The benefits of Skype for Business

Nowadays, it’s imperative for staff to be able to communicate effectively throughout the working day. We all know the horror stories of projects going belly-up when teams haven’t received a message, or communication has generally fallen through at the 11th hour bringing work to a halt.

Atlas Cloud doesn’t just offer Skype for Business as an application – we use it. We understand the importance of clear communication pathways at all times. It’s a great tool and we want to share the benefits of this with all of our clients.


You can connect with team members around the office and also those who are working remotely from home or on the road. It’s quicker than using emails to contact colleagues with questions due to the instant messenger window. If you work remotely, you can make use of the screen sharing capability in meetings so you can still be visually interactive without physically being there. Skype for Business can also be integrated with MS Office applications to make collaboration smoother between staff.


People may believe that using an instant messaging service as a means of communication and file sharing may not be the most secure. With Skype for Business, you can relax knowing you have enterprise-grade security protecting your work. With this level of security, you can manage employee accounts and customise access right for individual users.

A couple of extra benefits include:

Fewer travel expenses – of course, you may need to get to the odd meeting to meet a client, but you don’t need to be in the office every day to get work done if it’s inconvenient for you. Why not schedule a video call as an alternative to a face-to-face meeting with colleagues?

Cross-platform usage – you can use any device with Skype for Business because it’s compatible with Android, iOS, Mac and Windows.
