“This was one of the top 2 projects I’ve ever been involved in. When I arrived, you guys were already engaged and had sized up the monolithic work to be done. I am impressed by the professionalism, and the smooth delivery of the project. It was a large project, with many elements. The fact that it went so smoothly is a testament to SOS. You guys are great.”

Microsoft Exchange & Lync
You've likely been working on Microsoft platforms and integration for years - and you know what you're doing. Why should handling Exchange or Lync be any different?
Challenges unique to Exchange & Lync
Even experienced IT pros can run into trouble with deploying Lync to properly support such features as:
- Live Meeting remote / outside your organization
- Multiple domain name support
- Enterprise voice functionality or Remote Call Control integration with a supported PBX vendor
- Network QOS for Audio / Video performance

Integrate Microsoft with Cisco & other legacy phone systems, to reduce expenses & increase productivity.
We're also advocates of integrating Microsoft & Cisco, or other legacy phone systems, when it helps cut expenses and/or improve employee productivity and company performance.
We have integrated Microsoft Office Communicator with Cisco Communications Manager for select clients - and many others are going the same route.
Chosing the right platform depends on various, interrelated factors, including business process, desired outcome, timeframe, and more.
Integration Benefits include:
- Avoid the "rip & replace"; Instead, integrate with your existing PBX
- Ease IT administration
- Allow users to work from single interface of choice
- Deliver the highest quality user experience possible
- Improve efficiency & productivity
- Presence management
- Call centers can pull in Subject Matter Experts from enterprise into interaction
- Integrate with other Microsoft apps (Outlook, Word, etc.)

We are here to help you
We are here to help you leverage Microsoft business solutions to drive down IT costs through site consolidation. For example, tap SOS to eliminate expensive voice mail systems at each office and deploy gateway appliances at each office instead. Centralize your voice mail system in your datacenter - a single UM server can support multiple offices, different vendors of PBX, and/or different languages.
