HOW DOES IT WORK?

Microsoft Skype for Business is available through on-premise servers or an Office 365 SaaS model. Each version is accessed the same way and with tight integration into Microsoft Outlook, users can easily organise meetings through their computers and mobile devices.

The online model that comes separate or as part of a Microsoft Office 365 subscription gives you the option the be billed monthly or annually based on your presence. This makes proof of concepts easy to provision and can be done at great speed.

HOW IS IT USED? WHO IS IT USED FOR?

If you have ever used Skype before and have familiarity with the office suite then you will easily pickup Skype for Business as it has that familiar feel to it. Skype is available through the following methods

  • Mobile Phone App
  • Desktop App
  • Web Browser

Skype for Business can be used for its basic chat functionality within the organisation or host large conference calls between overseas users that may be internal or external to the organisation.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Skype for Business provides the familiarity for users so it makes its adoption into the company extremely easily as training becomes minimal when compared alternative solutions in the market. Along with that, should you desire to make use of the online SFB platform then there is no requirement for expensive, on premise hardware as everything is managed and maintained by Microsoft.

There are also many existing phone systems that can tie in to Microsoft Skype for Business which makes your transition to this service much easier. This flexibility will allow you to completely move 400 users to SFB overnight or move individual departments and office to SFB as and when you require.
