IT staff benefit from a single, consistent management infrastructure, new capabilities to increase availability, and interoperability with existing systems.


Get easy, anywhere access to a unified communications experience

Access presence, instant messaging, voice, and audio, video, and web conferencing from Skype for Business/Microsoft Lync 2013, no matter where you are or what device you’re using—a PC, a browser, or a mobile phone. One set of contacts across Skype or Lync and Microsoft Office applications, from Word to Excel to OneNote, makes connecting easy.
