Video: Skype for Business Reduces Costs

According to Microsoft, “the modern meeting requires that participants in any location can see, hear, and collaborate within the meeting as easily as if everyone is sitting in the same room.” Technology has allowed us to surpass face-to-face meetings and platforms like Skype For Business have become an integral part in day to day business activities.

As the essential collaboration tool for Media Solutions’ client, Rental Solutions and Services (RSS), RSS utilizes Skype for Business for several communication tasks to enhance their Office 365 utility. Product Controller Rose Gatpolintan of RSS explains how Skype For Business has reduced company costs, increased operational efficiencies, and amplified their communication infrastructure. She is now able to instantly detect team presence and start communication instantly without having to send an email which often go ignored. As a result, she has been able to streamline cash collections and is actively bringing her payables under control.
