Webinar – Office 365 Means Business

OFFICE 365 MEANS BUSINESS – YES BIG BOLD BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION

Reduce Capital and Travel Expenses, Gain Greater Collaboration and Productivity, Improve Employee Engagement and Provide a Differentiated Customer Experience.

WEBINAR OVERVIEW

Communicating is the one thing we do more than anything else. We speak with each other either in person or via some mediated technology like telephone, voice, IM, text and video chat. We create and send emails. We produce presentations that we deliver via networked conferencing systems. More than ever our people are away from the office working from home, hotels, customer sites, soccer fields, and the beach and everywhere in between. The technologies that enable all of this communication must reach farther, be more readily available, and also must be more secure than ever before.

CONTROL COSTS. DRIVE RESULTS. GET CONNECTED. FOCUS ON YOUR BUSINESS.

Dramatically reduce communications costs (Audio / Video / Web Conferencing / Phone System)
Transform how your teams communicate and collaborate internally as well as with customers and partners
Use familiar tools like Microsoft® Office to do more and make it easier for team members to reach out to each other and get the answers they need to move the business forward.
Reduce spend on IT infrastructure and support by consolidating communications systems and leveraging the cloud
Get even more value out of the Microsoft® Cloud Platform – Office 365

Microsoft vs. Cisco Unified Communications

image

Many companies are finding the great value in having a Unified Communications (UC) solution.  We read about companies, such as Weiss in South Florida , deriving many benefits and drastically reducing cost  from a Microsoft UC based infrastructure.  No doubt this has helped other companies in their decision to move forward towards a communications overhaul.

In this short write up, Scott Long, Director of Managed Services of ClearPointe, expresses it nicely.  Cisco just doesn’t compete!

How Does Microsoft’s UC Reduce Communications Costs?

telephoneIn a UC whitepaper from Microsoft, it was mentioned how replacing old PBX systems can significantly reduce telephony costs.

“In the past, there were essentially one or more PBX or Key systems per location, often accompanied by a set of related systems such as voice mail, interactive voice response (IVR), call centers, call accounting and administration consoles. Now with Unified Communications, consolidation of systems to a single or a few locations and systems is very practical, with support of other sites via secure Internet Protocol connections on the enterprise wide area network (WAN) or the Internet. This savings initiative is often very timely, since many PBX and voice mail systems installed in the late 1990’s are nearing the end of manufacturer’s support and decisions must be made in any case. Applying the consolidation model to those decisions will usually yield major savings. The approach is to establish or expand a central platform to which sites can be consolidated and then to progressively consolidate eligible sites to the central platform. Even if some specialized items, such as IVR Lync Mobile Photo collage 2or a complex call center are not ready for consolidation”

Even if a company is not in a position to replace their full PBX systems, Microsoft Lync Server integrates with existing PBX systems through Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) or qualified gateways, and integrates with qualified third-party SIP Trunking Service providers.

WPC 2012: Looking forward to it!

WPC has so much to offer this year!  Conquest is really excited about attending.

Conquest’s Jon Sastre, President and Ben Tosado, VP of Professional Services are looking forward to engaging with partners, sharing their busines strategies and gaining new insights on upcoming launches.

This past year we’ve enjoyed and have proudly announced the winning of our 2011 Microsoft U.S. Lync  Voice Partner of the Year Award for the Greater Southeast & Mid-Atlantic Districts. We were honored among the top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Here is an excerpt of the press release written last year:

“What we’re most proud of,” explained Conquest President & CEO Jon J. Sastre, “is that we were at the top of the list of partners that Microsoft chose to partner with.”  Conquest, a long-time locally-based provider of IT services to the South Florida region, was chosen from among a field of national providers with presence in South Florida.  “While we are a local South Florida partner,” continued Sastre, “it’s important to point out that since we embraced Microsoft Lync as our primary offering we have been enjoying growing success throughout not only the Southeast, but well into the Mid-Atlantic District as well.”

Conquest was one of the first Microsoft partners to invest significantly in developing their practice around the Microsoft OCS (Office Communications Server) predecessor to Microsoft Lync introduced back in 2007.  “We could see from its infancy what OCS was going to become,” explains Conquest Vice President of Professional Services Benjamin A. Tosado.  “Lync is the fulfillment of that promise, and we are delivering it to small, medium, and large businesses from Miami up to Washington DC.  It’s very exciting to see that dream realized after years of hard work and investment.”

“We are pleased to present Conquest with this award,” said Jack Braman, Vice President-East Region, Small and Mid-market Solutions and Partners (SMS&P) for Microsoft. “Conquest is seen as a leader in the Southeast Region in the area of voice communications. They show a strong commitment to commercial customers throughout the geography.”

“Conquest Technology Services was chosen by their regional Voice Partner Account Manager as the best company to work with in their category,” added Microsoft Voice Business Development Manager Leigh Rubino.  “We thank them for a great 2011!!  “

We are hopeful to see an award this year for another successful year!
