Using Hosted Lync as a communications tool takes advantage of Voice over IP (VoIP) and directly provides savings on phone calls for businesses for outbound call savings and for calls to staff in multiple locations. Integrated audio, video, and Web conferencing helps reduce travel costs or the charges of any conferencing solutions you may use.
Hosted Lync delivers rich presence information for team members and helps employees find each other and choose the most effective way to communicate with them. Rather than e-mailing documents back and forth, workers can rely on real-time collaboration through enhanced conferencing with desktop, application, and virtual whiteboard sharing—or contact a collaborator from within Microsoft Office or other applications. The Hosted Lync 2010 client provides access to enterprise voice, enterprise messaging, and conferencing from one simplified interface.
Support the mobile workforce
Mobile workers get access to rich Unified Communications tools from practically anywhere with an Internet connection, no VPN needed. An updated Lync Mobile client makes joining and managing conferences, searching the Global Address List, and viewing presence information easy. Rich presence in Hosted Lync has been updated with mobile location information, making on-the-go workers easier to find and contact. A single user experience across PC, phone, mobile phone, and browser gives workers more ways to stay in touch.
Gain operational efficiencies
By integrating Unified Communications and rich presence into business workflows, latency and delays can be reduced or eliminated. For businesses with multiple offices, group chat can deliver efficient, topic-specific, multi-party discussions that persist over time.
