If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Skype for Business, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
My understanding is that Skype for Business will be retired in July of 2021, so I am in the process of migrating to Teams. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
I definitely recommend the product. If you are in a complex distributed environment, with offices with varying levels of connection and various different bandwidths of connections and latency, that it's worth spending the extra money to get someone who really knows their stuff with respect to unified communications to set up Skype For Business across their organization. Someone that understands the pitfalls, because how your infrastructure is built is key to whether you're going to get a decent and stable experience or not. I would rate it a nine out of ten. I would give it this rating purely because of the fact that when it gets installed across a complex environment, you really need someone who knows their stuff to install it. But once it's installed properly, it's absolutely fine. It does what it says on the tin.
Skype Business is the best program that performs this type of service, and it is a benchmark in the market. For communication needs among users who are in the habit of doing work on the road, it is necessary to have a good connection to the internet for the satisfactory functioning of mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
I do not have any specific advice, other than improvement in the app is required.
We really like the screen sharing tool. The user experience is smooth, and user-friendly.
If you have Office 365, you should give it a "go" and try it!
It is a really good tool, with almost of the the features on the level of expertise that we need. We would love to see upgrades with whiteboards, architecture diagrams, and such. Apart from that, it would be great to have a interlink or integration with companies that are not on Microsoft Skype.
