Lync is Microsoft’s unified communication platform that helps you to establish virtual connection between you and people you work with. The latest release delivers a fresh, intuitive user experience that is directly accessible from Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft SharePoint.
Microsoft Lync has generated a lot of interest for many reasons in the field of unified communication. As a method of communication, we now use email, IM conference calling, telephones, etc that can do this very well – but separately and independently. It becomes expensive to maintain them and their details. Microsoft Lync reduces this complexity by putting people at the center of communication experience. The goal of Lync is to integrate all the ways people used to contact each other at a single environment.
