Sometimes the greatest challenge is just to get started. To address these and other questions DSC-IT is pleased to present "UC Accelerated".

UC Accelerated helps an organisation to pilot a deployment of Lync 2013 or Skype for Business to a group of users. We will perform a workshop with the key stakeholders of the business to help them understand the capabilities and possibilities of the product and help this can benefit the organisation.

The pilot will combine presence, instant messaging, Web Conferencing and Voice over IP (VoIP). DSC-IT will work with your IT Team to configure and integrate the environment into your existing systems.
