On 11 November 2014, Microsoft announced that Skype for Business would replace Lync in 2015. The latest version of the communication software combines features of Lync and of the consumer software Skype. There are two user interfaces and organizations can switch their users from the default Skype for Business interface to the Skype for Business (Lync) interface.
Improved Conference Calls
Creating a “Lync Meeting” is a breeze. Microsoft Lync’s integration with Exchange allows users to create meetings in an Outlook calendar within seconds. After you create the meeting, it sets up a virtual conference line, the appointment is blocked out on your calendar, and the invites have been sent to the other users. When the meeting is about to begin, users just click the join button and are ready to go. Once they joined, they can use webcams, share PowerPoint presentations, share their desktop, and a variety of other features. If you’re on the road while you need to join a meeting, use the smartphone app to directly link to a meeting.
With these benefits, it’s apparent why 70 percent of Fortune 500 companies are using Lync. While it may not be the right choice to cover every facet of your unified communications needs, Lync will provide benefits for businesses of any size.
