition, contact names and details are synchronised across your devices so you always have the latest information to hand.
