BT helps Halvotec make Microsoft Skype for Business a fully-fledged unified communications client

Cross-company communication uses a single app

Advising companies on the optimal use of products like Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Dynamics NAV is one focus of activity of Halvotec GmbH. Additionally, the company provides customisation, implementation, training and after-sales support.

Because more and more customers want to use Microsoft Skype for Business, Halvotec decided to run an in-house implementation as a reference for its customers. Advice was taken from BT. Now, using AudioCodes One Box, Halvotec staff are able to communicate across company boundaries from a single app and make full use of Microsoft Skype for Business advantages.
