  • ​​​​​Are you evaluating using Teams / Skype for Business as PBX, UC Solution or Voice App Platform, but want or must co-exist or integrate with traditional PBX, or Open SIP services and endpoints (phones)?
  • Do you want to enable Active Directory integrated sign on for Office 365, Skype for Business Voice and other Cloud Services?
  • ​​​​​Do you want to transition traditional Active Directory services to use “Cloud AD” or a hybrid on-premise/Cloud AD?

How we help YOU

  • ​​​​​ROI / Cost Model - First and foremost, we help you develop a comprehensive ROI and Cost Model for Office 365 or Teams / Skype for Business Voice. This means an ROI and Cost Model structure for Office 365 Services vs. traditional on-premise upgrades, Skype for Business Voice on-prem vs. hosted/hybrid Teams / Skype for Business Voice, Single Tenant Skype for Business Voice vs. Multi-tenant, and variations of any of these vs. 3rd party alternatives.
  • ​​​​​Procurement / Licensing - Once we pinpoint the ROI/Cost Model, we then help you best understand how to procure and license the solution. As MSFT Alums, we have unique insight and expertise into MSFT licensing and sales models that can be invaluable as a company gets to the “how to buy” stage.
  • Deployment - Our experience with MSFT and large enterprises provides us with unique expertise, perspective and experience that help you quickly and easily transition your company to the Cloud.​​​​​
  • Management / Operations - We help you accelerate the why, what and how of training activities for end users and IT personnel to ensure you realize the benefits of the Cloud – to include updating your IT Support model and the toolset of how you “manage” your new Cloud powered IT services.​​​​​
  • ​​​​​Consulting - We help customers and partners better understand MSFT’s Teams / Skype for Business roadmap. What do the new E5 sku and add-ons deliver? And more importantly, what do they not deliver? What deployment path is right for you — the standalone Skype4B service completely hosted in Office 365, hybrid Teams / SfB or externally hosted SfB?
