Skype for Business makes doing business much simpler!

Pros

I like that the product makes it so easy to communicate with both colleagues inside and outside of my company. It's much easier than email when you need a response immediately, and you can tell when your contacts are available. Being able to conduct meetings and share screens is just a bonus.

Cons

The software can sometimes be a little "glitchy". It works well most of the time though. Occasionally it has issues connecting, or it tells me that some of my contacts have been offline for 100+ days.

Pros

Skype for Business looks attractive and intuitive at first glance. It is more professional looking than the traditional skype package.

Cons

I have used this product on three different devices and on three different networks, and each time it has failed. I needed to record the screen, and it stated that it was actively recording, but no recording was saved. Additionally, the interface is incredibly difficult to navigate and find commonly used items such as a sharing link for invitees.

I like the Skype application since its inception, I like its evolution and its simplicity to make calls. I hope they keep improving.

Pros

Skype for Business is excellent for video calls in groups, I have participated in virtual meetings with approximately 70 people and the quality of audio and video is very good. The integration with the office package is for me, its main advantage.

Cons

Some collaborators of the company have indicated to us that the mobile application presents some errors and the same quality in the calls is not appreciated. Some users also had to delete the application because it slowed down their smartphones.

Pros

I mostly used Skype for Business for quick IMs with people in the office, but like the option of using video when needed and have even used it for interviews.

Cons

No real issues: as long as your connection is good, the quality is great. Occassionally getting someone's Skype ID is a hassle (versus IMing through email) but that's the only hiccup.

Pros

Great tool to keep in communication with your team and peers - particularily when you work in different plants. I really like the integration of the phone service so you don't have to look up numbers of your colleagues. For those on the go - this is a great tool.

Cons

When you share your screen for conference calls - the data you are sharing can get small for the users to see clearly. It would be nice to be able to eliminate all borders to show the data as large as possible.

There is a better flow of communication within my organization thanks to Skype for Business.

Pros

I particularly like the running in the background option for Skype for business. I don't have to open it every time to check for any new messages and the notification bar on Windows also shows any incoming messages.
The UI for Skype for Business is easy to use and the integration with Office is what really makes it one of the best in the business. While I'm working on a Word document, I can instantly chat with any other people working on the same document through Skype for Business. Its really an efficient time saving tool

Cons

Their pricing plans for international calling are not the best. Since we do overseas calls to clients around 20-30 times per week, we need a good service that enables us to call Landline and phone at a decent corporate pricing model.

Skype removes the need for our customers to visit the office physically for very serious complaints,as we can easily organize a Skype call conference with them.Primary benefit I have derived from Skype is improved productivity and easy communication with my project team members on weekends,when I work from home.

Pros

I am allowed to have upto two hundred and fifty people connect to my video conference.There is the ability to send messages and exchange files while my conference call is ongoing.Multiple Skype access options for me from my phone,tablet and personal computer.I find it user friendly too.
Plus I can make international calls to landlines and mobile phone numbers for very fair rates.

Cons

With a string WiFi connection,Skype can easily become ones worst nightmare.

Overll I love this tool and used it for ages, but the new update is simply annoying...

Pros

I have been using Skype for over 10 years now and I always enjoyed it - connectivity is awesome, strong internet connection, the sound is generally very good (for both phone calls and the standard Skype functions).

Cons

Well, honestly I sm so dissapointed with the nw update...I hate the new UI! Skype was known for simplicity and neat design but now I cannot find phone calls and I use them almost every week! How this is possible that the UI in the new update is so confusing that I cannot get used to it after months of using it? Guys, please fix it, you did yourself disservice with the newest update :/

I have read a lot about the benefits of Skype Business but after using this application discovered more advantages than I have read it is really advantages and countless and some of the disadvantages that exist, it is very few for the applications laid out and the same work done from the personal opinion that there is no competitor to Skype Business

Pros

If you are running a large, medium or even small organization, it is better and easier to use a video chat or voice chat service. You should use Skype for Business, which is the best for businesses and companies.

This application is used in the work of video or audio meetings between two individuals or a group of employees in the company and you can use it to communicate with your company employees in its branches in different countries of the world.

The manager of the organization can make a meeting in the same place between more than one official and in the meeting room equipped with a computer of large size such as Surface Hub dedicated to display business data and statistics to help them in their discussion and more accurate views as well as the use of Skype for Business and to communicate with heads Affiliates or corporate officers in other countries and all this through Skype Business for time and travel
Best for group video calls

Two of the best quality Skype video calls are constantly being developed by the company
The application interface allows you to make comfortable conversations that you can easily manage, control and exchange views with more than one party at the same time
Exchange of files and data is very easy between employees and you can send one file to all participants in the conversation and the participation of digital data and provide the outcome of the meeting at the same time can be shared in a single conversation up to 250 people
Skype Business

Cons

As far as my fear of the data with the application, but it is much better than applications presented by the blog but is the best but there are some negatives that appeared when I use it when opening more than one conversation at one time the application may hang and close on its own this is a big problem, but appeared once Only one or two times and it requires a strong Internet connection when the work of a visual conversation, but when a voice call Fi Internet speed enough for the purpose only These are all the disadvantages of the application

Pros

for quick meetings in which we can get key points to the point-people on the team, Skype for Business is at the top of our list. great sound quality and great image quality.

Cons

being on a conference call for upwards of an hour whether for video or audio can lessen the quality of the call. the frequency of dropped calls and choppy video and audio spikes the longer the calls are, too.

We establish meetings and video conferences with presentations from time to time to establish organization and planning, in this way we use the software from its main task which is to create distance meetings among colleagues who participate in each project.

Pros

I find it useful that you can use it online and also perform the download on the computer, to use it between different devices is efficient, the most interesting is the ease of scheduling meetings where I only have to select the meeting topic, time and in case of being required by a moderator who can control the progress of the meeting or video conference.

Cons

The topic of contacts and creating groups seems to me that it is not resolved in the most effective way, it is a topic that could establish a better way to add those interested in joining the meetings, send the link to access the connection of the Meeting is something that often confuses some users and is an element to improve.

If I talk about my overall experience, I would say it is absolutely outstanding software to connect with within moments. I would say it is no doubt the best ever collaborative tool I have ever used until now.

Pros

Skype for business is the popular product of Microsoft. Since I have been using this software I have seen many changes towards the improvement. I am a frequent user of Skype because I have to keep in touch with my team and clients. It gives complete satisfaction of using this tool. The interesting thing about this application is that it lets us share screen that we use for various purposes. It is such an amazing feature if a user does not want to share file then he can use screen sharing.

Cons

There is just one issue that I face sometimes, its video result becomes blurry and lost its original result. Otherwise it is working perfectly. What I think there should not any compromise with its video result. The service should be same like it provides in the beginning.

Skype is a great tool when an entire organization is using it. It can reduce email, time lost and the disruption of walking to someone's desk, and it's great that there is a record in conversation history in outlook.

Pros

I like that it shows if someone is in a meeting, available, away or offline, and for how long. It's most effective when it pulls from the person's Outlook calendar. I also like being able to have multiple people in a chat, and the screenshare capabilities.

Cons

I don't like that the business version doesn't have all the same emojis as the non-business version!
