It’s finally here – Skype4B MAC! 

Skype for BusinessSkype for Business is the fastest growing unified communications tool on the planet. 

According to Microsoft, over 100 million people now use Microsoft Lync to communicate for work, with 79% of USA enterprises currently using or planning to deploy Lync for telephony.  There are a lot of us out there that have been waiting.  

With Lync 2011, MAC users have shared the same main functionally as their colleagues on the Skype for Business client… however, it lacked the robust nature of the PC version. Now that has all changed.  Microsoft has released Skype4B MAC client and it is really cool!

My 3 WOW moments
