The connected workforce in which most of us work in is being driven by real-time communications and collaboration solutions. Employees can now work from anywhere, on any device, anytime using hosted cloud services to access all the applications and resources they need. But in order to use these technologies, the right applications are needed, and according to SoftwareONE, the purchase of House of Lync was driven by a direct response to rising demand for Microsoft Skype (News - Alert) for Business services.

SoftwareONE provides software management and IT solutions with its PyraCloudintelligent software management platform and Software Portfolio Management (SPM) services. The company has formed partnerships with leading vendors, including Microsoft, Adobe, IBM, VMware, Oracle (News - Alert), Citrix, Symantec, McAfee and others to deliver comprehensive solutions in more than 80 countries around the world.

The purchase of House of Lync, a Microsoft (News - Alert) High Touch Partner that is part of the Skype Operations Framework, will give SoftwareONE's global enterprise customers a complete Skype for Business Unified Communications (News - Alert) solution.

Having the House of Lync platform is going to streamline Skype for Business migrations when it is combined with SoftwareONE’s SkypeSimple, an end-to-end professional services offering for on premises, hybrid and private or public cloud environments. Using the ProtoSkype proof of concept tool, organizations can now accelerate their adoption of Skype for Business.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to enhance our Microsoft Enterprise Voice offerings, providing new ways of working anywhere, any time, on any device...It reflects a larger trend as business leaders look to provide a communications platform for the connected workforce,” saidSean Nicholson, Global Director of Technology Services for SoftwareONE.
