Eclipse launches Lync 2013

Lync is a great tool for any business with colleagues looking to collaborate across locations or traditional team boundaries. With capabilities including messaging, presence, conferencing and desktop sharing, all wrapped up in a familiar Microsoft look and feel, it is no wonder Lync is a market leader.

However, Lync hasn’t always been easy or affordable for businesses and end users to adopt; and that is what makes Hosted Lync from Eclipse very different. Available on a per user per month basis, without the need for any changes to the on premises IT environment, businesses are rolling out Lync trials in days with full adoption in weeks – all backed up with the support of the Eclipse Cloud specialist team.

Lync can transform the way a business operates, enabling the whole organisation to connect easily and effortlessly, regardless of location. That is why Lync was chosen as the latest product to be integrated into Eclipse’s portfolio of cloud solutions and join Hosted Exchange, Backup and Managed Hosting, which all work together to provide a subscription based suite of productivity tools.

Pete Tomlinson, director of product, marketing and sales at Eclipse, is delighted with the latest addition to their portfolio, “Lync is too good to remain the preserve of corporate giants. Every business should be able to benefit from new ways of working and Lync does just that, especially when combined with Hosted Exchange. It’s is no surprise that the UK’s fastest growing businesses are those embracing the agility of a SaaS model”.

Pete also confirmed that Eclipse plans to extend its offering shortly to include the ability to make voice calls from within the Lync application, driving even more value and flexibility for their customers.
