August 6, 2019
South Jordan, Utah and Boston, MA –– CallTower, a global leader in delivering cloud-based enterprise-class unified communications and collaboration solutions today announced that they would continue to support its Native Skype for Business through 2025.
This announcement ensues Microsoft’s recent notification that Skype for Business Online will be retired as of July 31, 2021. CallTower’s Native Skype for Business customers will not be impacted by this Microsoft transition, as their customers are on CallTower’s global private cloud. This private cloud operates on Skype for Business Enterprise Server Edition rather than the Skype for Business Online Edition. CallTower is continuing to invest in Skype for Business Server Edition 2019 to better serve and connect customers.
Skype for Business Server Edition 2019 is the newest software for hosted solutions. Alongside dynamic new features like Cloud Voicemail, Call Data Connector and side-by-side migration, it will bring the optimization and quality improvements resultant of running Skype for Business in Microsoft’s cloud.
Skype for Business Enterprise Server Edition delivers both telephony and audio conferencing, allowing businesses to connect to external telephone services and make calls to any telephone user in the world via VoIP or landline. Enterprise Voice has full PBX call handling features which enable customers with the ability to make and answer calls, with additional features like call waiting, extension dialing, voicemail and auto attendant. Specifically, CallTower’s Native Skype for Business solution empowers organizations with crucial UCaaS integrations including contact center, CRM, CT Cloud Boost, UC Analytics, CT Cloud Unite, CT Cloud Analyze and workforce optimization.
