Microsoft® Lync® is an enterprise-ready unified communications platform. With Lync, users can keep track of their contacts’ availability; send an IM; start or join an audio, video, or web conference; or make a phone call—all through a consistent, familiar interface. Lync is built to fully integrate with Microsoft Office. The Microsoft Lync 2010 desktop client is available for Windows and for Mac and mobile versions are available for Windows Phone, iPhone/iPad, and Android devices.
IM and Presence
Microsoft Lync 2010 gives users real-time presence information—including photos, availability, and location—and enhanced instant messaging (IM) to help them connect more efficiently and effectively.
Lync makes it easy for users to create, moderate, and join pre-planned and on-the-fly audio, video, and web meetings with people inside and outside the organization.
Lync combines the telephony features of a traditional IP PBX with IM and conferencing to improve communication and lower costs. Lync Server 2010 must be running on-premises to use Enterprise voice.
Lync makes communicating easier and more engaging by delivering a consistent experience across computers, browsers, telephones, and mobile phones.
