Microsoft Practice

Gold Communications

Microsoft aims to help customers realize their full potential by expanding the possibilities of computing. The Skype for Business (formerly Lync) platform is at the heart of many integrations, including video, Office 365, Exchange and SharePoint. As a designated Skype for Business Launch Partner for New Meetings and Voice Services in Office 365, SPS has a proven track record of providing an end-to-end Skype for Business solution, including new services like Skype Meeting Broadcast, PSTN Conferencing, Cloud PBX and PSTN Calling. SPS engages clients through the entire project cycle, from assessment and technology road-mapping to implementation and support.

SPS is a one-stop shop for voice, video, collaboration and contact center integration services. Unlike other Microsoft partners who focus on a single workload, SPS possesses competencies spanning the entire Microsoft productivity stack, which is deeply intertwined – leaving customers in need of a partner who understands all of the integration points and dependencies. SPS holds tremendous experience in legacy voice and PBX integrations. That background, in tandem with SPS’s expertise in the Microsoft productivity stack, results in an unbeatable combination of services for our clients.

Specialties

Companies everywhere are drawn to the advanced unified communication (UC) capabilities of Skype for Business (formerly Microsoft Lync). With features like presence, HD video, mobile connectivity and application integration with Microsoft and other platforms, Skype for Business provides capabilities to help accelerate any business. New Skype for Business services that SPS can support include Cloud PBX, PSTN Conferencing, PSTN Calling and Meeting Broadcast.

With Office 365, you get the latest Office applications, delivered as a cloud service, and much more. Office 365 includes all the familiar productivity applications that businesses use every day, plus Outlook, Skype for Business, oneNote, Publisher and more. And because Office 365 is provided as a cloud service, it’s always up to date with no need for version management or a customer software push. Office 365 brings enterprise-grade productivity and communication applications to organizations of all sizes, with business-leading features from online meetings to document sharing and business-class email.

Microsoft Azure provides an agile, open cloud platform that helps you grow your business with greater efficiency and be more responsive to change. With Azure, you can quickly get up and running, scale up or down as needed and avoid high capital expenditures by paying only for what you use. Azure also works seamlessly with other Microsoft software and services, such as Windows Server, SQL Server, Exchange and SharePoint – helping you back up your most important company information and keep it safe.

The System Center suite helps you realize the benefits of the Microsoft-driven data centers and cloud platforms by delivering unified management. You experience fast time-to-value with out-of-the-box monitoring, provisioning, configuration, automation, protection and self-service.

SharePoint is a secure collaboration platform used to store, organize, share, find and access information across your organization. SharePoint helps you engage with people, share ideas and reinvent the way you work together. It functions the same as Bing or Google – only for finding any information within your own company.

Microsoft Exchange is the industry-leading platform for email and calendaring. It also provides Unified Messaging voicemail abilities for any type of PBX. Exchange helps you solve archiving, compliance, regulatory and eDiscovery challenges. Data loss prevention capabilities prevent users from mistakenly sending sensitive information to unauthorized people. Integration with Outlook means you’ll enjoy a rich, familiar email experience with offline access.

Microsoft Surface Hub provides video conferencing and document-sharing capabilities in any space where people come together to get work done – from large conference rooms to informal huddle spaces and offices. The fully integrated design works beautifully in the modern workplace, boosting productivity by using the same user interface as Skype for Business. Microsoft Surface Hub is also designed to be easy to deploy and manage remotely. A choice of two screen sizes and flexible mounting configurations provide the flexibility to meet your business needs.
