Vodafone has integrated Microsoft Lync to its One Net business service. The new feature is now available to existing customers and will be available to new One Net customers in the coming weeks.
One Net, the cloud-based communications service, delivers fixed and mobile communications through a single platform, allowing them to work together to bring greater speed to business communication.
The addition of Microsoft Lync to One Net enables ‘click to call’ through the Lync application from any device - PC, mobile or tablet. Businesses can set up virtual meetings, share files and their desktop and speak to colleagues within Lync.
There is no longer the need to switch between a PC and phone when using Lync, as employees can make and receive phone calls directly from the application on their laptop and tablet using their existing fixed and mobile numbers. The new addition expands the benefits of One Net with one voicemail box and the ability to make and receive calls from either a mobile or landline; regardless of which number is used.
Phil Mottram, Vodafone’s enterprise director said: 'SMEs need to be able to respond quickly to customer requests wherever they are, or risk losing out to the competition. Vodafone is the only company that can provide a fully integrated suite of mobile and fixed communications services from the cloud on its own network.'
He added, 'With One Net and the new Lync collaboration we can offer UK businesses the complete communications package that they need to succeed today.'
