Unified Communications: Your Business + Lync | Unify Communications

  1. 1. Your Business + Lync: A marriage made in heaven.
  2. 2. Remember the bad old days. 2 It wasn’t long ago. There are plenty who would prefer we whisper it quietly. But there used to be a time when unified communications promised a lot more than it delivered. No longer. Because with Microsoft Lync 2013: everything has changed. Lync is different. It gives you that one thing you really want: a consistent communication experience regardless of how you want to communicate. Through email, video or whatever media you choose. And it works easily on your PCs, Macs, phones, browsers. In fact, pretty much anyway you like, on anything you choose. NOW WE REALLY CAN SAY IT. This is a new era for enterprise communications. A huge opportunity for your business. And we believe it has the potential to change the way you work. . .
  3. 3. Try these SEVEN BIG reasons you’ll LOVE LYNC. 1. You can stay connected from virtually anywhere Get Lync, and suddenly your employees can communicate with colleagues and customers in real-time from virtually anywhere. Security is covered, and there’s no need for a VPN. You can use a range of devices including PCs, laptops, phones or tablets. There’s rich ‘presence’ information, so you know when colleagues are available and the best way to get in touch with them. And you can connect to anyone on Skype—putting your people straight in touch with hundreds of millions of people around the world. 2. Powerful collaboration is at your fingertips Use Lync to collaborate easily with colleagues, partners and customers. It’s easy to set up a sharing session in Word, PowerPoint or Excel. Lync also integrates easily with SharePoint workspaces. Bring disparate project teams together, speed up decision making and get approvals through faster. With Lync 2013, all your collaboration tools are together in one place. 3. This is the easy way to boost customer service and responsiveness With Lync, your people work quicker with their business apps and communication tools together in one place. Businesses soon operate at a faster pace with customers across a whole range of different time zones. Your people can take action more quickly and be able to provide feedback with minimum effort. And you can engage with customers in new ways, using video conferencing to create rich and highly interactive experiences. 4. It’s simple to control and use across multiple devices Your people use multiple mobile devices in their everyday lives – so why shouldn’t they use a similar range of devices at work? With Lync, your staff get a familiar Microsoft interface across a wide variety of devices. They can switch across smartphones, tablet, PCs, Macs and room systems with ease. And they don’t have to lose time figuring out how to use new software – this is all the Microsoft stuff they’re used to. 5. This can move at a pace to suit you Only Lync delivers an end-to-end unified communications solution. But the best part for many – or should we say at least for the people in IT – is that you’ll no longer have to maintain a separate telephony infrastructure. Plus, with Lync available on-premise, in the cloud or as a hybrid solution, you can start to evolve your IT at the pace you want. 3
  4. 4. 6. You can make the most of your existing investments Lync is different, but it’s also stunningly familiar. That’s because Lync is tightly integrated with your existing Microsoft software. So your IMs, video calls and other communications happen from within Outlook, SharePoint and your other Microsoft applications. You won’t lose time switching between apps and working with multiple interfaces. You don’t waste time training up on systems. And you don’t waste a penny of the systems you’ve already invested in. 7. You can reduce costs drastically Did we forget to mention it? The icing on the cake is that Lync will help you reduce your costs by converging your communications. You can avoid the expense of a traditional telephone network – a major saving when staff are dispersed. You can replace business travel with high quality personal video conferencing. You can also eliminate charges for third-party conferencing services. Eventually you’ll also save money by retiring the separate PBX system. That’s the really beauty of Lync:    It makes your business more productive It makes your teams more responsive And for a lot less than you’re spending now. What’s not to LOVE? 4
