It’s Time to Double Down on Lync Conferencing and Enterprise Voice!

Written by Sonu Aggarwal, CEO, Unify Square

Yesterday marked a significant milestone of Microsoft’s journey into what they call universal communications. This is a very natural motion of connecting collaboration and communication, not just within the virtual walls of the business and their value chain but also with customers, clients and consumers. Lync and Skype hold strengths on both sides and Microsoft seems to be in a good position to take advantage of these strengths.

Four Areas of Focus to Ensure Your Microsoft Lync Success

Every Lync deployment goes through a typical lifecycle: IM and presence sneaks its way throughout the business and then conferencing brings about fast ROI, then Enterprise Voice goes into a pilot resulting in a staged rollout across the business. Sometimes this goes great and sometimes there are hiccups along the way. Here at Unify Square we want to help you minimize the hiccups with these four focus areas where you should bring in some extra attention to ensure your success. If you pay attention to all four of these areas, no matter where you are in the Lync lifecycle, you’ll greatly reduce the risk and increase the likelihood of rapid adoption and early achievement of positive returns!

Use your Presence Wisely

We were speaking with a friend from one of our fortune 500 clients the other day and she said, “You know what?  I just don’t like Lync.  It always tells me that my coworkers are there, but I’ll ping them, and I get no response.  So I spend the time to walk across the building to their desk to find out from their officemate that they’ve gone for the day.  It’s unreliable and I just don’t use it.”  This conversation reminded us that presence is a powerful tool— one that often gets misused.  The following blog article, Take Back Your Presence, was written for the Lync Team Blog by our own Cari Dick, Director UC Adoption Practice, discussing the fundamentals of presence and its importance in collaboration at work.  It is a great reminder that good presence manners never go out of style.
