Skype for Business (Formerly known as Lync Online) provides an enterprise-ready unified communications platform which can connect people everywhere, via Windows 8 and other operating systems including those on mobile devices.
This version of Skype provides a consistent, single client experience for presence, instant messaging, voice, video and a great meeting experience. Skype for Business unifies all voice and video calls as well as Meetings, presence, and instant messaging (IM) in one easy-to-use package, making it simple to choose and switch between different forms of communication. Having a single UC client application instead of multiple applications simplifies deployment, adoption, and support.
With this new Office 365 tool, you can meet anywhere at any time, connect immediately with co-workers by seeing who is available and make voice and video calls. Skype’s integration with Office 365 allows documents and meetings to flow through all applications making working together easier than ever before.
