It’s always good to see two big brands collaborating to make life easier for the rest of us. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it should be applauded. One such collaboration is between software giant Microsoft and mobile network operator Vodafone.
Vodafone have integrated Microsoft Lync Online Enterprise Voice into their OneNet platform to provide a range of benefits for users. It’s a great move that will offer tangible benefits to users of either solution.
Microsoft Lync Online Enterprise Voice is built into Office 365 and provides instant messaging, VoIP features and project collaboration tools. By using the expertise gained from buying Skype, Microsoft have been able to create a VoIP system within Lync that is actually pretty good.
Not only can it be used to call between users, it can also be turned into a fully-fledged business VoIP solution too. You can share desktops, instant message, share files and all sorts of other neat things within Lync too.
Vodafone OneNet is the network’s Unified Communications solution that provides a single number that can be used for landline and mobile calls. You can also use a VoIP phone with that number or utilise Lync. So wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’re always contactable.
OneNet also offers voicemail, video conferencing, call centre applications and even social media capability. All these services are combined into a flexible solution with only one monthly bill.
Combined, Vodafone OneNet and Microsoft Lync Online Enterprise Voice provide a productivity leviathan that few business could afford to ignore. You get the global flexibility of the Vodafone network, the simplicity of a single contract and all the collaborative and communications features of Microsoft Lync Online Enterprise Voice. All in one tailored package designed specifically to suit the way you work.
As collaborations go, the one between Vodafone OneNet and Microsoft Lync Online Enterprise Voice is a powerful one. Not only does Lync come bundled with most versions of Office 365, it requires no new hardware, no new large financial demands and no new staff training.
If you use either or both solutions already, it’s just a matter of configuration and implementation. Both things we can take care of for you. If you would like to know more about Microsoft Lync integration with Vodafone OneNet, contact us today. We’re here to help.
