Microsoft Lync 2010 is a Unified Communications (UC) enterprise software solution suite that has proved popular in the wake of the global recession as businesses consistently seek to reduce capital and operational expenditure, while still retaining their competitive edge. UC combines instant messaging, audio, video conferencing, web conferencing, enhanced presence, voicemail, email, telephony etc. into one product that offers an integrated user experience.
“As businesses continue to look at ways of cutting their costs, UC offers a tried and tested model of ensuring that staff output is optimised at the lowest possible costs. UC takes productivity beyond the four walls of the office and allows organisations and their employees to be productive for longer,” Agbaje concluded.
Microsoft had in a statement commended Dimension Data for professional and expertise dominance as testified to by clients in the Middle East and Africa region.
