Microsoft Skype for Business Online

Intuitive product that requires little training for basic functionality.

We are an Office 365 customer and recently deployed Skype for Business to all users. User adoption was much higher than we had expected and in the rare case of an O365 outage, Skype is one of the products that is hard to live without.

Easy implantation, no downtime.

It's worked great for us.

Implementation was a breeze, but ongoing support leaves something to be desired

The vendor that provided the implementation did an excellent job

Implementation can be easy, but start small and work your way up!!

Much lower maintenance option to start movement of organization to the Office 365 "cloud". Already had an existing base of Lync and Communicator users, so movement to the cloud was mych easier.

Lync Server

Implemenation was fairly straight fwd, with few issues.

Initially we had some struggles getting all our end users to be able to install it successfully (Win7 home to Win 10 Pro and everything in between caused issues). But we are now all Win 7 Pro and Win 10 Pro with moving to all Win Pro by end of fiscal year in June 2017. No issues currently. Very usefull for what features we use it for. Mostly for chat, voice chat and some video conferencing. Even some IT remote support with giving access to techs to have hands on access to staff machines to do basic support.

License hard to determin

Everything work as planned. Only difficulty is determining the correct licensing for the product. Needed help from consultants.

Excellent Upgrade, but check other systems Compatibility

The product is excellent and is very similar from a supportability standpoint to the previous versions. It was tricky to implement and ran into a few road blocks. The vendor found out late that the version of Exchange we were running was not supported. This forced us to perform an upgrade of our exchange environment prior to finishing the upgrade to Skype for Business. Once we found this issue we decided to confirm all systems that interface and check for functionality. We checked operating systems supportability as well as other platforms. We found a few issues, but those risks were manageable and unavoidable.

Good alternative to Webex and Goto Meeting

Again Issues with incorrect issues cost more time as expected. Good cost effective solution
