In 2010, Microsoft Lync, a new office communications service, was launched. With a vast array of modern online communication features, Microsoft Lync is being used to unite interactions of businesses around the world and also bring businesses forward into the cloud.

The Microsoft Lync system combines various security and support functions and some of the most advanced web conferencing tools to make a reliable and user friendly communications utility. Microsoft Lync is very versatile in enabling interactions with virtually anyone, anytime and anywhere, making mobile and global communication easier.  Users can connect with each other on any internet-enabled device anywhere in the world by simply clicking on the employee directory.

Microsoft Lync has made unified interaction for big corporations more convenient. Companies who have implemented Microsoft Lync can easily utilize virtual whiteboard sessions, video chat, voice chat, instant messaging, shared applications and desktops, and online meetings. These options are very useful in managing and communicating with remote employees or offices and Microsoft Lync makes it effortless.

Bob Muglia, Microsoft’s Servers and Tools president, explained, “Microsoft’s strategy is to deliver software, services, and tools that enable customers to realize the benefits of a cloud-based model with the reliability and security of on-premises software.”

Microsoft Lync is adhering to that strategy in helping advance businesses into cloud computing by providing a reliable and simple communication tool. Lync also gives corporations a tool that can better unify communications between offices and employees and create a more efficient and cooperative work environment.
