The benefits of Skype for Business
What’s the difference between Skype for Business and Skype?
If you’re a regular user of the standard Skype, then Skype for Business will seem very familiar. The interface of Skype for Business is almost identical to Skype apart from the many additional features it offers.
The inclusive features within Skype for Business helps your business to run more efficiently eg. Instant messaging, viewing when someone is available, in a meeting, or presenting, providing industrial strength security for calls, or broadcasting a meeting internationally to a large online audience of up to 250 people including screen sharing.
Meetings with Skype for Business
It’s easy to set up a meeting using Skype for Business. They can be scheduled in Outlook which sends a personalised link to up to 250 recipients. And, unlike other providers, its very easy for attendees to then join the meeting on their chosen device with just one click.
Skype for Business also allows you to record meetings and download the movie file, screen share and annotate PowerPoint presentations for real time collaboration during meetings. You can also use whiteboards, polls and Q&A alongside instant messaging from attendees during the meeting itself.
