Lync for Less
Lync is changing the business communications
landscape. Around the world, organisations are
undertaking deployment of Lync features to
enhance existing communications systems.
Lync for Less
Users of Lync love the ease of use and the great instant
messaging (IM) and presence (P) that it provides, easy
collaboration with colleagues and customers.
However, there is a perception that Lync is free. Whilst it
does form a free part of many companies license agreements,
to use voice and collaboration features requires buying
“Enterprise” and “Plus” client access licenses (CALs) and
these cost around US$246 per user.
Lync for Less
Most users want the great IM & P that they use but want the
ability to “click to dial” with Office applications and have the
ability to make calls from there devices whilst away from the
office.
Lots of companies already have a robust communication
system and don’t want to spend US$246 per user to upgrade
to Lync, and incur other costs like handset replacement.
How can we achieve this??.......
UCA Lync Client Add-In
The UCA Lync Client for ShoreTel overcomes these problems.
Users can click to dial and their ShoreTel handset will go off
hook and dial automatically (CTI mode), or in SIP mode the
client has a built in soft phone so that users on the move or
using a Bluetooth headset can make calls.
The client does not need the additional CALs thus saving up
to US$246 per user, and it will use all the features of the
existing communication system.
