Today’s workforce is filled with varying schedules, remote locations and many devices. Now more than ever teams require communication systems that quickly and effectively allow groups to get business done together, regardless of location or device. Companies spend time and resources managing multiple vendors for voice, email, instant messaging and video conferencing trying to reach the elusive goal of easy, productive communication and collaboration. Often the result is organizations end up with different technologies for telephony email, instant messaging and chat, conferencing (Audio/Video/Web) with no easy way to schedule the use of all or administer effectively.
Using these disparate systems often fails to deliver better communication or better business results. Eventually, your people are straying from the very technologies intended to help them communicate better, to the point of searching out their own non-IT managed public solutions. Meanwhile the challenges of scheduling meetings and conference calls, finding people, and skyrocketing business travel costs for meetings continue unmitigated.
What if a single vendor could bring together email, instant messaging, voice, web conferencing, video conferencing and presence — knowing where your teams are and when they are available — to stop wasting time and actually make employee meetings and collaboration more productive and easier to begin? All scheduled with a few clicks. Microsoft Unified Communications is that one-stop solution for today’s business when deployed by a skilled partner. Some advantages include:
- Increases end user productivity
- Reduces operational cost through consolidation of services
- Reduces risk to the organization by utilizing secure protocols

Skype Room Systems (formerly Lync Room Systems) - Technology Finally Reaches the Conference Room
A Skype Room System (aka Lync Room System) at Magenium Solutions corporate offices
Visual connection can make communication more natural and more successful in your business process than just a phone call. But traditional video conferencing is difficult to use and costly to operate. Skype Room Systems, aka Lync Room Systems, are designed to be easy to start and allow better integration of all participants. The video gallery enables all meeting attendees to see and be seen by showing both meeting content and remote participants on large screens. Users can communicate and participate in the meeting from any device.
Our in-house Magenium Solutions team has deployed some of the largest Lync Room system implementations among Microsoft customers. Our clients tell us of the gains in both adoption and productivity, and the reduction in overhead versus traditional conferencing systems.
Magenium will be ready to also enhance your video and collaboration needs with the coming release of Microsoft Surface Hub. Surface Hub promises to be an amazing walk-up collaboration tool. We can help decide which solution is right for your space and business needs.
Are you tired of having multiple phone systems? Did the best-of-breed strategy only create more confusion? Maybe you or another partner put in a Lync “proof of concept” and you now want to take it to the next level. Are your telecommunications providers talking to you about the latest buzz around SIP trunking?
We have proven ability to deliver enterprise voice, something often claimed and not always delivered by competing technology systems. With enterprise voice, team members use a headset with their computer in a Voice over IP solution that offers special group collaboration features instead of traditional stand-along conference systems or phones.
We have a proven track record of enabling for businesses large and small, going back to first voice offerings in Microsoft communications products. We are ready to educate you on the next steps for Skype voice with the coming of the voice in the cloud through Office 365.
