BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
SoundConnect, an industry leading unified communication and collaboration provider, offers Office 365 end users the key to turning this already powerful software into a complete phone system by adding voice enablement and hybrid audio conferencing.
Microsoft Office 365 (O365) includes Lync Online, a communication tool that includes presence, instant messaging and Lync to Lync calls. With hosted voice, O365 becomes a comprehensive unified communications solution. Adding the voice component to Office 365 enables businesses to leverage their O365 purchase and obtain a phone system that is fully integrated into their desktop, including Exchange for email and calendaring, and SharePoint for collective document management. Organizations are able to replace an outdated or outgrown legacy phone system with a complete hosted telephone system for a truly integrated communication solution with little to no CapEx investment.
Lync hosted voice has all of the features that a traditional telephone system provides for day-to-day operations, including receptionist switchboard features, call routing to “hunt groups” and full interactive voice response capabilities. Voice-enabled Lync can be configured to mirror the functionality of a legacy phone system, even to the point of feeding an office-wide intercom system to announce calls on hold.
In addition, SoundConnect Hybrid Audio conferencing for Lync Online provides users with Microsoft Office 365 an integrated solution that brings superior audio quality to every Lync Online meeting. With capacity for up to 300 VoIP and PSTN participants and the best audio quality available in web conferencing, SoundConnect Hybrid Audio for Lync Online makes every Lync Online meeting more productive and efficient.

That coupled with SoundConnect’s ability to integrate our traditional audio conferencing into a customer’s Lync Online account’s provides a full collaboration solution.”
