Professional collaboration and meetings - all integrated with Office
You get everything you need for conversations in one app—IM, audio and video calls, online meetings and sharing. And because Skype for Business and Office work together, it’s simple to collaborate right from your Office apps. You’ll see the contact card of everyone working in the same app as you so you can quickly send them an IM or email, or start a call. You can also schedule meetings and see IM history in Outlook, and start meetings from apps like Word and PowerPoint to present whatever you’re working on.
Connect with anyone, anywhere, on your favourite device
Reach out to anyone in your company, or to the hundreds of millions of people on Skype, on your favorite device or web browser. Even if they’re not on Skype for Business, up to 250 people can join meetings—all they need is a landline phone or Internet connection.
Help keep info safe and manage accounts easily
All communications are protected by strong authentication and encryption. You control employee accounts, so you can add or remove subscriptions and assign features based on people’s collaboration needs. If you’re already on the Microsoft platform, the account info stored for each person in your organization will be immediately recognized across Skype for Business.
Reduce cost and complexity with one solution
Skype for Business will work with most communications technology, so you can still make and receive calls on PBX phones and join meetings with video teleconferencing systems. You’ll also reduce the cost of supporting multiple services by upgrading to one solution that includes everything—voice, video, and online meetings. And you can continue using the on-premises equipment you already have as you gradually move to the cloud.
