integrating-your-hosted-voip-system-with-microsoft-ocsA hosted VoIP phone system offers many advantages and benefits vs. a traditional landline system, including dramatically lower total cost of ownership (TCO), advanced calling features, seamless scalability, total solution control and business continuity backed by multiple levels of redundancy.

However, another important benefit that is NOT available with traditional landline phone systems is full integration with Skype for Business.

Through this integration, businesses can empower their employees to efficiently and effectively collaborate and share information – regardless of where they’re located.

Key Features of Skype for Business Integration with VoIP:

Real-Time Availability

Employees can instantly view their colleague’s availability status in real-time (based on a combination of user preference, login/activity status, and calendar information) and connect with them via the most appropriate mode of communication. This function dramatically reduces or can even eliminates tedious, wasteful “voicemail tag” and back-and-forth emails.

Web Conferencing

Employees can experience a real-time web conference or meeting, which integrates data, content, applications, video, voice, media and text. It’s also possible to enhance any web conference with the Microsoft Round Table web conference camera, along with full duplex video and audio. This is particularly helpful and impressive when holding executive or Board Meetings or providing customer presentations to decision-makers.

Video Meeting

Employees can simply click the “Desktop Share” icon and collaborate with colleagues or customers via web cam. Video meetings can be also be recorded and turned into webinars or archived for future reference. 

Instant Messaging 

Employees can send and receive instant messages which can be automatically logged to create detailed call records. This function is particularly valuable for ensuring compliance or providing records to third parts per legislation (e.g. e-discovery).
