Microsoft Offers Lync to Connect Enterprise Communications

In addition to providing a single interface to manage instant messages, voice calls, video calls, meetings and shared whiteboard sessions, Lync integrates enterprise VoIP. Happy customers already include Boeing, Estée Lauder, France Telecom, Nikon and Orange. A free 180-day trial is available now.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like.
