AdobeStock_tin_can_communication_small.jpgEach week it seems like more organizations are embracing Skype for Business for internal (and sometimes external) communications. Maybe you are in the same boat. If so, you've come to the right place!

This uptick in Skype for Business doesn't come as a huge surprise to us because (a) it's included with Office 365 and (b) we use it ourselves and are very happy with it. Also, teams can often save money by getting rid of licenses for other popular video conferencing solutions.
