Key Features & Benefits
Enable users to instantly connect regardless of where they are located. Customizable presence indicators let other users know when you are busy, away or unavailable, allowing you to choose when to receive instant messages. Users can reach out to other available users for fast responses to time-sensitive questions without waiting for email replies. Easily turn a one-on-one IM into a group chat by inviting other users, share desktops to create "in-person" collaboration experiences, send documents through IM rather than writing separate emails and schedule conference calls with users, even outside your organization.
Reduce Communication Costs
Gain powerful communication tools without spending money on separate phone or voice over IP (VOIP) systems, instant messenger software or third-party conferencing solutions. Lync's integrated voice and video chat also helps keep travel costs down.
Unify Communications Systems
Lync 2010 brings all your communication tools together into a single, easy-to-use interface, joining voice and video calls with instant messaging, conference calls, group chats and presence indicators. The integration between Lync and Outlook makes it simple to move from one communication form to the other, sharing presence indicators, contacts, calendars and more between the programs. And since it's all part of a single integrated system, you can seamlessly shift between methods of communication, turning an IM conversation into a phone call or email with the click of a button.
Encourage Collaboration with Remote Teams
Today more than ever businesses need to quickly communicate remotely. Lync enables users to easily connect to others, regardless of location, from a multitude of devices (PC, mobile) in a variety of ways (video, IM, voice, etc).
