Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams Transition: Zoom Can Help
February 5, 2018 by Derek Pando

The business world was shocked last year when Microsoft announced that it was going to end of life Skype for Business in favor of Microsoft Teams.

As you think about your strategy for the Microsoft transition, remember that Zoom integrates with both Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams. Note that this transition won’t be as simple for your company as the press of a button. It will likely involve migrating users to an entirely new system. Zoom and our integrations will make it so your internal and external communications continue without disruption during this change and beyond. Zoom together with your Microsoft Suite will increase your productivity without disrupting your existing workflows.

Here are the most commons reasons that many enterprises use Zoom in conjunction with Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams:

  • Feature parity for Mac & Linux users
  • An easy way to meet with people outside of your company
  • Multi-party calls
  • All-hands meetings
  • Better bandwidth efficiency
  • Robust software-based room system (Zoom Rooms) with hardware flexibility
  • Including an H.323/SIP room system
  • Video Webinars
  • Training with Video Breakout Rooms (perfect for enterprise training and higher education)
  • Recording meetings
  • Hosting a very large meetings (Zoom can host 500 video participants and 10,000 webinar attendees)
  • Automatic meeting transcripts
