Microsoft Lync enables this communication with a streamlined system, so that everything is at your fingertips, in one place. Microsoft Lync can support you in your business, in staying in contact with colleagues, suppliers, clients and partners.

Stay in touch from a distance

As long as they have a network connection, people can use Microsoft Lync to send messages and conduct voice and video calls.

A world of devices

Microsoft Lync aims for consistency of use between multiple devices and operating systems, including Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. This is essential with so many people using different systems and devices, while wanting to see and share the same information.

Skype connectivity
