Why You Need Skype for Business for Your Business

September 29, 2016

Businesses across the globe – regardless of size – are challenged with cutting costs and improving efficiency. The goal today is to work smarter, not harder. To achieve that, businesses are turning to collaboration technologies.

Having tools like video conferencing, IM and phone systems have helped to cut costs associated with travel and other long distance calling fees. As technology advances, these solutions are being adopted more and more.

Now that Skype for Business has made its way on to the scene, most businesses have moved away from their old ways of conducting business with clients and partners and have taken on a whole new meaning for productivity and cost savings.

What so many like about Skype for Business is that it offers call clarity and is convenient. It already works with the products most businesses have in place and that kind of integration can go lengths to saving time and upping efficiency. Another key aspect is security. With enterprise-grade security, businesses can worry less about losing important data or having security holes.

Conferencing provider Revolabs will be taking part in an upcoming industry event and Alan MacLeod, Revolabs' vice president of product, will present during a session titled, “Can You Hear Me Now – In Every Room? How to Go Beyond Infrastructure to Build a Great Skype for Business User Experience,” which will offer advice on how to fix real-world implementation issues for meeting spaces and how factors such as room size and shape play an important factor.

“Skype for Business is redefining how customers and users are communicating, but there are a lot of variables and considerations beyond just buying hardware and software that go into creating an excellent user experience,” MacLeod said. “My goal is to arm communications decision makers at these events with measurable tools and best practices to create the most productive collaboration environment for any enterprise.”
