No doubt you’ve heard about Skype for Business Voice. You can use this to replace your current PBX and phone carrier. Still, you want to make that transition as seamless as possible. Your phone system is the lifeline of your business, so a careful approach is essential. So how do you decide which partner to work with if you’re considering moving to Skype for Business Voice?
There are tens of thousands of Microsoft partners globally. Trying to identify partners based on experience, subject matter expertise, references and competitive differentiation would be time consuming to say the least. Fortunately, the Skype Operations Framework (SOF) is a proven recipe for successful deployment of Skype for Business Voice. It’s a place where you can find all this information without a lot of hassle. The SOF provides a common vocabulary and a systematic approach to activating Skype for Business Voice.
