Office 365 enterprise customers will be able to leverage Skype for Business for all written, video, and audio conversations. As more and more customers are on the move, staying adept with mobile technology is a necessity to stay competitive. Skype for Business is rolling out three new voice and meeting capabilities designed to increase productivity giving enterprises the ability to reach, engage, and monetize customers in the mobile space.
Cloud PBX with PSTN Calling, allows you to make and receive traditional phone calls in Skype for Business will be available in to U.S. Office 365 customers. The Cloud PBX capabilities will include traditional calling features such as answer, hold, transfer, and the ability to leverage existing current PSTN contracts, carrier circuits, and numbers to make and receive phone calls. All possible thanks to the enterprise voice technology available in Lync Server and Skype for Business Server. Currently in preview, the feature will launch worldwide this fall with options to use existing phone lines.
PSTN Conferencing is meant as an offline alternative, allowing online meetings to be conducted with people in places with no Internet access. Join a Skype for Business meeting in Office 365 by dialing in and adding someone by dialing out to a mobile device or land line.
Skype Meeting Broadcast allows you to broadcast a Skype for Business meeting for up to 10,000 people. Attendees are able to join via mobile or desktop device and participate in real-time polling and chat via Bing Pulse and Yammer.
Time to say goodbye to separate meeting systems and PBX systems...
