TELUS has teamed up with Microsoft and Avanade to offer Skype for Business an enterprise-grade unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solution that enables new ways for employees to connect with colleagues and customers, and helps Canadian businesses to better support a mobile workforce.

Skype for Business offers a full suite of communications and collaboration tools that includes voice and video calls, instant messaging, presence and online meetings - all available through a single interface on nearly any device, anytime, anywhere.

Skype for Business is the evolution of Microsoft Lync; it brings together the Skype interface with an expanded Lync feature set that offers seamless integration with commonly used Microsoft Office applications and delivers the performance, security, compliance and control required by organizations today.

David Kozicz, Vice President of Product Development & Product Marketing, TELUS Business Solutions
By implementing Skype for Business, organizations can transform how they work by boosting productivity, enhancing team collaboration and improving customer service, while dramatically reducing telephony and travel costs.

Janet Kennedy, President, Microsoft Canada
In a cloud-first, mobile-first world, Skype for Business is critical for enabling businesses to achieve more, as it extends communications beyond the walls of businesses to reach customers and partners, anytime, anywhere in a secure and compliant environment.
