Skype Releases Small Business Solution
Posted on 10-Mar-2006 11:10. | Tags Filed under: News.



Skype has announced Skype for Business, a solution designed to help small businesses manage communications, improve productivity and reduce costs.

Skype for Business expands existing Skype small business offerings to include: Skype for Business Web site, a resource dedicated to business support; new Skype hardware from Plantronics; and new features in Skype for Business Control Panel (formerly named Skype Groups) to simplify management of grouped users and pre-paid services.

Skype for Business introduces a dedicated Web site aimed at simplifying global communications and group administration for companies with fewer than 10 employees, a market represented by more than 50 percent of businesses already using Skype.

Other useful features include integration with the Microsoft Outlook toolbar and new products optimized for small businesses are also available through Skype for Business.

The service allows administrators to centralize the management of company-wide paid services and usability tools. Skype for Business Control Panel is available in 18 major languages: Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and six currencies: Brazilian real, British pound, euro, Japanese yen, Polish zloty and U.S. dollar.

The Skype for Business Control Panel offers a new auto-management feature that enables group administrators to make large credit purchases to one account and simultaneously distribute Skype credits, topping-off all customer accounts. Skype credits can be used for Skype premium offerings including SkypeIn, SkypeOut, voicemail, personalization and third-party conference calling.

Some hardware companis joined the Skype for Business initiative. For example Plantronics announced its Internet-optimized Voyager 510 Bluetooth headset solution featuring a plug-and-play USB Bluetooth voice adapter.

Other products optimized for small businesses include the Vosky Exchange from Actiontec, which allows company PBX systems to connect with up to four Skype callers; Linksys Cordless Internet phone; Polycom Computer Calling Kit; and an USRobotics USB Internet Speakerphone is also on offer.
