Broadview Announces Skype for Business Integration
Broadview is proud to announce our award-winning OfficeSuite® Phone system now seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Skype® for Business an industry-leading collaboration platform.
The new integration will enable Skype® for Business and Microsoft Lync® 2013 customers to seamlessly integrate Microsoft’s desktop unified collaboration software with an advanced, cloud-based phone system, without the need to purchase new phones, servers or licensing. Users will gain the full functionality of an enterprise-grade phone system, including one-click dialing from their business phone number from any location, call routing, auto attendants, call groups and advanced mobile features for no capital expense.
“Software applications, especially unified communications (UC) solutions, need to adapt to the modern user, matching both their preferences in technology and digital lifestyle,” said Steven Farkouh, Broadview’s Executive Vice President. “We saw an opportunity to enrich the Skype for Business experience with a hosted phone system that consumers would actually want to use”.
By leveraging the Microsoft Skype for Business software development kit, we seamlessly connected our OfficeSuite® Phone service with the Skype for Business client, so users can heighten their UC experience with a true 100 percent cloud-based phone system and benefit from increased usability, productivity, cost-savings and business continuity.
Users of Microsoft’s Office 365 subscription bundle of Office software applications and other services will also benefit from Broadview’s new integration, which will allow Office 365 customers to utilize its enterprise-grade phone system to make cloud-based business calls.
This new integration is just another example of Broadview’s commitment to delivering the latest technologies and enabling customers to access our service through the applications they're already using.
